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”.

”In a performance that I gave in Sorocaba, I met Lineu’s father who told me: ‘I have already seen you playing a 7-string guitar made by my son’. Well, I am already playing one and all I can say is that all my other guitars are in silence now. Lineu’s guitar is versatile and goes well in different styles. It is a good instrument. I have no words to explain the sonority of it because it is a secret that only the greatest luthiers of the world know.”
