"Júlio Resende does with fado, what Keith Jarrett did with jazz standards."- El País

The Portuguese pianist Júlio Resende dedicates his new album "Sons of Revolution" to the "Carnation Revolution" which paved the way for freedom in his home country and also had a decisive influence on Resende's personal life as the son of a Portuguese-Angolan family.  Júlio Resende's "Fado Jazz" is a vital continuation of deep traditions. And music full of haunting melodies, bittersweet melancholy, and stunning beauty.

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
