"A great pairing." * * * * (four stars), John Ephland, Downbeat Magazine
Each a celebrated artist in his own right, guitarist Chico Pinheiro (from São
Paulo) and guitarist Anthony Wilson (from Los Angeles) join forces in this 2008 release.
"Nova" explores Brazilian bossa nova and American jazz
through a unique lens. A program of mostly original music with a few well-chosen covers, featuring special guests Ivan Lins, Dori Caymmi, and
Cesar Camargo Mariano, the recording has received raves from
critics and audiences in the USA and South America. This November 2012 Bandcamp release marks its first availability as a *legal* digital download.
