"A native of Pernanbuco, Brasil, Duda Lucena is an
excellent guitar player and a singer with a warm
tone in the tradition of Brasil greatest singers."
✎ Wilbert Sostre (JazzTimes Magazine-USA)
"Duda Lucena, singer and composer from Recife, Brazil creates exquisite, romantic music, reminiscent of all the great Brazilian vocalists of the sixties who first introduced the rest of the world to Brazil's unique sound, but with modern freshness and originality."
✎ Marilyn M. Graham (Destino magazine-Mexico)
"This live quartet release from Brazilian guitarist/vocalist
Duda Lucena is an enthralling ride through a lush landscape of bossa nova, samba and baião with American jazz
sensibilities. Performing six classics, handpicked from the
songbooks of legendary Brazilian composers, as well as a
Lucena original, the ensemble produces a tightly focused
sound, propelled by the ebb and ow of emotion and
serene romanticism heard in Lucena's voice."
✎ John Barron (The Jazz Word - USA)
"Lucena’s superb vocals, as well as his true talent on Latin (specially Brazilian) guitar will bring back many pleasant mem'ries (or make new ones, if you haven’t heard the tunes
before). I especially enjoyed the guitar on 'Sol'."
