liner notes: For Berlin based Percussionist Andreas Weiser conexão/connection is a programmatic statement for the growing together of cultures from different hemispheres, without ignoring the identities of distinct origins. The music of the band is based on this philosophy. It stands for the get together of latinmusic influenced by brazilian moods with an explizit european feeling for Jazz. The musical outcome of this mutual encounter is a melange of danceable music. Weisers love for brazilian music finds it´s expression in the collaboration with some of the best musicians of brazilian music like Paulo Moura, Bocato, Jorge Degas and Dom um Romao. Since a long time he was dreaming of founding a bandproject which combines the explosive feel of São Paulo with the cosmopolitic atmosphere of Berlin. In 2012 he met the piano-virtuoso Tino Derado who seemed exactly the right man for this new rhythm based latin Jazz project. Soon extraordinary young swedish trumpet player Christian Magnusson joined the Trio. Last but not least, swiss bass maniac Thomy Jordi entered the band and Conexão Berlin was complete. From the beginning, this 5 musicians acted like a natural unit. The first studio session was just a delicious and joyful adventure, so were their live shows as a band full of virtuosity and joyful playing, bringing joy to the audience without denying highly musical ambitions.
Musical paintings by impressionists of today. Poetic sound story to the mind of a happy dancing child. Join us and come with us. Let’s celebrate.

Andreas Weiser has come back from the other side to produce this exquisitely crafted recording, blending his love and deep understanding of Brazilian, Afro-Caribbean musics with his creative visionary sensibilities. This is very personal truly heartfelt project.

The sound of Conexão Berlin makes me happy due to many reasons. It´s allways a pleasure to listen to brazilian music performed by non-brazilians. You recognize how the music-cultur of my homeland is spreading throughout the world. And so i hear Hermeto´s Pipoca, a tune i recordet 1992 for the grammy awardet CD „Brasileiro“ of Sergio Mendes. Also the original compositions, the way this musicians are playing together, as well as the individual talents of the group members are enchanting me. All success for you „Conexão Berlin".
