Beto Braga on SoundBetter

I will create improvised solos and background lines, or record your written parts. Short deadlines are welcome. I am confortable with jazz, R&B, folk/acoustic and world music and will be glad to contribute to your project.

One of the songs on my first EP ("Danae") was included on two Spotify editorial playlists ("Jazz Brasileiro" and "Jazz Relax").

Check out my playlists on Spotify for more samples of my playing. Thank you!

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.

    Such a pleasure working with Beto, he captures the mood & feel perfectly and brings so much life to the tracks we work on. The slight variations in the harmony phrasing add so much possibility. I prefer phrasing slightly behind the beat and his interpretation does not disappoint, just stellar musicianship all around.

    Fast, clear communication and turn-around
    Great file management
    Excellent recording quality

    Beto is a real pro who is great to work with and turns things around real fast. Most importantly he delivers big on sound with every track to take them to the next level Absolutely loved working with Beto and looking forward to more tracks with his playing!

    Not only did I get what I came for, but working with Beto has been a classic case of getting "what I didn't know I wanted." Brilliant stuff! It won't be the last time :)

    Beto's sensitive playing fitted with the arrangement and vision that I had for the two songs. Responsive and eager to work on the project.

    Great tone and musical expression
    I also needed a revision on a track in relative minor and Beto did that...
    On time and expert execution...

    Beto promptly supplied the Baritone track. There was a misunderstanding in a small area of the score and he promptly sent a revision. I'm happy with the results.

    I knew what I wanted and wanted it right now but it didn't happen that way. I was taught a valuable lesson. Good things come to those who wait. I have what I want and I'm very satisfied. Thank you Beto!
