We will meet again soon – Kiko Continentino
The great thing about having concerts abroad is, besides the pleasure to play, get to know new places and meet new people, to be together with old friends. One of them will definitely be the fantastic piano player and composer Kiko Continentino. We met for the first time in Belo Horizonte for the recording sessions of the Dumee & Dijkgraaf Quinteto in which Kiko is the piano player. That was an amazing experience working with a real dream team.
Hopefully Kiko will be able to join Jan and me during the concert in the Blue Note with Jaques Morelenbaum Cello Samba Trio.
You’ll find a lot of beautiful material from Kiko on Youtube (also check him out with Milton Nascimento), but here is one of my favorite videos; a really nice production by Nelson Faria who regularly invites the creme-de-la-creme of the Brazilian jazz scene.
