Rodrigo Simões’ second album, “Jazz Brésilien” is the result of two years of research through the University of Montreal’s Jazz Masters Degree program, where he evolved under the direction of bassist Alain Caron (UZEB). The instrumentals themes and vocals pieces (both French and English) are inspired by the rhythms of Brazilian musical traditions such as Maracatú, Forró and Samba. Rodrigo (electric guitar, classical and bandolim) is joined by a group of experienced musicians: Fabrice Laurent (drums and percussion), Papacho Sirdey (piano, rhodes and melodica), André Galamba (bass) and the guests Aquiles Melo (congas), Jean-Pierre Zanella (saxophone) and Sonia Johnson (vocal). All pieces are composed by Rodrigo, with the collaboration of Sonia Johnson (Juno award recipient), lyricist of three songs in the album. There is also a samba version of Bluesette (Toots Thielemans / Norman Gimbel) arranged for the occasion.The album was released by the Montreal-based record label Multiple Chord Music (MCM) and is available on all digital platforms...
