The Three Marias ReviewThis track is nice. It has a nice smooth jazzy, funky beat, more of a a Wynton Marsalis sound and feel to it. Nice transitions as well. The track has potentials for moving up the charts. Looking forward to more from this Artist.
Three Cheers for Three MariasNice, energetic tune, good musicianship all around. Unique tune, not just another chart. The instrumentation is straightforward and it is not over-produced, very natural sound. Good recording quality. A fun listen, you'll want it in your music collection.
Really Love This Bands StyleThis band has a very unique texture to their style. It smooth, and very well written compositions. It is the type of music that you just want to let down the convertible top on your car, turn it up and ride. Dave Percell
The Three Marias Review Robert MeloccaroI would like to thank you for this opportunity to review your song. This is the field of music I would call my 1st love. Mordern Jazz instrumentals. I 1st would like to say the level of execution on the musicianship end is very good .No fluctuations or timing issues and the song stays consistent in that way end to end.It also reminds me of some of the Chick Corea's acoustic band compositions . Very nice rhythmical motif's which weave in and out.Band has made use of dynamics in a very pro jazz band way. I would like to see what this band is capable of when improvising . Those that know and even layman who listen to this kind of music seem to be attracted to a strong composition thats well articulated like yours but live for the added surprise of spontaneity .In my humble opinion if I were involved and wanted to take it to the next level I'd add that which for me really makes this style of music come fully alive. Thanks was a pleasure, Robert Meloccaro
If only I lived in Brazil!!!This band has caught the fever of the salt air, the sun and sky and the dynamics of an urban culture and blended them into a sound that is distinct in its origins yet uniquely personal to their efforts. In the course of 5 minutes and 39 seconds I have been transported from my home in Bristol, England to a place that is full of memories of my sojourn in New York in the 70's and to the beaches of Rio. Yes you can hear traces of Weather Report, Miles, Gismonti, Getz, and Evans in their playing, but the notes and phrases and melodies and rythyms are theirs. Azambas Band performs brilliantly and their sound is superb.
the three mariasHi keep on doing great songs Azambas band and make Brazil and the world proud and a better a place and peaceful with your soul soothing sound . music is our only hope to unite all races.Peace

Instrumental quartet hits it out of the parkAs a flutist myself, I take particular notice to the highs and lows of that instrument. This particular composition lends nicely to the band and the arrangement. It's meditative, yet earthy...it keeps changing and I didn't want to turn it off. I wanted to know where the piece was going and how it would end. I'm impressed with this music.
Good Job Azambas!Your song was excellent. I'm a flute player myself and enjoyed that tremendously. The drums were right there and the bass was smooth and just the right loudness (not over powering). Nice job on the keyboard. The arrangement was very well done with a nice change up towards the end and a nice ending. I'm going to have to go to your web site and find some of your other songs and arrangements. You all were very tight on this wonderful arrangement and composition. You are all very talented and like I say, I'll be looking the Azambas Band up to get to listen to some other great songs that you have done. Keep it going Cheers, Rick
Magical mixture of SmoothnessThis is filled with a wide variety of turns, twists and wonderful surprises. This is what I would call a smooth, home brew. The four become one from the start of this track. This one can touch the soul and bring some joy to your day..

reviewVery good love that intro smooth. The flute adds flavor for sure. I also like that it didn't have a real long intro as well. The switching to a more intense sound was good. No major jumping of instruments. All over great job ty
Nice jazz tuneI like the groove of this and the harmonic progression. It's nice to hear others doing the instrumental jazz stuff. It sounds quite modern with a flute as the primary solo voice. I recommend this one.
FantasticOttima musica molto ben composita. Vi faccio i miei complimenti. Vi chiedo di passare nel mio profilo e ascoltare le musiche mie e darmi un giudizio anche negativo perché dalle critiche si può imparare molto..
AZAMBAS BAND - Go Hear Them !I fell in love with Brazilian music during my early collegiate years working on my Bachelor of Music in Guitar Performance ( a healthy dose of Brazilian guitar music). It is still my "go-to" in terms of what I strive to pursue with learning & creating my own arrangements listening to Yamandu, Jobim, & the list goes on. These guys are the real deal ! Their personal approach and performance of Brazilian stylistics is truly authentic. Go to their website and listen to the tracks. I loved them all. With standards like Zawinul's "A Remark you Made", and others, it no wander that most Americans view Brazilian music as "classical"; where-as these folks just groove ! Obrigado !
