Vitamina D is guitarist André Santos' third album, following Ponto de Partida (2013) and Mano A Mano (2014). Not having heard the earlier two discs, there is little to say here about this latest project in relation to Santos' earlier work.

From the ...

André Santos: Ponto de Partida

Read "André Santos: Ponto de Partida" reviewed by Phil Barnes

There is something wonderful about watching a talented musician make the leap to bandleader and composer on record for the first time. Possibilities have yet to be closed off, the inspiration simply to showcase a personal take on the music they love, the budget not even contemplating high concepts, lavish orchestras, or if you're Rick Wakeman ...
