Fabiano do Nascimento performs solo and in tandem with a small combo in a special set for NPR’s Tiny Desk (Home) Concert series, featuring compositions from his various Now-Again albums.
Words on Fabino’s Tiny Desk (Home) Concert by NPR’s Abby O’Neil:
The seraphic sounds by Brazil-born, L.A.-based guitarist Fabiano do Nascimento are hypnotic and transcendent, an amalgamation of Afro-Brazilian jazz, folklore, bossanova and samba.

The Brazilian guitarist’s third album for Now-Again, featuring 10 original compositions. Shades of Baden Powell, Hermeto Pascoal, Carioca, Tenorio Jr., Rosinha de Valença.

Produced by Mario Caldato, Jr. and Luther Russell and engineered and mixed by Caldato and Jason Hiller, this album features do Nascimento’s longtime drummer Ricardo “Tiki” Pasillas. (more…)
Renowned for its enviable combination of musical muscle and malleability, guitarist/songwriter Raymond Alexander Jenkins’ tight four-piece unit was so revered on the uptown club circuit that it was offered the opportunity to serve as the Apollo Theater house band. Jenkins demurred, hopeful and confident in his group’s chances at making it on its own, and Let’s Talk is the sublime result of their hard work. (more…)
If you’re looking for something to take up 30 minutes of your time and you’ve already rewatched, with bemused horror, everything about that guy and his tigers, then dig into a summery Sweet Funk primer with Egon’s mix, now up at Spotify. It’s a live mix of tracks from our Loving On The Flipside anthology and related music, some of which hasn’t made it up on to digital distribution services, and some of which we’ve been trying to get sorted out for reissue for some time.
