Called by jazz guitar master George Benson, “One of the greatest guitarists I’ve seen in my whole life,” the Brazilian guitar wizard Diego Figueiredo is a force to be recognized. Acclaimed by the critics as the newest discovery in the guitar world, Figueiredo has made a massive impression in the contemporary jazz world. He received awards twice at the Montreux Jazz Festival, performing amazing concerts uniting technique and emotion in a fusion of Brazilian music and jazz.

Based in St. Petersburg, Florida, O Som Do Jazz features Rio de Janeiro singer Andrea Moraes Manson and a crew of experienced musicians performing Brazilian jazz, Bossa Nova, samba, samba, Balanço and MPB.  O Som Do Jazz (the sound of jazz in Portuguese) recaptures the grace, energy and spirit of 1960s Brazilian music. Heralded as the best Brazilian band in Florida, the music of O Som Do Jazz has been featured in HBO’s series “Looking”, Fox “Grandfathered” and in Chinese and Turkish bossa nova compilations.
