Marco Antonio da Costa, as composer, arranger and conductor, has created with the first album of the Jatoba Big Band orchestra a mixture of Brazilian music and jazzy contemporary sounds. The Brazilian music pieces are here highly vivid arranged for a masterly Big Band Orchestra using well known rhythms like Bossa Nova, Samba as well as less known rhythms like Ijexá, Partido Alto, Choro with rainforest sounds and birdlike tunes and virtuous vocals of Daniela Procopio.
