from his 1995 album 'Last Look', Torcuato Mariano plays this sweet mellow guitar music. Mariano was born in 1963 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. At age 14, he moved to Brazil and started learning music.
Torcuato Mariano grew up listening to South American music as well as American artists, such as Santana and Stevie Wonder. Mariano played guitar with Sergio Mendes, Ivan Lins and Gal Costa.
Mariano is a quiet talented musician, and is very well known by many big stars. He started playing jazz in the early 1990's, and released his first album 'Paradise Station'in 1993. His Brazilian flavored fusion album made him very popular in the U.S. as well as Brazil.
His success in the USA helped him quickly decide to sharpen his skills, but still stayed in Brazil. Today, Mariano is a composer, producer as well as a excellent musician.
Even though Torcuato made dozen albums, his third one 'Last Look' was the most successful. If you've noticed, 'Last Look' does have a Pat Metheny spirit embeded into it.
Another good example of Mariano's music is his song 'Paula', which's dedicated to his wife, and which sounds just as beautiful.
There have been many songsdedicated to September 11th, the day that definitely changed the world. Everyone remembers the sentiment felt on that day. That might be the reason why so many musicians compose music to express those feelings. The title song of his album 'Diário' reflects the sentiment of Torcuato Mariano personally. Torcuato says that world music is fragments, maybe out of desire for a world where there are no differences. Jazz guitar music lovers will always be interested while listening to this album.
