Paco Reinaldet

Paco Reinaldet born in Campo Grande, and after living for a while in the capital of Brazil, Brasilia, he moved to São Paulo, where study music and worked as a gigging musician, playing from blues-jazz to the erudite, as a way of survival. At that time, he was immersed in São Paulo's bohemian music scene, participating in several music projects. ​ In 2000 he went to Rio de Janeiro in an attempt to start an authorial musical career. Been unsuccessful, persisted in his choice of music by going to live in Lima-Peru, learning Latin music. Years later, he went to Wales-UK to study and play.

Paco devoted his time to refining the instrument timbre and also embracing “indeterminism” as an integral part of his songwriting process. He explored the silence, raised the noise to the status of music, and, despite not liking labels, he considers himself a contemporary composer thus, consolidating his own style.


“STRONG MELODIC FUNDAMENTALS” ”The strongly melodic motifs sometimes hide the harmonious and rhythmic changes he uses, but that is precisely what establishes Paco Reinaldet more than a musician, an artist. -Shaun Dale - Jazz Review Magazine

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
