Recorded in Sao Paulo, Bruno Mangueira’s first CD features some of the best musicians in Brazil. The program is drawn almost entirely from Bruno’s original repertoire, was produced and arranged by him, and includes big band and orchestral tracks. "In addition to being an inspired and talented composer, he proves to be a fine, full-fledged arranger who explores Brazilian and jazz genres in various settings. His orchestration skills are particularly noteworthy. His solos are melodic and, when necessary, can be both quite technical and uninhibited, demonstrating his solid musical foundation, maturity and versatility" (liner notes by Roberto Menescal). The CD was released at the television show Instrumental SESC Brasil (SescTV), which was recorded live in Sao Paulo in January, 2010. It was also released at concerts in New York City and at the Santa Tereza International Jazz and Bossa Fest, and was pre-selected for the Brazilian Music Award.
