FFJN April 7: Marcelo Bucater

Highlighting my newest friend who will be joining me on April 7, at Lyd & Mo’s, this is Marcelo Bucater. We just met this January and keep discovering that we’ve got more and more great musicians in common. I’m excited that he’s bringing his trio to our First Fridays Jazz Night. I’ll let his bio tell you the rest:

Marcelo Bucater (@marcelobucater) is a drummer/percussionist and educator from São Paulo – Brazil based in Los Angeles since 2013.

Currently, part of the Drum Faculty at Los Angeles College of Music (LACM) and the California College of Music (CCM) teaching private and group lessons.

Marcelo has worked as a session and touring musician for several years, recording and performing live with different artists. His versatility as a drummer and percussionist lead to performances accompanying artists of different genres all over the world.

He has produced, recorded and performed with independent artists and renowned musicians such as Carrie Underwood for the 51st ACM Award, Adam Levy (Norah Jones), Darek Oles (Pat Metheny), Scott Henderson (Chick Corea), Philip Bynoe (Steve Vai), John Avila (Oingo Boingo), Gemini (Justin Bieber), Natalia Spadini, Andrew Murdock (Linking Park), Tinto Tango, Koobang Ensemble, Duques, and Phat Cat Swinger just to name a few.

Some of his music projects include the Press Award 2020 Finalist group Little Brazil Trio – which made it to the 20th Annual Latin Grammy Awards ballot in five categories and was a finalist at the 24th Annual USA Songwriting Competition with the original song “Vem”.

His passion for music and his craft is shown in his great feel and rock-solid support for the music and his warmhearted personality.
