"MOZIK" - MOZIK
mozik records (2011)
cdbaby  itunes amazon

Mauricio's new collaboration project is a group/CD called "MOZIK". Mauricio Zottarelli (drums) and Gilson Schachnik (piano, keys) have been playing together since 2004, and the ideas for a new collaborative project have been developing ever since. The album reflects some of the music both of them grew up listening to, as well as the material they both have been playing recently. The main goal was to play the music without too much preocupation of sounding "authentic", and letting it flow through each player's influences and ideas. Therefore, be it a beloved tune from Jobim, or a Herbie Hancock fusion classic, the music in this release is a true "melting-pot" of many different influences and styles: Brazilian, Latin, Funk, Fusion, Rock, and even some more traditional (and less known) Brazilian rhythms and grooves.

featuring:

GUSTAVO ASSIS BRASIL * FERNANDO HUERGO * MAURICIO ZOTTARELLI * YULIA MUSAYELYAN * GILSON SCHACHNIK

This captivating new album reflects the group's deep engagement with Brazilian rhythms and forms, filtered through their love of the early fusion of artists such as Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock.
