This thesis connects the influence of Erroll Garner, George Shearing, Oscar Peterson and Nat King Cole to the establishment of Cesar Camargo Mariano's musical style in a trio setting. It shows that Mariano's piano trio playing created a new feel categorized by this author as "samba jazz feel," which was derived from the fusion of the rhythmic basis of samba with some rhythmic aspects of jazz. To show this, the author uses musical analysis along with qualitative interview data drawn from an exclusive interview with Mariano and from his memoir. Historical aspects of the development of both samba and the swing rhythmic traditions are discussed, as well as historical background on the development of the American and Brazilian music industries. The author claims that while the basis of Cesar Camargo Mariano's musical concept are the samba and bossa nova, jazz stylings greatly influenced the establishment of his musical style, mainly his piano trio style, which is one of the most important representatives of the samba jazz feel.
