Australian music media staple Forte has given Salvador its resounding approval in a recent feature article celebrating the release. Editor Talia Rinaldo writes:

The melting pot of South American, jazz, blues and roots influences that Rudd has stirred over the last few years is poured out in completely new ways on this release and is a testament to Rudd’s growth as an artist. Yet the familiar taste of everything Maximillian Rudd has given us before still lingers long after, in the best possible way.

Track 1 Teaser 🔈Total Football ••• This samba I wrote is dedicated to my friend and teacher Doug de Vries. Doug is a leading reference on Brazilian music and we are incredibly lucky to have him here in Melbourne 🇦🇺 We had an absolute blast making this track, we laid some heavy percussion and went for the slow build. It’s an all-out brawl by the end, a big Brazilian dance party to celebrate the opening of a new album and a new chapter for my music. What a thrill to share it with you, I’m feeling pumped 🙏🏽 album out 22 April 🦥 • big hitter @alastairkerrmusic on drums and percussion, the one and only @ashahenfryflute on flute, legendary Josh Bridges on bass and cavaco • 🎛 @jordantpower 🎨 @dapcreative #whoissalvador #salvadorsophomore #guitar #violão #violao7cordas #brazilianmusic #musicabrasileira #samba #brazilianguitar #newmusic #australianmusic
