In a work meeting at Franca – SP (Brazil), a friendship has blossom between two very important musicians in the national and international scenario; Chico Oliveira and Diego Figueiredo. What started as a friendship transformed into a musical partnership/collaboration at “Casa do Jazz (House Of Jazz)“ held by Sesc, when the willing to record an album filled with songs that “the heart wants to play” emerged. The result is the album “Duô” that is an unexpected lineup of Diego Figueiredo playing the guitar and Chico Oliveira playing the trumpet and flugelhorn, gathering classic songs from many genres and origins.
