The new album by the pianist and composer Júlio Resende, Júlio Resende Fado Jazz Ensemble, was released simultaneously in Portugal and Spain. As the title itself states, it is a surprising and original combination of two musical styles: fado and jazz.
It consists of original tracks composed by Júlio Resende, with arrangements of traditional songs such as Lira, including for the first time the lyrics of the only song performed by the fado singer Lina Rodrigues, in Profecia. This album also enjoys the participation of musicians such as Alexandre Frazão on drums, André Rosinha on double-bass and Bruno Chaveiro on Portuguese guitar.
On 2 October, Júlio Resende will be presenting this new work on stage in the CCB’s Main Auditorium.
«It is an arrow with a sucker tip, fired at a target known as the “bosom”. As to the record itself, it is a free album, in which the Portuguese guitar and piano intersect with one another, and, in conjunction with the double-bass and drums, they try to make the most of this new place that they are strolling around and discovering together. Whether it’s fado or whether it’s jazz, I don’t know. It could be both, but in reality I don’t know, because those who know normally don’t move forward. Those who already know are stuck in that knowledge and don’t move from there. I prefer not to know, just to move and go. Free. Like the sound.» – Júlio Resende
