To reconsider an old expression, this album doesn't just represent the "best of both worlds" – but rather the collective greatness of at least three or four. - Will Friedwald, Wall Street Journal
Bassist/Composer Nilson Matta releases "EastSideRioDrive," a uniquely creative recording that's got some real force and punch to it. The blend of South (Romero Lubambo, Cyro Baptista) and North (Anne Drummond, Craig Handy) American musicians– as well as pianist Edsel Gomez from Puerto Rico - is a wonderfully balanced mixture of jazzy sounds from the two hemispheres. It's soothing and relaxing in places, but gutsy and bold in others – it utilizes the conventions of the genre creatively and, at the same time, refuses to be limited by them.
