ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Aguas” (2007) is the second solo CD from guitarist and composer Jens Viggo Fjord, after his “Marilua” (2000), recorded in São Paulo, Brasil, featuring some of the finest instrumentalists of this boiling capital of brazilian music.


The 4/6-07 Boris Rabinowitsch wrote in the national danish newspaper Politiken:

"LOVE RETURNED"
Jens Viggo Fjord is a danish guitarist who has falled in love with brazilian music. And, remarkably, a love which is happily returned, as shown on this cd recorded in São Paulo and in Madrid together with brazilian musicians, among others, the drummer Magno Bissoli.
Fjord is a very good instrumentalist, and with the exception of 'Favela' by A.C.Jobim, is he also composer of all the tunes. A couple of them sounds a little mainstream, but the majority are really first-class works, and a pair of them, as 'Borboleta', played in duet together with the guitarcolleague Rogério Souza, and 'Janaína' played by Fjord solo, are pure pearls.
But let me also mention the frevo 'Frívola, and the vivacious samba, Alô Bonfá, where we can listen to the excelent fluteplayer, Maurício de Souza, and the ballad 'Luar na Guanabara', in which Antonio Serrano elaborates the atmosphere with his lirical harmonic."

Participants:

Olmir Stocker ("Alemão") - electric guitar
"Alemão" is almost an living legend on the brazilian jazz arena. He has recorded 12 cd's as a soloist, and he has played on international jazz festivals in more than 15 countries. He is still touring, as well as he is a busy teacher making guitar-workshops nearly all over the world.
