Since recording Brazilian Duos in 2000, I have spent much time thinking about the tradition of voice and guitar in Brazilian music. It has become clear to me how well the guitar can represent all of the elements of this music: the rich harmonies, the strong melodic content, the percussiveness, the varied rhythms and diverse styles.
For this new collaboration, I invited back Romero Lubambo —a great creative partner who has been performing live with me for many years now— and also Marco Pereira, who remains one of my favorite musicians. My admiration of Swami Jr.’s true Brazilian style is justified on the two tracks he performs on, and Guilherme Monteiro is a wonderful young, modern player who lives in New York. They all bring something new and unique to the voice and guitar tradition, and I am immensely grateful for their generous contributions...In all of my recordings I try to capture the moment –the actual live performance given by me and my collaborators. This is particularly true for these sessions, where each guitarist and I set up in the same room, facing each other, only a few feet apart. I hope our commitment to the jazz spirit comes through in these sambas.
