No início dos anos 60, não haviam “rótulos” e sim, gêneros musicais. Assim que a Bossa Nova se consagrou no exterior, passou a ser considerada um gênero musical "internacional" . Na verdade, uma elite brasileira que optava por boa música, já falava em Bossa Jazz, Balanço ou Samba Jazz. E quando o saxofonista americano, Stan Getz, lançou o álbum "Jazz Samba”, o Brasil “achou” o rótulo "Samba Jazz”, que pode ser… uma maneira "meio Bossa de tocar Jazz…” E é isso que faz Marvio Ciribelli… e sempre com um toque de bom humor nos seus "Sambas Novos”… boa música para felizes ouvintes.
Alex Malheiros, bass player from 'Azymuth', Crazy Samba Brazilian Band
Como pianista, Marvio Ciribelli es versátil, dinámico y energético, incorporando dentro de su improvisación jazzística variados elementos de diversas fuentes, incluyendo música clásica, lo cual típicamente deja electrizada a la audiencia. Escuchando a Marvio tocar el piano uno es capaz de sentir cómo recrea el espacio y la historia de la canción como si fuese casi tri-dimensionalmente, lo cual lo vuelve una experiencia que alcanza todos los sentidos. Marvio es un exponente de lo mejor de la música brasilera, manteniéndose a la vez bien enraizado en todos los aspectos del jazz. Como arreglista, puede transformar cualquier canción en una historia musical cautivante y energizada. Como compositor, él sabe cómo entretejer una melodía cohesiva con el elemento de sorpresa. A todo esto se añade el empuje, dedicación y profesionalismo que hacen de Marvio un ganador entre artistas.”
Raquel Cepeda, cantante venezolana arraigado en los Estados Unidos
Marvio is a fixture on Rio’s jazz scene as a pianist, composer, and arranger. His approach to the piano is highly percussive and thoroughly imbued with Brazilian rhythmic drive. His improvisations are models of storytelling, full of humor and passion.
