I remember very well when Philippe and his mother Silvia first came to see me recommended by Paulo Jobim with whom I had produced Symphonic Jobim.

We became “old friends” immediately and I told them about the strong impression I’ve had, as a boy, when introduced to Baden’s music by my godfather.

Baden was my first idol. Through his guitar I met for the first time the music of a lot of people like Bach, Tom Jobim and Moacir Santos. Baden was the first artist to record those different tunes called “Coisas” that his teacher Moacir showed him during the private classes of “superior music” as himself used to say. Moacir Santos was the one to teach Baden the Greek modes which inspired him so much to compose the Afrosambas.

After dedicating some years to Moacir Santos’s work and producing – along with Zé Nogueira – works like Ouro Negro and Choros & Alegria – I felt that I could also translate into music some of the strong connections between Baden and Moacir. That’s how the idea were born and was named by my talented partner Philippe as Afrosambajazz that I dedicate not only to Baden but also to Moacir.

Mario Adnet

“That’s the man !” It was how my father referred to Mario Adnet after being interviewed by him for a newspaper article. Baden was impressed and excited  about that meeting and it seemed that he had found someone to exchange ideas. He wrote down his phone number on a music sheet and made me understand that I could call him any time I would feel like. After that I don’t remember how I got Mario’s album Para Gershwin & Jobim   and  understood why my dad felt so connected. Some years later I felt a strong desire to pay homage to my father and his music and decided to call that guy. Afrosambajazz is our first partnership. It’s an instrumental concept of Baden’s work inspired by the Afrosambas and by all Afro-Brazilian cultural heritage. We selected tunes of the partnership with Vinicius de Moraes and Paulo Cesar Pinheiro and Baden’s solo tunes. Some of the lead sheets were carefully stored for many years. From the never released material were unveiled songs like Yansan’s Chant written with the poet lyricist from Salvador, Ildasio Tavares. To accomplish this project was a fantastic experience that I’d like to repeat very soon.
