It's been a while since we've featured Torcuato Mariano's music here; far too long, to be honest. But part of the reason for this oversight is that Mariano is one of the very few guitarists we play every day on our streaming station. And with good reason. New to his music? Well then, you're in for a real treat with this Brazilian Jazzmaster. More on Torcuato after these imporant talking points:

My Producer's Notes

Listen to The Sounds of Brazil every three hours beginning at 6am Central Time daily.


Several years ago, I was boarding a late-evening shuttle flight from Sao Paulo to Rio when I heard someone shout “Scott Adams!”. It was Torcuato Mariano. That’s the way it sometimes is with friends, especially musical ones.

We’ve all enjoyed guitarist Torcuato Mariano’s music for more than two decades now, and in that time we’ve witnessed his steady evolution to become one of Brazil’s best jazz guitarists, as well as a leading voice of Brazil’s music scene.  Starting out first with Nara Leao’ then Marina Lima and then as Leo Gandelman’s strummer, he went on to play with Djavan and Gal Costa before releasing his debut CD ‘Paradise Station’ in 1993.

‘Last Look’ followed two years later to give us great songs like ‘Ocean Way’ before Torcuato stepped away from the studio to become a top producer and talent scout, earning him the Sharp ‘Premio’ award before releasing ‘Diary’ in 2004.

It’s difficult not to use superlatives when it comes to Mariano’s music – his sense of melody and improvisation is nothing if not impressive and his songwriting skills ably transform his visions into memorable songs. Equally at home with electric or acoustic instruments, Torcuato’s dexterous play easily erases any notion that his talent is one-dimensional: The Argentine-born player is as comfortable with blazing rock lines and he is with an elegant Jobim Bossa.

In most industries (but especially in the music biz) talent, success and experience tend to promote individuals beyond their original roles, and if you were to ask him, Torcuato would tell you that he misses playing and performing. And even though his growing responsibilities as Music Director with ‘The Voice – Brasil’ continue to pace the TV show’s immense popularity there, he gladly made time to record a new song specifically for this week’s show. You’ll hear it at the beginning of our second hour.

‘Make Me Stay’ features Deborah Cidrack (a ‘Voice’ contestant from season two) as vocalist and lyricist. You might be surprised to learn that she grew up in the far northeastern city of Fortaleza.

Truth be told, The Sounds of Brazil was the first to play ‘Paradise Station’ in the USA, and Torcuato’s immediate popularity forced Windham Hill Records to rush the release of the CD ahead of schedule. I recall that the label wasn’t too happy about it at the time, but I was asked to write the liner notes for that album, and also for ‘Last Look’ two years later. That album gave us ‘Ocean Way’, voted by fans as the most popular song ever played on our radio show.

Beyond his music, big hugs and big smiles are what I always think of with Torcuato Mariano. These are part and parcel of the music he creates. Something to anticipate, something to appreciate.

I hope you enjoy the show this week!
