“a true musical journey with a mesmerizing concept” – Jazz Corner
Brazilian bassist Marcelo Maccagnan has established himself as an exciting bandleader and in-demand sideman on the New York scene.
Growing up playing a whole 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.
After graduating, Marcelo moved to NYC to further pursue his musical goals. He has refined a truly authentic fusion of sounds which, whilst modern and electric, never loses sight of the improvisation and communication central to jazz.
His 2nd 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.
Marcelo currently performs with his band or as a solo performer with loops and vocals playing originals and covers with a twist!
