MOZIK is a collaboration between pianist Gilson Schachnik and drummer Mauricio Zottarelli, both Brazilian musicians based in the US. The group offers a muscular new take on Brazilian jazz through their original compositions and unique arrangements of classic songs, showcasing many different styles and grooves. Their captivating album MOZIK reflects their deep engagement with Brazilian rhythms and forms, filtered through their love of the early fusion of Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock. 

The group includes a fascinating international cast of musicians, including Brazilian guitarist Gustavo Assis-Brasil, Russian flutist Yulia Musayelyan and Argentine bassist Fernando Huergo. The quintet navigates effortlessly the intricate grooves with much precision and power, from Afoxé beats to Maracatú grooves, baião, samba, folkloric melodies, and bossa-nova and jazz inspired harmonies. 

Mozik was selected by the prestigious blog “Jazz Station” by Arnaldo deSouteiro, as the #1 best new talent of 2011, and included on their “15 best CDs of 2011”. Mozik was also selected as a “Top Pick” of 2012 by Jazz Inside Magazine.  The group has been praised by many important publications such asDownbeat Magazine, All About Jazz, Jazz Inside, Jazz Drummer World and Modern Drummer Magazine Brazil, among many others. 
“Seamlessly blending funk, Afro-Cuban and Brazilian rhythms… The quintet's music is both warm and intelligent”. All About Jazz

“Vivacious and exciting.” Downbeat Magazine

“They just sound so connected. It is rare to find an album that just radiates sunshine and good vibes from the first note, but Mozik is one of those rarities and should be embraced and cherished for the upcoming winter months. Highly recommended.”  Music Watch – UK
