“One of the very best performers in jazz” – Allmusic
This Rio born trumpet and flugelhorn player has been on the US jazz scene since studying at Berklee College of Music in 1970. He is known for his warm, fluid sound combining post bop and Brazilian elements. A Grammy nominee, he has recorded a dozen albums as a leader. He has worked with Herbie Mann, Charlie Rouse, Paquito D’Rivera and Dizzy Gillespie’s United Nations Orchestra. Claudio will perform a number of originals and lesser known gems from the Brazilian repertoire, as well as his Latin themed favorites.
