The first recorded CD “Walk the Walk”, was released when Tito was twelve years old. Tito has experience as a live performer and studio musician and maintains a steady schedule both in the U.S. and abroad. The newest CD project The Sun Stood Still, was released in July 2011 and the beginning of a new project called The Tim And Tito Pascoal band again accompanied by world-renowned musicians such as Richard Bona, Evan Marien, Russell Ferrante, Tom Kennedy, among others.

”O.k., I opened the CD case, plopped in the CD and proceeded to listen with measured interest to some really exquisitely diverse jazz. I didn’t bother to read the bio or liner notes on this one first, as I normally do. I was just going to groove on some new music and get down to the review later. Then, I noticed something very interesting about the drumming. This cat was handling all types of timing patterns with incredible ease. I chalked it up to years of experience. Then, I decided to read the bio and liner notes. That’s when I discovered that I had been listening to a 12-year-old! Thus is the case with Tito Pascoal-a 12- year-old Portuguese young man with a really powerful passion for jazz, and, boy, does it ever show.” -Ronald Jackson-Jazz Review
