O’s Notes: Brazilian jazz guitarist and composer Diego Figueiredo assembles a quartet with Eduardo Machado (b), Alexandre Piu (p) and Fernando Rast (d) for Antarctica, his latest release. The project was initiated in Cleveland, recording the four solo tracks before Figueiredo returned to Brazil, with the rise of the pandemic (mid-March 2020), to complete the album with his quartet. Diego was a child prodigy and at 39, he has had a wealth of success with over 26 albums under his belt! Highlights are the playful “Caribbean Gonzaga”, “Seville”, “My Friend Menescal” and the title track in a peaceful set.
