Meeco - Beauty of the night (2012) Meeco - Perfume e Caricias (2010) Meeco - Amargo Mel (2009)

Again in this new album, which is now his third, the musicians come from the premier league of black American music. For his album "Beauty of the night", Meeco brought together to the studio in New York along with prominent veterans like Buster Williams, Hubert Laws, Eddie Henderson, Benny Golson, Bennie Maupin and Victor Lewis, young lions like Grammy Award winner Gregory Porter, the vibraphonist Stefon Harris and guitarist Lionel Loueke.  Added to these, some top-notch representatives of the contemporary Brazilian music scene: Eloisia, Jaques Morelenbaum, Romero Lubambo and Zé Manoel.    

The quality of the songs, perfectly polished by mastering legend Bernie Grundman sound fresh and alive. "Beauty Of The Night" is an album that expresses emotions and arouses feelings. Along with Meeco’s romantic chord progressions, we have on the album the Portuguese texts of Brazilian singer Eloisia, known from the "Nouvelle Vague" band, whose enchanting poetry complements his music so fantastically. On the new album she is, for the first time, meeting English, French and Brazilian duet partners like the legendary crooner Freddy Cole, the Salsoul legend Joe Bataan, the actress and singer Jane Birkin, the Brazilian singer Zé Manoel and the highly acclaimed young American vocalist Gregory Porter.
