Sax section (Spok Frevo Orquestra)

Frozen Sessions

On top of the fast and fizzy rhythms of the Brazilian group Spokfrevo Orquestra a brilliant section of exploding horns spits fire into the music. Led by saxophone player Inaldo Cavalcante de Albuquerque also known as Spok, the band fuses the Brazilian regional style frevo with the spirit of improvised jazz. The group’s latest effort is the excellent 2014 release Ninho de Vespa, their US debut album. Just like the Buena Vista Social Club spreading the musical heritage of Cuba, Spokfrevo Orquestra takes a piece of extraordinary traditional Brazilian music into the 20th century, blending it with an force full army of horns, getting enthusiastic crowds up on their feet and dancing to the fiery rhythms.
