ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Note From the Composer

I felt a great desire to pour myself out to the listener and the world. I have so many sounds inside of me and I do not want to hold back. I explore the heavenly realms as much as I can and combine the abundance of color, textures, harmonies and melodies into the earthly realm. I am a painter in heaven and a musician on earth. This work is coming deep from my heart to touch your life. A God given task to spread the love and joy through this wonderful artform called Music It is not about genre at all. Simply an expression of intense waves of glory towards you!



The vibrant and joyful music of Luiz Santos, a worldwide artist from New York City USA, will make you feel alive. His brilliant mix of Brazilian rhythms, Caribbean, Chamber Music and Jazz as he plays the drums and the piano will fill your heart with hope. Simply put on one of his albums and you'll be sure to feel uplifted and encouraged. What makes the music of this world-class Brazilian drummer, percussionist, pianist and composer so unique and incredibly special? His unparalleled creativity in making music and has been doing so since his childhood.

His love of music stems from the passion for music his Brazilian parents had while growing up. They knew that as a young child of nine years old when they first heard Luiz play the drums, he had talent beyond his years. The more he played, the more he aspired to play many different rhythms.

The self-taught instrumentalist played his first professional gig at the age of 13 while living in Rio de Janeiro. Opportunities arose to play with older musicians which helped him to explore many different styles of music.

Eventually he began performing all over Brazil with well-known recording musicians such as bassist Arthur Maia, Jovino Santos, Hermeto Pascoal and many others. The passion Luiz had for music fueled him to begin composing and arranging full orchestral pieces.

He also toured extensively in Europe as part of "Brazil Fusion". His music became in high demand, enabling him to play for bands and work on music projects in several countries including Germany, France, Norway, Sweden, Holland, Belgium, Greece, Luxemburg and Italy. Listed below are a few of the many venues throughout Europe in which he has performed:

Quasimodo Berlin
Atlantis Basel
Mannheimer Feuerwache
Nefertitti Goteborg
Unterfahrt Munchen
Birdland Hamburg Fabrik

Influenced by the music of Chick Corea, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Strawinsky, Debussy, Bartok, Hermeto Pascoal, Egberto Gismonti, Keith Jarrett, Weather Report, Pat Metheny, Elvin Jones, Peter Erskine, Billy Cobham, Tony Williams, Dave Weckl and Steve Gadd, he creates unique flavors of music by combining typical jazz sounds with classical and Brazilian percussion. He has also written compositions for everything from jazz to contemporary classical, modern music to string quartets.

He has also been on demand in New York City playing with musicians like Richie Goods, Vic Juris, Tim Armacost, Peter Brendler, Russ Nolan, Sean Nowell, Helio Alves, Paul Meyers, Edward Perez, John Benitez, Hector Martignon, Mark Weinstein, Nilson Matta, and Monika Oliveira just to name a few.

Luiz has recorded several CD Projects in Rio De Janeiro, all which feature his own compositions. Other musicians on his CD projects include: Humberto Mirabelli (Guitar), Fernando Roza (Bass), Fernando Trocado (Tenor Sax and Flute), Marcelo Martins (Alto/Soprano Sax and Flute).
