Brazilian 7 String Guitar Albuns
"Daniel is now releasing his debut solo album, Carnaval de Perneta (2012, Bolacha Discos). This CD offers a different view of Brazilian Carnival and Folk music. Featuring all original material, the project showcases Daniel's compositions and arrangements, production and leadership. With a jazzy approach, including a variety of percussions, bass, a touch of trombone and occasional vocalizing, Marques creates a unique, exploding sound full of sparks." ('All about Jazz' website).
