Dom Salvador is an award-winning Brazilian jazz pianist, composer, and arranger. His previous album, The Art of Samba Jazz, won the 2012 BRAZILIAN MUSIC AWARD for Best Instrumental Album. Eubie Blake heard his music and wrote him in a letter in 1977: "I like your style of playing."
Salvador was born in Rio Claro, in the state of São Paulo. In 1961, Dom Salvador was invited by the drummer Dom Um Romão to join the group Copa Trio and performed in the famous jazz scene of Beco Das Garrafas (Rio's 52nd Street). He also accompanied other young artists such as Quarteto em Cy, Jorge Ben, and Elis Regina, and recorded the latter's first album, Samba - Eu Canto Assim. He would later go on to participate in recordings with Elza Soares, Sylvia Telles, Edu Lobo, Roberto Carlos, and the last album of the legendary composer and saxophonist Pixinguinha. From 1966 to 1973, Dom Salvador was the official pianist for the Brazilian label Odeon, and participated in hundreds of recordings with leading Brazilian artists of the time. In 1973, Dom Salvador moved to the US, and since then, he has recorded with Charlie Rouse, Paul Horn, Ron Carter and Egberto Gismonti. Dom Salvador also participated in Harry Belafonte's European tour as an artistic director, performing for Queen Elizabeth II's 25th Jubilee. For the past 38 years, he has been the in-house pianist for the renowned The River Cafe.
