"Júlio Resende Fado Jazz Ensemble” is characterised by a surprising and original combination of the two styles mentioned above: Fado and Jazz.
With original songs composed by Júlio Resende, assuming for the first time the authorship of the lyrics of the only song sung by the fado singer Lina Rodrigues, in "Prophecy", this work counts with the presence of a Portuguese guitar, an instrument with a unique sonority, played by Bruno Chaveiro, Alexandre Frazão on drums and André Rosinha on double bass. This project also includes an unprecedented gesture. Júlio Resende is the only artist authorised to use the voice of Amália Rodrigues in an Impossible Duet between Resende and the Diva of Fado in the song "Medo".
"It's an arrow with a suction cup at the tip, shot at the target called 'chest'. You hit it, you hope to find in that place a strong connection, that it doesn't fall; as if the suction cup becomes part of the skin. Something that lasts, that's what my music wants to be. About the album, it is a free album, in which the Portuguese guitar and the piano intercept each other, and with the double bass and the drums try to make the most of this new place that they discover together, strolling around. Whether it's Fado or Jazz, I don't know, maybe it's both, but I really don't know, because those who know don't usually move forward. He who already knows is stopped in that knowledge. I prefer not to know, just to go, free. Like the sound".
