The Warhol welcomes back composer and cornetist, Rob Mazurek (voted musician of the year by Italian jazz magazine, Musica Jazz) with his latest ensemble Black Cube SP, which features his long standing trio Sao Paulo Underground, in addition to Thomas Rohrer. This quartet features Mazurek on cornet and electronics, Mauricio Takara on drums, electronics and cavaquinho (Brazilian ukelele), Guilherme Granado on keyboard, synths, and sampler, and Thomas Rohrer on rabeca (Brazilian viola) and soprano saxophone. The group's debut record, Return the Tides, on Cuneiform Records (described by the label as a "cathartic and magisterial, post-tropicalia, modern psychedelic spiritual"), is a deeply personal and emotive tribute to Mazurek's mother, who passed away just prior to the recording session.
