António Zambujo is revolutionizing Fado with amazing finesse. With a rustling clarinet and cavaquinho here and there, his velvety voice sparkles across the sensual music on this new album dominated by the guitar and led by the contrabass of Ricardo Cruz, Zambujo’s faithful producer. His last album Quinto reflects cozy light and cool jazz mixed with soft Bossa. More than ever considered the guarantor of a tradition and an innovative pioneer, Zambujo is as much an heir to Amália Rodrigues as he is to Chet Baker and João Gilberto. For the great public of his growing number of fans… Quinto after 70 weeks in the Top 10, is no #1 in Portugal and Platinium Album.
