Walter Areia Quartet: Sol e o Girassol

Brazilian bassist and composer Walter Areia has just released a beautiful new song called “Sol e o Girassol.” Written as a theme for his sister, Solange, the song paints a gorgeous picture as the songwriter is joined by percussionist Sebastian Scheriff, pianist Giordanno Barbieri, and accordionist Julian Tarragô.

Areia plays big, beautiful notes on his three-string bass, building the rhythm as the song progress. His lines give breath to the music for the others to build on to create a thoughtful and exciting interplay.
