I'm still looking for something that thrills my senses, for wisdom, looking for beauty for a smile, the world needs it now more than never and that's the real challenge, to be able to play with that and still have fun with it. Maybe this seem like a harmless delusion, but I'll pursue it until my flame is extinguished.

Com Cazuza e @tonicosta3 interpretando Luz Negra do compositor Nelson Cavaquinho. Essa gravação aconteceu no programa da @tvglobo entitulado Chico & Caetano na década de 80. Foi de improviso, não era nem para ter acontecido… o Toni usou o violão do Chico, e enquanto o Nelson Cavaquinho passava a harmonia para ele a Beth Carvalho me deu umas dicas de fraseado, o Caju já sabia a letra e a melodia. Um momento lindo para todos nós ❤️🎼🎶

Our Story

Founded by composer and woodwind stylist Zé Luis Oliveira, who has been a professional with decades of experience featured on hundreds of recordings. Leading saxophonist in Brazil in the 1980s, Zé Luis has performed and recorded with—and arranged and composed for—many of the biggest names in Brazilian music, such as Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa, Luiz Melodia, Tania Maria and Cazuza to name a few.

The studio was designed and built by Bradshaw Leigh. A NYC resident since 1990, when he moved from his native Rio de Janeiro, Zé Luis originally got a foothold in the city working as a freelance composer. Although he specializes in flutes and saxophones, he also has a high comfort level with guitar, percussion, bass and keys. For 18 years as the owner of The Atelier Music Studio now located in Long Island City's Court Sq, Zé has been composing, producing and recording music for albums, film/TV and converging media.

Oliveira has played and recorded with Kurt Elling, Romero Lubambo, Duduka da Fonseca, Yusef Lateef, Paulo Braga, Mark Soskin, David Finck, Dom Um Romão, Dom Salvador, Mario Adnet, Maucha Adnet, Adam Rudolph, Kenny Burrell, Rolando Luna, Jorge Chicoy, Ike Stubblefield, George Porter Jr., Keith Carlock, Joel Rosemblatt, Kenny Wessel and Ralph Jones. It’s a remarkably diverse skill set that helped Zé Luis to earn credits that include work with Bebel Gilberto, Sabina Sciubba, Brazilian Girls, Ivy, Pull, Verve, Cannes Film Festival, Tribeca Film Festival, Independent Lens, Rio (directed by Carlos Saldanha), Ghosts of Girlfriends Past (directed by Mark Waters), Monster-in-Law (directed by Robert Luketic), A Raisin in the Sun (directed by Kenny Leon), Burn Notice (TV Series-creator: Matt Nix, directed by Jace Alexander), sessions for original music house Tomandandy and collaborations with the oft-synch-licensed Orba Squara. Some of those works received accolades including nominations for the Golden Globe, Grammy and the Oscar.

As a solo artist, produced the self-titled Zé Luis EP and two albums of his original compositions, Guarani Banana and Caiapó. Acclaimed in the American press, Zé Luis and his work have garnering enthusiastic coverage in DownBeat, Saxophone Journal, Rhythm and Jazziz, among many other publications. Since 2013 Zé Luis has been in the helm of producing, engineering and playing for the web series “Just Play” former “Trade Winds” a Musical Iconography of Africa and the Americas. This journey has began in New York and brought him to New Orleans, Puerto Rico, Cuba and Peru.
