Reviews

“I have had the privilege to work with Itaiguara Brandão innumerous times throughout the past two decades in a variety of different musical settings, from regular gigs in the city, to recordings and tours abroad. I’m more than happy to attest to his fantastic musicianship and irrepressible work ethic. His compositions are inspiring and very original, with a deep sense of lyricism and a gift for beautiful melodies, combining a solid knowledge of jazz and world music with the roots of Brazilian music. It is my understanding that Mr. Brandão has built a highly positive reputation for himself among his peers in New York and beyond as a top notch, extremely reliable and musically enticing bassist and all around musician. I am glad to recommend him highly and would place him at the top of his field without hesitation.”

Rodrigo Ursaia, Professor at Souza Lima Conservatory

“Itaiguara Brandao is one of the most complete musician/ producers I have ever had the pleasure to work with. Not only is his musicianship of the highest word-class calibre, but his mastery of styles and genres across the board puts him in a unique position to hear the finished product long before it takes shape. When combined with his unselfish and generous personality, encouraging nature, artists blossom under his guidance and produce their best work. I always look forward to a day in the studio with Itaiguara Brandao!"

David Darlington, 3x Grammy winner

Itaiguara is not only an incredible guitar and bass player but has a very deep knowledge of music - not only as a player but as an arranger and producer. Brazilian music, Jazz, Classical music, he knows it all. Besides that, he is a very serious professional, which makes him a very reliable asset to all sorts of working situations.”
