Setembro — A Brazilian Under The Jazz Influence

Romero Lubambo's "Setembro — A Brazilian Under The Jazz Influence" is a fabulous aural portrait of a musician who bridges the divide between jazz and Brazilian popular music, and between acoustic and electric jazz guitar.

"Setembro" brings Romero's influences full circle, as he performs jazz standards, tunes from legendary Brazilian composers, and his own compositions.
