Concert

“We’re already familiar with the countless affinities between jazz and the many Brazilian musical styles, but Montréal guitarist Rodrigo Simões sets out to demonstrate them with almost methodical risk-taking” (Voir, 2018). On mandolin or acoustic guitar, this bold and energetic musician produces a whimsical sound in which traditional Brazilian choro encounters jazz, two styles characterized in particular by improvisation, a joyful sound freed from convention in which samba and bossa nova are reinvented.
