Julio Resende translates the bittersweet "Blues" and the brighter side of Fado music from his homeland into the language of jazz. "His approach to Fado is reminiscent of what Keith Jarrett does with jazz standards" (El Pais).

Júlio Resende
The pianist and composer Júlio Resende is one of the leading Portuguese musicians of our time and a pioneer of a new genre called "Fado-Jazz." He translates the bittersweet "blues" but also the cheerful side of Fado music into the language of jazz. As a true pioneer in this field, Resende is already an established artist in his homeland, filling classical concert halls and collaborating with international stars such as Fado singer Amália Rodrigues or in a duo with classical pianist Maria João Pires. "What Júlio Resende does with Fado reminds me of what Keith Jarrett does with jazz standards." - El País, Spain
