Júlio Resende, Jazz pianist-
Multimedia Fado Presentation
Thursday, June 23, 2016- 7:30pm
One of the most significant forces in the new generation of Fado and Jazz musicians in Portugal Júlio Resende started playing at age four. Resende had a Classical background, but soon he found out he was not satisfied to play compositions he could not improvise over.
Júlio participated in several workshops where he worked with the best masters of the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, Berklee College of Music, and Bill Evans Academy, Hot Clube during his stay in Université Paris – VIII.
In 2006, he completed his Philosophy studies at the Faculdade de Ciências Sociais e Humanas da Universidade Nova de Lisboa. He currently teaches Jazz Piano at the Universidade de Aveiro for their Master’s degree in Jazz Music.
The intense and very relevant path through the universe of jazz led him to think improvisation about other musical genres. He arrives to Fado, where he crosses tradition with modernity and launches, from his piano, a new look about the Portuguese song. This will be a multimedia production and Júlio will be accompanying renowned Fado singers with his inimitable musical genius. Ample parking on the street- Portuguese buffet reception inc.- $150.
