Lucas Figueiredo Santana
Saxophonist Lucas Figueiredo Santana comes from Brazil (Sao Paolo, 1993) and studies at the Amsterdam Conservatory, where he is noticed by many people. He is one of the winners of Keep an Eye The Records (2020) and has just won the prestigious Downbeat Student Award 2021. Santana has since appeared on stage with great musicians such as Miguel Zenón, Dick Oatts and Seamus Blake. He has also played with the Metropole Orkest and has been selected as a member of the 2019 JM Jazz World Orchestra (the world's leading jazz orchestra for young professional musicians). It is clear that Lucas Santana is a rare talent.
Despite Corona, Santana worked hard and released his first album with his quintet. This debut album 'Reflections' is already of remarkable quality. With own pieces that sound as if a long jazz life has already preceded them. With sparkling uptempo pieces, but also beautifully intimate work.
Besides Lucas Santana on saxophone, the quintet consists of guitarist Davor Stehlik (born in Serbia and arrived in Amsterdam via a stopover in Vienna) and a solid rhythm section with pianist Jetse de Jong, bassist Thijs Klaassen and Tim Hennekes on drums.
