Ricardo Bacelar - Congênito – Jasmin Music

Brazilian pianist, vocalist, composer, and arranger Ricardo Bacelar releases a new album entitled Congênito. The full album represents a departure from his previous recordings and features Bacelar as the project’s sole producer, vocalist, arranger, and instrumentalist. They are being released on his record label Jasmin Music. The release of Congênito marks the launch of Bacelar’s fifth solo album and is a significant accomplishment for him as he recorded, produced, and played all of the instruments on the recording exclusively. For Bacelar, it is the first solo album he created this way. He spent considerable time researching proper recording technologies, planning and writing many arrangements and determining the most suitable instruments to feature. On his full album Congênito, Bacelar reimagines classic Brazilian music composed by numerous legendary Brazilian masters including Chico Buarque, Gilberto Gil, Caetano Veloso, Djavan, Ivan Lins, Lenine, and others. With the exception of two songs in English, all of the songs are in Portuguese.
