Bio

Glauco Lima’s special musical talent flourished at his very early age. He used to hum along with his mother on her lullabies even before speaking, says her. As a result, he began playing professionally in his adolescence and has been doing so ever since.

 

 

Now, with more than twenty years of experience as a live performer, studio musician and producer, bandleader, singer, and composer, he had the opportunity to perform at some highly prestigious venues such as The NY Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Fondazione Siena Jazz - Italy (Accademia Nazionale del Jazz), Un Tubo Jazz Club - Italy, Shanghai Jazz Club, Blue Note Jazz NYC, Zinc Bar NYC, and others.

 

The following are some of the artists and musicians Mr. Lima had the pleasure to work with: Romina Capitani, Todd Coolman, Danna Talley, Margrit Zimmerman, James Czeiner, Alvin Slaughter, Ron Kenoly, Billy Newman, Jon Werking, Paul Bollenback, Count Basie’s band member Dennis Mackrel, Art Blakey’s band member Javon Jackson, Rogerio Boccato, João Mota, Zé Luis, Alexandre Aposan, Itaiguara Brandão, Eduardo Belo, Leco Reis, Paulo Siqueira, João Alexandre, Livio Almeida, Adriano Santos, Monika Oliveira, Davi Sacer, Jamba Castro, Eli Menezes, Edward Perez, John Cooksey, Doug Epstein, the award-winning John Patitucci, and many more. One of his most recent appearances was at the Blue Note Jazz New York with Shari Pine, Steve Doyle, and Andrew Pastorino.

 

 

Glauco Lima is constantly searching for new possibilities, new sonorities, and ways of expressing art through music. This concept led him to create his last album entitled Once Upon a Time. It's an instrumental project consisted mostly of original compositions with some great covers. Moreover, it is also part of an original story written by him, which develops along with the songs. It is an enjoyable and worth-hearing experience with lots of interesting nuances and creativity.  It has earned some great reviews from great people.
