The musician from Rio de Janeiro, Cláudio Jorge, is a guitarist, composer, singer, arranger and producer and collects a 35-year-long career. He was featured in a Brazilian Newspaper named “GGN” to talk about his new album. He has been in the project, with 15 tracks, for a long time and it was inspired in his childhood musical memories: a lot of samba and ‘bossa nova’ with jazz influences.
The album is called “Samba jazz, de raiz” and it took 3 years to be recorded. The new project contains 15 tracks: “The melody of the songs is similar to the samba from Rio de Janeiro, but I gave it a ‘jazz treatment’. It is an album in which the songs are more important than the arrangements”.
