Brazilian bassist Marcelo Maccagnan has established himself as an exciting bandleader and in-demand sideman on the New York scene. Having grown up playing a vast range of styles – rock, electronic music, Brazilian, pop – he first moved to Boston to study jazz at Berklee College of Music where he got the chance to perform with big names such as Kenny Werner and Tigran Hamsyan.
Three years and two albums later, he has refined a truly authentic fusion of sounds such as jazz, Brazilian music, and progressive rock, which, whilst modern and electric, never loses sight of the improvisation and communication central to jazz. His second album “Boundless” features Andrew Cheng on Guitar and Kelvin Andreas on Drums, exploring a mix of styles from Pat Metheny and Donny McCaslin to Radiohead and Mahavishnu Orchestra.
For Fans Of: Allan Holdworth, Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea & Pat Metheny.
Our Thoughts: Monster musicianship and pitch-perfect vocals make “Creature of Habit” a fantastic song blending Jazz and Prog Rock. Maccagnan is not only a strong composer,
but he’s also a virtuoso bassist. This is serious music created by real professionals.
