RL-387x290In 1985, Romero Lubambo came to the United States, and brought with him a new sound in Brazilian jazz guitar.

Romero’s guitar playing unites the styles and rhythms of his native Brazilian musical heritage with his fluency in the American jazz tradition to form a distinctive new sound.

From the cool, sophisticated rhythms of his native Brazil to hard bop, Romero is a guitarist who’s comfortable in any musical setting. He is an uncommonly gifted soloist and musical improviser with a steady stream of unpredictably creative musical thoughts and the virtuosity to deliver them ever so tastefully.

After arriving in New York City, Romero quickly established himself as a “first call” session and touring guitarist who was in demand not only for his authentic Brazilian sound, but also for his command with a variety of styles.

Lubambo has performed and recorded with many outstanding artists, including Dianne Reeves, Michael Brecker, Yo-Yo Ma, Kathleen Battle, Diana Krall, Herbie Mann, Wynton Marsalis, Gal Costa, Kurt Elling, Kenny Barron, Luciana Souza, Cyro Baptista, Sergio and Odair Assad, Ivan Lins, Grover Washington Jr., Vernon Reid, Flora Purim and Airto, Paquito D’Rivera, Harry Belafonte, Larry Coryell, Gato Barbieri, Leny Andrade, James Carter, Paula Robison, Dave Weckl, Jason Miles, and Cesar Camargo Mariano… among many others.

He has also established himself as a composer and performer on his own critically acclaimed recording projects as well as on those of Trio Da Paz, a Brazilian jazz trio Lubambo formed with Nilson Matta and Duduka da Fonseca.

Romero Lubambo is considered by critics to be “the best practitioner of his craft in the world today… the guitarist’s facility, creativity and energy are in a class all their own.”

Guitarist Romero Lubambo may be the best practitioner of his craft in the world today… his facility, creativity and energy are in a class all their own.

Jazziz Magazine

Romero is one of Brazilian jazz’s premier finger stylists, is the main attraction… brilliant, rhythmically inventive single-note playing.

David R. Adler

All Music

Equally facile on electric and acoustic, Lubambo has become one of the most frequently recorded guitarists in the world…

Mark Holston

Guitar Player

Romero has achieved a degree of fluency in both jazz and Brazilian idioms that’s likely the envy of most serious guitarists in both cultures.
