This São Paulo group were introduced by the second Sampa Jazz Fest and founded by two musicians in December 2005: saxophonist Daniel Nogueira and bassist Vinicius Pereira. They came into contact with music by the maestro Moacir Santos in 2001 and wanted to put together a big band to perform his pieces among others. The 12-musician Coisa Fina project strives to showcase the maestro's music in Brazil and France on the Vienne Theatre stage.
