Mit seiner unverwechselbaren Stimme hat sich Ed Motta in die Herzen seiner Fans gesungen und genießt mittlerweile weltweite Berühmtheit. Eigentlich war der Werdegang von Ed Motta schon seit seiner Geburt vorbestimmt: Als Neffe des berühmten Sängers Tim Maia wuchs er in einem musikalischen Haushalt auf. Schon früh begann Motta, seine eigene Musik zu schreiben. Als Solokünstler gelang ihm in den 1990ern der Durchbruch, spätestens mit dem Album „Aystelum“ avancierte er zum internationalen Star. Ed Motta bedient sich nicht nur verschiedener Musikstile, sondern auch unterschiedlicher Sprachen. Er singt auf Portugiesisch, Englisch und Spanisch. Mit seiner wunderschönen Stimme haucht Ed Motta seinen Songs Leben ein und findet den Weg direkt in die Herzen seiner Zuhörer. Der Sänger ist ein absolutes Schwergewicht der internationalen Jazz- und Bluesszene.

Der Koloss von Rio, Grammy-nominierte Sänger, Songwriter & Entertainer ist mit Mitte 40 bereits eine Legende in Brasilien. Unter anderem Gilles Peterson, Roy Ayers, Seu Jorge, Bo Diddley und Ryuichi Sakamoto sind Kollegen, die ihn verehren und mit ihm gearbeitet haben. Sein Herz schlägt für AOR, „Adult Oriented Rock” – und so wird sich Mottas neues Album wieder diesem von Acts wie Earth, Wind & Fire, Chicago und Steely Dan geprägten Genre widmen. Der international anerkannte Multi-Instrumentalist & Lebemann hatte schon immer ein Faible für Soul, Jazz, Funk und Rock, und die Musik auf seinen in Brasilien veröffentlichten Platten war weit komplexer als seine Radiohits. Platten wie „Dwitza“ und „Aystelum“ setzten Maßstäbe. Ed Motta entwickelte seine Musik konsequent in diese Richtung weiter. Sein 2016 auf Membran europaweit veröffentlichtes Album „Perpetual Gateways“ wurde von keinem geringeren als Kamau Kenyatta produziert (Gregory Porters Mentor und Produzent) und ist eine perfekte Mischung aus Black Jazz und Soul. Sein kräftiger Bariton, sein großartiges Spiel an Piano & Rhodes und seine funky Band machen Eds Musik nicht nur auf Platte, sondern vor allem live zum großen Vergnügen. Motta tourt jedes Jahr mehrmals in Europa und in Nordamerika. Im September 2018 erschien, wieder über Mebran, sein neues Album "Criterion of the Senses".

„The warm Fender-Rhodes prelude tells it all: with his new album the Brazilian is carrying us off into soft eighties-soul-spheres. The song "Sweetest Berry" is the force behind this smooth feel-good-sound à la Luther Vandross, crowned with a baritone that sits somewhere between a honeypot and a bubble bath. Even though the record ends on a funky note and the closing title is reminiscent of Huey Lewis and The News the comfort-zone-flow is never disrupted." tip Berlin*****

"With diversified but deeply rooted nonchalance Motta charms himself through the world." Rolling Stone


Ed Motta

Criterion of the Senses

(MustHave/ Membran)

Authenticity is an illusion. A pretty one, but still and all a product of our imagination. Only a select few things can be determined as "real", ultimately our personal perception determines what we believe to be authentic. Here’s where we take a detour into the neurobiological realm of the senses, a largely unexplored world of wonders that stimulate the heart and mind through hearing, sight and feeling, as perfectly exemplified by "Criterion of the Senses". This temple of an album by the Brazilian Sultan of Soul Ed Motta marks his return to "AOR" - with the highly acclaimed album of the same name, "the best album Steely Dan never made" (soulandjazzandfunk.com), Ed Motta became the pioneer of the ever growing fascination with "Adult Oriented Rock", also known as "Yacht Rock", some five years ago.

Recently, his compilation “Too Slow To Disco Brasil” received highest accolades from Record Collector to Mixmag. "I'm a collector," admits Ed Motta, no news for his 450,000 Facebook friends. "Most obviously of records - I have about 30,000 LPs in my collection. For me, the collection is personality, it’s the thing that moved me to make music, to go to the piano and to be one of them. As in “I’m going to do that thing that I love to hear so much”.” How well he succeeds at this is more evident than ever on "Criterion of the Senses", an album which presents eight all new tracks, a discrete forty minutes playing time, perfect for two sides of an LP, each one of them holding and unfolding a universe. The sound spectrum ranges from Soul to Fusion to Funk and Soft Rock, thoroughly and passionately recorded and produced at Estudio Marini, A Casa and Ed Motta's own Dwitza studio, all of them based in Rio de Janeiro. The names of the featured musicians may not mean much to us, but their musical ability alone explains why they have been worshiped in Brazil since the Seventies. With their solos and even in the airtight ensemble playing, they give these songs, all of them composed, texted, arranged and produced by Ed Motta, exactly that sensual quality he himself appreciates as a listener. "Lost Connection to Prague", track 1 on the A-side, starts off the proceedings by offering the warm Fender Rhodes sound and the clear elegance of what sounds like a lost bonus track from "Aja". Even here, despite the subdued vocals, Ed Motta's greatest gift reveals itself: his voice. It works like a friendly invitation into his emotional world, sometimes deeply and gently flattering, then again with the soulful depth of a Donny Hathaway or unbounded in the excitement over the superficial service phrase "There's your voucher!". The sophisticated stepper "Sweetest Berry" shuffles into the heart of every Soul sister, while "Novice Never Noticed" keeps its somber tension with complex harmonies and breaks. "Required Dress Code" breathes a strangely uplifting melancholy and also presents one of the most beautiful hooks on the album. On to the B-side: "X-1 in Test", a real heartbreaker, explores the relationship of soul and jazz-funk, also with the background vocals of Brooklyn bredsinger Alma Thomas. Bass-clarinet in a Pop-song? The beautiful "The Tiki's Broken There", a double lead vocal with Cidalia Castro, answers this question in the best possible way. From the rough synth bass line to the hand claps, "Your Satisfaction Is Mine" is the most danceable sort of disco funk, circa 1982, and the lead single of the album, personally selected with Motta-Intimus Bluey of Incognito. As if turning the radio-dial from the R&B-station to SoftRockFM, "Shoulder Pads" pays homage to the Eighties of Walkmen, VCRs, and shoulder-padded jackets with hair-rocking guitar riffs, and a hair-raisong electric-guitar solo. The lyrics, also written by the perfectionist mastermind behind "Criterion of the Senses", are multi-layered pieces of art in their own right, sometimes abstract poetry, sometimes straight love-songs, open-ended short stories inspired by science fiction, espionage, adventure and crime thrillers, or Franz Kafka, once even with a quote from Shakespeare's Hamlet.

The clear positioning and stance, apparent in every detail of this multi-layered pop album, as well as Ed Motta’s flawless artistic concept, could ensure, as it was recently stated in a completely different context in a blog on Freitag.de, "to expose authenticity as that which it will ultimately always be: a presentation, a media construct." Either way, with or without ulterior motive and philosophical discourse, perhaps only in the delightful freefall of sensual pleasures," Criterion of the Senses" is a magnificent album, possibly even – a sentence that has to be included in any authentic artist bio.
