Brazilian Bassist Marcos Milagres releases his first album as a leader. The album is called "Feira" (Street market). As the name suggests, the music portraits a mix of scents and colors from great Brazilian masters like Hermeto, Gismonti, Jobim and its interaction with jazz improvisation and the rhythms and sounds of the American continents. His electric bass performance is pushed to its boundaries, doing melodies, grooves, harmonies, many times all together, using an arsenal of techniques he has developed over the years. Impressive solos and improvisation are waiting in each corner, performed by himself and several invited "Cats" like Giovanni Figueroa (Mexico), Fernando Acosta (Cuba) and Humberto Mirabelli (Brazil). Although the Brazilian heritage is obviously present, the album breathe the winds of all the american continents.
