Maximillian Rudd has teamed up with Doug de Vries for this latest video. Doug de Vries is a leading exponent of Brazilian music and one of Australia’s most acclaimed guitarists, having played with the likes of Kate Cebrano, James Morrison and Paul Grabowsky, as well as Brazilian giants Yamandu Costa and Hermeto Pascoal. Here the new duo are kept on their toes as they tackle Visitando o Recife by Canhoto da Paraíba, recorded remotely under coronavirus restrictions.
Maximillian Rudd has released the first video in his new Table For One miniseries, produced during the covid-19 restrictions. The videos replicate the traditional roda de choro of Brazil, wherein musicians gather around a table to jam, amidst the context of a pandemic that has forced musicians to think (more) creatively. Check out the first video of Assanhado by the great Brazilian mandolinist Jacob do Bandolim.
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.
