Musicians with the verve of Realcino Lima Filho, also known as Nene, will always be celebrated for the importance of their work.

Internationally known for his talent and the uniqueness of his drumming, as well as by his work as a composer, arranger and educator the 'gaucho' (a native of Rio Grande do Sul south of Brazil) naturally creates astounding ambiences in his compositions.

Throughout his career Nene has amassed countless recordings to his resume which include participations in some landmark Brazilian Music albums such as Egberto Gismonti's 'Sanfona' (1981), Hermeto Pascoal's 'Live in Montreaux' (1979), Milton Nascimento's 'Clube da Esquina 2' (1978) and Elis Regina's 'Falso Brilhante' (1976).

His first solo record 'Bugre', released in 1983, was chosen by the French magazine, Jazz Hot, as one of the top 10 albums of that year.

In 1997 his 'Suite Curral del Rey' received a Grammy nomination for Best Latin Jazz Album.

Nene, drummer with one of the most successful Brazilian Music careers; bass player Alberto Luccas and pianist Irio Jr., form "Nene Trio". As result of a modern, original and inventive encounter, they are releasing the album, "Outono", which brings 10 originals themes, all written and arranged by Nene. "Outono" stands out as the 11th album of the drummer's solo career, and the first with this new Trio lineup.

Nene is convinced of the vivid Brazilian elements of this work "It is for sure something new, to compose using sophisticated harmonies and melodies with strong elements of Brazilian rhythms. This is what Alberto, Irio and I had in mind when we made this new album".

Some important compliments are already being collected. "I was deeply impressed by the musical quality of this album. The high technical level did not hide the sensibility and beauty of the compositions that, along with the arrangements, are extremely refined" defined Mr. Dori Caymmi, one of the most important Brazilian musicians.

Celebrating more than four decades as a drummer, with eleven albums under his belt as a leader, Nene marches on writing a musical story which belongs not only to his own country but also to the rest of the world.
