Genil Castro: he is my current guitar teacher. He sounds a lot like Teg Greene and Lenny Breau. I really like his playing.
Fabio Gouvea is a multi-instrumentist and composer. In this song he`s playing guitar. Sounds very much original and modern for me.
Oliver Pellet: this guy is a friend of mine. A very skillful player and composer. He recorded his first album not so long a go, which includes the participation of the great Seamus Blake in a song, and a lot of great brazilian musicians all over the album.
This video is an excerpt of "Invitation", though it`s very bad recorded, there is no problem with the sound.
You can hear more of his sounds at myspace: myspace.com/oliverpelletmusico
Hamilton de Holanda Quintet: It`s a brazilian instrumental music with a very peculiar line-up. Mandolin, Guitar, Harmonica, Double Bass and Drums.
It one of my favorite groups in brazil.
Nelson Veras is a brazilian guy who`s been living in france. I see him as one of the greats, like Kurt, Jonathan Kreisberg, Lage Lund and so on. Actually he does have a partnership with JK, available as far as I know only at myspace.
His version of Joe Henderson`s Inner Urge is fantastic.
