Famous for his double platinum albums Tempo and Momento and for his triple platinum recording Viagens, this Portuguese singer and songwriter also had a career as a music producer and music teacher. In the latter capacity, he helped establish the Jazz School of Porto, Portugal.
After training at the Ruvina Music School, he attended the Conservatorio de Musica do Porto.
He earned a Madrid Film Festival Best Soundtrack Award for his work on the film Novo Mundo.
Born and raised in Porto, Portugal, he largely shielded his personal life from the public eye, both literally -- he always wore sunglasses when appearing in public -- and figuratively.
He appeared as himself in the 1999, Manoel de Oliveira-directed feature, La Lettre.
