Paulinho says goodbye to Chicago winter - Chicago Tribune new article
When I was chosen to play a song with Toots Thielemans on the Jazzy Christmas concert in Singapore I felt just like that, "Choosen".
It was one of the greatest moments in my musician career, for once I was in the right place at the right time. Which song will he choose? Would I be able to support the master without stepping on his toes? I did my best. I thank God for giving me the chance to be side by side with the master and to let us borrow him for 94 years, I know that God is happy to receive him back.
Rest In Peace Toots Thielemans (1922 - 2016)
An impromptu performance by Toots and Paulinho at the Jazzy Christmas concert produced by Jeremy Monteiro. Esplanade Hall of Singapore, December 08, 2008. I have never felt so humble, flattered, and grateful to be called on to play alongside a true master.
Paulinho's best seller recording realeased special for Valentine's Day.

Esther Berlanga-Ryan Review: To review an album recorded by Paulinho Garcia is to be invited into an entire Universe of fragility and beauty. I knew this when I received a phone call from Garcia’s publicist a few short weeks ago, letting me know that the artist himself had requested that a copy of his new release was sent to my doorstep, for me to listen to and dissect it as I pleased. I felt both humbled and challenged. How does one find the fair combination of words to describe utter beauty?

Up coming performance
Toby Larsen is producing an unique concert with Two For Brazil, myself on guitar and vocals and Greg Fishman on sax, flute and clarinet.
Two For Brazil is a world class touring duo since 1999, critically acclaimed "Chicago's Best Jazz Entertainer, 2001 by The Annual Chicago Music Award” and with various recordings to their name.
Here's a link to a downloadable audio of 3 songs performed live by Two For Brazil, just two weeks ago, in Evanston, IL and presented by Steve Rashid.
My last concert in L.A. was sold out well before the performance date and I'd love to play for a full house again. If you know someone in the area who’d like to see us please let them know.
I hope I will see you there.
