Today’s LJC Video Feature finds Brazilian guitarist and composer Conrado Paulino fronting his Quarteto for an exciting samba entitled “Nena 5.” Paulino brings a distinct sense of class and style to his work as a composer, creating a piece that captures the energy of samba while placing lush harmonies over a precise arrangement. As a player, he puts some impressive chops to good use, crafting a melodic improvised statement playing finger style on his nylon string guitar. His band delivers some attention grabbing work too, with a cleverly rhythmic solo from pianist Debora Gurgel as well as a consistently bouyant groove from bassist Marinho Andreotti and drummer Percio Sapia. The Quarteto plays with an elegance and refinement that we don’t always see from jazz quartets – there’s an almost chamber quality to the music. It’s an approach that deserves more listening – this song comes from the group’s Quarteto album, which is a must-hear release. Make sure that you give the album a listen, but in the meantime, enjoy the group’s live performance of “Nena 5”!
