At 2019 I made my debut in the United States, where our work received a great reception, performing at one of the most respected jazz
clubs in the USA: https://www.shanghaijazz.com/listen/2019/1/10/brazilian-folk- guitar
where I presented a show composed only of my compositions, accompanied by two highly regarded
American jazz musicians, the brothers Jacob and Nathan Webb.

Rodrigo Nassif Trio is considered today a reference in the Brazilian instrumental music, according to material from UOL Música
We have done shows on iconic stages in Brazil like Sesc Pompeia in Sao Paulo and the respected Blue Note RJ.

“Every Day Will Be Fall” has been ranked # 1 on the iTunes Store’s # 1 bestseller in the “Instrumental” category (https://goo.gl/A5gbQt). We also participated in the project considered a reference of instrumental music in SP, the Sesc Consolação Instrumental Sesc Brasil, which provided us with a documentary about our compositions and a show recorded in HD with mixed and mastered sound:

At the time of release, the album also featured on several top lists of the year. Interestingly, many of these lists are intended for pop albums, not classical or instrumental. But the album appears in the list of sites such as The Best of Brazilian Music of Embrulhador (https://goo.gl/IVGefZ), maintained by the respected journalist Ed Felix. It is noteworthy that the release show for “Every Day Will Fall” was a sold-out presentation at the São Pedro Theater in Porto Alegre (https://goo.gl/7usVun).
Before the quartet he had 3 solo albums released – Rodrigo Nassif (2008), Fronteira (2010) and O Pulo do Gato (2011) – and was the winner of the Açorianos Award in the category Best Instrumental Interpreter. With the second and third albums received very complimentary reviews in Bravo magazine! and also on Guitar PRO.
