Since its inception in 1979, Cabo Frio has become one of the nation’s premier jazz groups; and a cultural institution in Rochester NY. Emerging from the musically fertile Upstate New York region home to a host of other acclaimed musicians like Cab Calloway, Chuck Mangione, and Steve Gadd–Cabo Frio’s humble beginnings date back to 1979 when its members from the Rochester-Buffalo area joined profound musical forces. Cabo Frio’s recording career began in 1982 with the release of its self-titled album; at that time the band was at the forefront of the genre of music called – fusion.

Cabo Frio is celebrating 37 years of the recording. The group has been the support act for Pieces of a Dream, Jeff Lorber, Spyro Gyra, The Yellow Jackets, Dave Valentine, Paquito D’Rivera, Joe sample and the late great Phyllis Hyman. Additionally, Cabo Frio has provided powerful performances at countless jazz festivals across the nation.
Cabo Frio reflects cultural diversity within its music. Influenced by cultures around the world, its members merged their backgrounds and individual sounds to create music that is diverse as its audiences.

Dreamin is fresh new music from Cabo Frio! From the silky smooth “Dreamin” to the funky “Lorber Style,” one can tell that this project is full of the warmth and soulful assets that have made the contemporary jazz genre so popular. Cabo Frio has thousands of fans across the United States and abroad; and Dreamin is clearly the group’s next step in creating radiant jazz and smooth sounds all the while engaging new fans in 2016.
