Ignatz Zatz

Inácio Zatz is a contemporary composer/singer who expresses in his writing the multiculturalism of his city with competency and humor. Helped by Mário Manga (Premê's co-leader and a requested producer), Zatz has enough resources to make interesting and catchy melodies in different styles, like samba, blues, rock, and valse. But the strongest point are his lyrics, and there are some of them in English -- even if these ones hadn't reached the level of daring, humor, and relaxation of the Portuguese ones. A very original and competent release in the pop field. ~ Alvaro Neder, All Music Guide

A striking, surprising, and quite pleasant new example of the Brazilian mix'n'match method of music making... The album opens on a potentially troublesome note -- a piercing, BB King-style, electric blues riff, the sort of thing that in the United States has signified a muscle-bound, moribund musical genre ("urban blues") that has completely lost its creative edge for the last few decades... Naturally, when you hear someone in Brazil pick up a twang bar and wail away, your first instinct is to run and hide -- yet far from sucking, Inacio Zatz is a gas. For one thing, he's not a blues musician... at least he's not limited to the style. Actually, he doesn't seem to be limited to any style: this is an impressively eclectic record, incorporating bossa nova, afro-bloco percussion, Asian traditional and various shades of rock with equal ease. A few overly-goofy moments, but on the whole, well worth checking out!
