After listening to “Lamento” I started looking for more songs. Pretty soon I became a fan. My favorite song is “Tema Em 3”, a song composed and arranged by the talented Chico Pinheiro. You can listen to this song by clicking here. If you like the song you can buy it and others of his album “Chico Pinheiro” at iTunes. The guy behind the wonderful piano in this song is Fabio Torres. Great performance!
I can’t wait to go to Brazil next week and buy his album with another of my favorite guitar players, Anthony Wilson! They recorded the album “NOVA” in São Paulo, in June, 2006. NOVA includes eight original songs and compositions by Wayne Shorter, João Donato and Dorival Caymmi. The album has the participation of my cousin Paulo Paulleli, my favorite bass player ever! You can check the song "Café com Pão", from João Donato, from the album NOVA in the Brazilian radio show, Vozes do Brasil. Pay attention to the percussion my cousin makes with his mouth. I saw him doing it at Blue Note, in New York. Genius!
