Adam Dunning's new album, The Return, again showcases this artist’s oceanic vibe. Coined as "jazz and bossa's pop craftsman" (El Sur Records, Tokyo), he brings the exotica of Brazilian Bossa Nova, Istanbul and the folk simpleness of seaside Australian folk for a truly authentic collection of songs once again themed on humanity's relationship to its world.
Time and the return to primal values, culture, respect for the earth and one another are key ingredients of the new album. Musically blessed with orchestration, Brazilian guitars, and Dunning's trademark seductive male vocals, the album was recorded in Rio, Istanbul, and Melbourne, perfectly capturing some of greatest instrumentalists of the world including bassist Guto Verde, Alfredo Cardim (Astrid Gilberto), and string arranger Flavio Mendes, with most tracks produced by Bossa Nova's go-to producer, Alex Moreira (co-founder of Bossacucanova).
Teamed up with the heavenly vocals of Australian folk exponent Tash Parker, Turkey's ChanCe, and Ronaldo Cotrim with whom he created many of Sunset Monkey's unique sounds, he brings a cinematic style to his music, yet keeping to the undeniable Dunning beach and Bossa sound.
Adam has performed in Japan, Brazil, Turkey, the US, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Australia with leading Bossa and jazz exponents including Joao Donato, Roberto Menescal, Cris Delanno, Marcos Valle, ChanCé (Turkey), Marco Brito (Brazil), and Tash Parker (Australia).
