With an almost untouchable 45 years old artistic carrier, Sérgio Godinho has become an icon capable of gathering around his songs generations of different ages, experiences and aspirations. The insurmountable lot of songs that he has written and recorded since his first record, in 1971, includes some of the major classics of the Portuguese-sang music of the last half century. In a special project that counts on the collaboration of the composer/singer, Orquestra Jazz de Matosinhos embraces the music of Sérgio Godinho with musical arrangements for unforgettable songs like “O Primeiro Dia”, “É Terça-Feira”, “Com um Brilhozinho nos Olhos”, “Cuidado com as Imitações”, “Liberdade” and “Coro das Velhas”, words and melodies that attest an enormous talent to translate universal experiences and emotions.
The invitation to Sérgio Godinho follows the work OJM has been developing in the past few years with voices coming from the most diverse musical universes, from jazz to Brazilian music, from world music to pop. After Maria Rita, Mayra Andrade and Manuela Azevedo, it is now time for one of the greatest male voices of our country, Sérgio Godinho.
