I am extremely honoured and happy to announce that my new album "Nu Brasil" (ZM201808) will be release by the New York based label ZOHO Music on the 11th of September 2018. The album has some of the most amazing heavy weight jazz artists from Europe, Brazil and the USA, including drummer Mauricio Zottarelli, guitarist Marcus Teixeira, flutist Oriente Lopez, saxophonists Alexey Leon and Perico Sambeat, trumpeter Voro Garcia, pianists Helio Alves and Baptiste Bailly, bassists Ales Cesarini and Ariel Ramirez, singers Paula Santoro, Sergio Santos and Viktorija Pilatovic, rapper/drummer Devin Malloy, harmonica player Gabriel Grossi and percussionist David Gadea Al-Saforaui.
..."Some people just have the right touch... this is jazzy, snazzy and delightfully high octane in it's approach… if this is nu Brazil, put us down for more. Well done".
