''Diego wrote the title track, Antarctica while performing aboard a Seabourn cruise to the world's southernmost continent....the segments of this solo piece reflect the mystery and uncertainty of what was to come, the joy of stepping on Antarctica's terra firma after four days at sea, and feeling of child-like delight while watching penguins at play,''

KEN FRANCKLING, Award-Winning Jazz Journalist


Diego Figueiredo is a new star of the guitar world. He is only 39, and he has released 26 CDs, 3 DVDs, and he has playing in more than 60 countries around the world. He is winner of several important competitions like Montreux Jazz Competition, and some others. Diego Figueiredo was born in Franca, Brazil, in 1980, and at the age of 4, he used to strike poses carrying his small guitar. At six, he got a mandolin, which was kept in a very special place in his house. Diego played many instruments before choosing the electric guitar when he was twelve, playing in theaters and local pubs, revealing the great art of improvising and harmonizing. At 15, he conquered theaters and nightclubs in many different Brazilian states, playing solo or with renowned musicians.

Diego has collaborated and performed with names like Gilberto Gil, João Bosco, Roberto Menescal, Toquinho, Janis Siegel, Stanley Jordan, Joao Donato, Larry Coryell, Ken Peplowski, Lewis Nash, John Clayton, Cyrille Aimée, Jeff Hamilton, Terell Stafford, Wycliffe Gordon, Bill Cunliffe, Dick Hyman and many others.

''Diego Figueiredo is one of the greatest guitarists I've seen in my whole life. The world needs to listen to his music.''
George Benson

''I have seem and played with many wonderful guitar players like Joe Pass or Baden Powell, but no one is like Diego. His ability and swing are unique.''
Flora Purim

Press Quotes

This came out so closely behind his label debut that I almost thought the label was sending me a duplicate mailing. Once again showing what a wonderful acoustic guitarist he is, he could release an album a month and we probably wouldn't get tired of him---especially since it seems that he's mastered the art of effortless mastery. Playing with worldwide ears and apparently no need for boundaries, this set inspired by playing on an Antarctica cruise ship just nails the vibe. It might be natural to mention him in the same breath as other acoustic guitar greats, he's also in a class by himself. Killer stuff.
