Projeto Coisa Fina Short Info

The story of the Projeto Coisa Fina starts with Moacir Santos, the Brazilian maestro who recorded several albums for Blue Note in the seventies. The great composer became largely forgotten in his homeland after spending many years in the US. And then, an album with interpretations of his work was released in 2001. Like many other Brazilians, saxophonist Daniel Nogueira was captivated by Santos's music. He set up Projeto Coisa Fina to give the arrangements a contemporary feel. He does this with the help of twelve young musicians. They rework Santos's inventive compositions and brazilian rhythms into exciting jazz grooves. The revival of the works of Moacir Santos not only gives the world the gift of beautiful arrangements, but also Projeto Coisa Fina with a new generation of Brazilian jazz musicians.
After 8 years, as Ouro Negro still reverberates in their souls, the band decided to record their second album with a new flavor, bringing back all the creative and anthological music of gorgeous Brazilian unknown composers.
The revival of this music has an extreme cultural importance not only for Brazil but for the world as it is pretty vibrant and presents beautiful combinations between contemporary music elements and brazilian references with a grooving jazz feeling. An experience to be felt!
Projeto Coisa Fina laurels rest on the ability of transforming brazilian music sophistication into thrilling tunes for the upcoming generation. Their new CD "Coisa Fina" is an absolutely astounding debut.
