The Sunday Jazz Brunch Presents

Diego Figueiredo

Air Date: 4/24/2022

Guitarist Diego Figueiredo likes to take lots of pictures of wherever he is playing, and posts them on Facebook. You can tell that wherever he goes, he spreads joy and warmth. Just like his music.

It is only a few months since his prior release, Antartica, and already he has a new one Follow the Signs.

I consider the prolific guitarist to be one of the best combinations of technical skill and artistic lyricism of any Brazilian guitarist working today. And he has a very enthusiastic following. The last time I wrote about Mr. Figueiredo, there were triple the usual number of hits on my website, mostly from Brazil.

Eleven of the twelve songs on the new CD are originals, which is so refreshing - to have a Brazilian artist who writes and performs original music rather than putting out new versions of favorite old bossa nova songs by Antonio Carlos Jobim (nothing against that, though!).

You'll hear several tracks from the new CD scattered throughout today's show, and more to come in the following weeks. 

Thanks for tuning in to the Sunday Jazz Brunch.
