The list of legendary musicians the members of Trio da Paz have recorded and performed with is extensive. A sampling would include guitarist Romero Lubambo’s work with Dianne Reeves, Michael Brecker, Grover Washington, Jr. and Kathleen Battle; bassist Nilson Matta’s work with Joe Henderson, Don Pullen, Yo-Yo Ma and Paul Winter; and Grammy-nominee drummer Duduka da Fonseca’s work with Astrud Gilberto, Antonio Carlos Jobim, John Scofield and Tom Harrell. Trio da Paz as a group has recorded and performed with Charlie Byrd, Herbie Mann, Lee Konitz, Kenny Barron and Nana Vasconcelos, among others.
The Trio’s latest release, CAFÉ, includes special performances by Cesar Camargo Mariano and Grammy Award winners Dianne Reeves and Joe Lovano. Trio da Paz received this accolade from critic Howard Mandel “If North Americans hadn’t invented jazz, then surely Brazilians such as the three talented young men (in Trio da Paz) would have invented something like it.”
