Twist (1994) is the third solo album by New Zealand singer-songwriter Dave Dobbyn, his first recorded in New Zealand after almost a decade living overseas. It was produced by Neil Finn and featured Finn and two members of The Mutton Birds on guitars, bass and drums, as well as contributions by Tim Finn, Don McGlashan and US record producer Tchad Blake. The album was released in the United States with a slightly altered track listing, and some tracks replaced by songs from his previous album.
CARLOS BICA is a fusion, eclectic fusion, 21st century modern post-fusion contemporary music artist. Double bass player and composer, Carlos Bica, is one of the most prolific and innovative sound artists of Portugal. Known for his lyrical tone on the double bass, Bica has the rare ability to write melodies that essentially are songs without words, haunting and unforgettable. It was voted "Best jazz record of the year" in Portugal in 1996 and it's widely accepted as the best portuguese jazz album ever done.
Carlos Bica worked in groups of Maria João before he founded Azul together with Black and Möbus. Besides in Der Rote Bereich Möbus is involved in a quartet with Daniel Erdmann, Samuel Rohrer and Vincent Courtois and in the group KUU! with singer extraordinaire Jelena Kuljic. Bica, Black and Möbus are thus long-standing musical accomplices who have absorbed a broad range of musical influences. The trio unfolds and develops melodic baselines in appealing and dramatic ways. The album starts with the blue green soughing of "Mafalda" that is strongly reminiscent of the rustling of the wind in Lisbon's Botanical Garden where apparently the cover photo was taken by Vera Marmelo. Slowly the melody unfolds, but the piece, composed by Bica and Portuguese pianist João Paulo Esteves da Silva, keeps its vegetal nature.
