Renato Diz: piano; Maria Quintanilla: voice
Renato Diz and Maria Quintanilla take on eternal classics and garnish them with their irresistible touch, a touch that arises from their cultural backgrounds (Portugal and Peru) as well as the unique story behind their collaboration... Not bound by style or instrumental limitations they decided to create their debut album entirely upon completely improvised arrangements of songs that marked their musical growth during their formative years. Each song is an invitation to a journey filled with unexpected turns and in-between colors that will demand the listener's attention in every second. Masterpieces like "Strange Fruit", "Calling You", "Just The Two Of Us" and "Autumn Leaves" are rediscovered, deconstructed and rebuilt with singular twists from the ever- evolving pianism of Renato Diz and the powerfully elastic voice of Maria Quintanilla. credits released June 30, 2016 Piano - Renato Diz Voice - Maria Quintanilla Recording, Mix & Mastering - José Diogo Neves Photography - Sammy Yonjai Sohn Cover Design - Marta Soutinho Alves & Nelson Luís Recorded at Daniel Lee Concert Hall, Los Angeles, CA Mixed & Mastered in Tallinn, Estonia © 2016 W&J Productions.
