Duda Lucena Quartet Live
Who is Duda Lucena? He's a Brazilian singer, songwriter and guitarist of worth. His album Duda Lucena Live (Borboleta) shows you this nicely. It's a live gig he made with some good local South Carolinian musicians, piano, bass, drums...Gerald Gregory on piano in particular sounding quite comfortable in the relaxed bossa and beyond grooves.
As guitarist Duda is not out to overwhelm you with sixteenth note passagework. He has his nylon stringed instrument. He comps Brazil-style. He plays some tasteful solos. He sings well in the style made popular in the classic bossa days.
This is very nice! You like the style, you'll like Duda's album.
