André Mehmari is considered one of the most talented and active Brazilian musicians of his generation. His activities as a pianist, composer, and arranger are highly recognized in both popular and classical music. His career in jazz and Brazilian popular music has garnered significant attention with performances at all major jazz festivals in Brazil and abroad, including seven appearances in Japan, Europe at the Umbria Jazz Festival in Italy, and Juan Les-Pins in France, as well as in the United States at the Kennedy Center and Lincoln Center, where one of his compositions premiered at Carnegie Hall.

The songs were entirely recorded in a single session, resulting in two volumes, practically without breaks between takes, without edits or cuts. André Mehmari shares a bit of the concept behind the album: “The flow of musical consciousness generates a narrative of sounds, textures, and ideas. Here, I present these little stories in solo piano, wordless tales that unfold through sounds. The improvisations are presented in this album in alphabetical order, without editing or cutting. The names given to each one were thought up by me and defined a posteriori, without having any influence on the act of spontaneous creation”.

Short Stories Without Words Vol. II was recorded in discrete surround 5.0 channels at Estúdio Monteverdi in January 2024 by Gustavo Cândido, using Schoeps and DPA microphones, Merging Technologies HAPI MKII Premium converters, Reaper and Pyramix DAWs on Ravenna AoIP, and Dynaudio Contours S series speakers for surround monitoring in the ADS mastering room.
