Villa-Lobos has often been used as source material by jazz musicians - Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter, George Benson, David Sánchez, Kenny Dorham, The Modern Jazz Quartet, among others. In Brazil, jazz musicians treat Villa-Lobos tunes as standards, like the Great American Songbook. Projeto B is an excellent example of Brazilian musicians re-thinking Villa-Lobos in a jazz idiom.
"Villa-Lobos inJazz" is a project of Octavio Garcia, based, as he says, "on the deepest roots of our culture."
