USA/BRAZIL: Sergio Pereira-Swingando (2016)
Composer, songwriter, arranger and guitarist Sergio Pereira brings to you Swingando. The Album is an expression of growing up in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in the 60’s and 70’s with a fresh sound of today’s Brazilian Jazz. The songs will take you on a journey of various Brazilian moods; from sipping a ‘Caipirinha’ by the quiet sunset of Leblon Beach to the powerful rhythms of modern Jazz Bossa.
Recorded in New York City and Sao Paulo (Brazil), the album includes world-class musicians such as Marcus Teixeira, Helio Alves, Nilson Matta, Mauricio Zottarelli, Duduka da Fonseca, Claudia Villela, Itaiguara Brandao, Felipe Silveira, Osmario Marinho, Felipe Fidelis, Olivia Foschi and Candida Borges
