Andre Matos: Fantasies Realized
AAJ: You certainly have a searching style, where do you see your music progressing next?
AM: I don´t write much on my tunes; in a way I want to do it even less and explore a somewhat freer playing, maybe develop it in a trio setting and try to put together different styles of playing the guitar which in some way are all the different facets I think I have. In the other hand, I also want to write more and more and maybe expand the band, with instruments that I never thought of using. I have the fantasy of using a lot of instruments in a perfect combination of written and improvised music. Also, I would like to record a jazz album, maybe playing songs, with guitar bass and drums, and do it simple and honest, if you know what I mean, just pure, uncompromised and warm jazz guitar music.
