about

Renato Diz and Maria Quintanilla take on eternal classics and garnish them with their irresistible touch, a touch that arises from their cultural backgrounds (Portugal and Peru) as well as the unique story behind their collaboration...
Not bound by style or instrumental limitations they decided to create their debut album entirely upon completely improvised arrangements of songs that marked their musical growth during their formative years.
Each song is an invitation to a journey filled with unexpected turns and in-between colors that will demand the listener's attention in every second.
Masterpieces like "Strange Fruit", "Calling You", "Just The Two Of Us" and "Autumn Leaves" are rediscovered, deconstructed and rebuilt with singular twists from the ever-evolving pianism of Renato Diz and the powerfully elastic voice of Maria Quintanilla.

Track Name: The Nearness of Georgia
(Lyrics according to the arrangement)

It's not the pale moon that excites me
That thrills and delights me, oh no
It's just the nearness of you

It isn't your sweet conversation
That brings this sensation, oh no
It's just the nearness of you

Other arms reach out to me
Other eyes smile tenderly
Still in peaceful dreams I see
The road leads back to you

It's not the pale moon that excites me
That thrills and delights me, oh no
It's just the nearness of you
Track Name: Autumn Leaves
(Lyrics according to the arrangement)

The falling leaves
Drift by my window
The falling leaves
Of red and gold

I see your lips
The summer kisses
The sunburned hands
I used to hold

Since you went away
The days grow long
And soon I'll hear
Old winter's song

But I miss you most of all
My darling
When autumn leaves
Start to fall
Track Name: Strange Fruit
Southern trees bear a strange fruit
Blood on the leaves and blood at the root
Black bodies swingin' in the Southern breeze
Strange fruit hangin' from the poplar trees

Pastoral scene of the gallant South
The bulgin' eyes and the twisted mouth
Scent of magnolias sweet and fresh
Then the sudden smell of burnin' flesh

Here is a fruit for the crows to pluck
For the rain to gather, for the wind to suck
For the sun to rot, for the tree to drop
Here is a strange and bitter crop
Track Name: Just The Two Of Us
I see the crystal raindrops fall
And the beauty of it all
Is when the sun comes shining through
To make those rainbows in my mind
When I think of you sometime
And I want to spend some time with you

Just the two of us
We can make it if we try
Just the two of us (Just the two of us)
Just the two of us
Building castles in the sky
Just the two of us
You and I

We look for love no time for tears
Wasted water's all that is
And it don't make no flowers grow
Good things might come to those who wait
Not for those who wait too late
We gotta go for all we know

Just the two of us
We can make it if we try
Just the two of us (Just the two of us)
Just the two of us
Building castles in the sky
Just the two of us
You and I
Track Name: Master Blaster
Everyone's feeling pretty
It's hotter than July
Though the world is full of problems
They couldn't touch us even if they tried
From the park I hear rhythms
Marley's hot on the box
Tonight there will be a party
On the corner at the end of the block

Didn't know you
Would be jammin' until the break of dawn
I bet nobody ever told you that you
would be jammin' until the break of dawn
You would be jammin' and jammin' and jammin', jam on

They want us to join their fighting
But our answer today
Is to let all our worries
Like the breeze through our fingers slip away
Peace has come to Zimbabwe
Third World's right on the one
Now's the time for celebration
'Cause we've only just begun

Didn't know that you
Would be jammin' until the break of dawn
Bet you nobody ever told you that you
Would be jammin' until the break of dawn
You would be jammin' and jammin' and jammin', jam on
Track Name: Calling You
A desert road from Vegas to nowhere
Some place better than where you've been
A coffee machine that needs some fixing
In a little cafe just around the bend

I am calling you
I am calling you

A hot dry wind blows right thru me
Your baby's crying and I can't sleep
But we all know a change is coming
Coming closer sweet release

I am calling you
I am calling you
