My Jazz Story

Published on: 2018-09-18

I love jazz because of Miles Davis and Vitor Assis Brasil. I was first exposed to jazz seeing I Festival Internacional de Jazz de São Paulo in 1978. I met Ron Carter at Arpoador. The best show I ever attended was Miles Davis at Canecão in Rio de Janeiro. The first jazz record I bought was Memorial Clifford Brown. My advice to new listeners... Listen!

My House Concert Story

He was tired, impatient, old, but neverthless still played great music. Pop songs with a different accent. An imperial figure dressed with strong colors, glitter and fuss. And there was the sound. The unique trumpet sound, not quite expressive, very low, but beautiful as always. The record of this night is my treasure forever.
