It’s been a while since we’ve featured Torcuato Mariano’s music here; far too long, to be honest. But part of the reason for this oversight is that Mariano is one of the very few guitarists we play daily on our streaming station here at

So I’ve found a way to make ammends.

I’ll feature a track from Torcuato Mariano’s new album Escola Brasileira in this week’s show. Listen for ‘Black Paw’ in our second hour. It’s a Brazilian Jazz instrumental i’m sure you’ll enjoy.

New to his music? Well then, you’re in for a real treat with this Brazilian Jazzmaster.
