It’s been three years since we released “Forrozêra”, but our creative evolution did not stop at that moment in time. We’ve continued to write and perform new music. Now it’s time to document what we’ve been up to and share it with the world. This new project, tentatively called “The King of Bainbridge Street” is shaping up to be our most ambitious one yet and we’d like you to come along for the ride.
We tracked the record at King Electric Recording in Austin, Texas in June, 2018. The original Mente Clara Austin crew, (Brian Donohoe, Daniel Durham, Jan Flemming, Aaron Parks, Owen Summers, and Bruno Vinezof), were all involved, as well as new friends Matthew Maldonado and Leo Sherman. The repertoire consists of new, original tunes, as well as some never before recorded compositions by Hermeto Pascoal
We are excited to offer this preorder campaign on PledgeMusic and share the process of making this record with you. By pledging you will receive updates throughout, as well as some cool extras. Please share this project with others and thank you so much for joining us in this endeavor.
