Just debuted a new project: myself and a group of friends decided to form an art collective that we called “Facção Canalha”. For this colaborative project we dicided to make a record that would be released on the exibith premiere on the 18th June 2010.
Been listening to the two records that Danish guitarrist Mikkel Ploug recorded with the “Mikkel Ploug Group” for the Fresh Sound New Talent Label. Both disc have the same line-up: Ploug on guitars, Mark Turner on tenor saxophone, Jeppe Skovbakke on bass & Sean Carpio on drums.
Kurt Rosenwinkel is for me the most important jazz guitarist of my generation. And i don’t say this lightly or without having previously heard almost all his recorded output and collaborative efforts with other musicians.
