While playing with his band at Rock in Rio Cafe, Pescara was discovered by Arnaldo DeSouteiro in 1998, and was hired by Dom Um Romao as bassist for his group in 1999. Pescara also took part in an all-star benefit project ("Street Angels") for the London-based Bongo label, playing on tracks led by Luiz Bonfa, Pingarilho, and Ithamara Koorax.
In his Grooves in the Temple album, recorded over four years in Rio and New York, he is backed by living legends of the Brazillian jazz scene (musicians who have played with Weather Report, Frank Sinatra, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Sergio Mendes, Chicago, Joe Cocker, and Chick Corea). Pescara has been compared to bass legend Jaco Pastorius by more than one reviewer.
Here’s what he says about his Mobius Megatar ToneWeaver --
"With Megatar ToneWeaver I've found a whole new world in front of me. A huge range of tones and sound possibilities. My inner search is easier from now on. Ten fingers, twelve strings, and a thousand tones. Megatar & I ... a true dream!"
In addition to his busy performing, recording, and touring schedule, Pescara has also written several books on bass and bass technique, and regularly contributes articles (including one about Mobius Megatar) for Cover Baixo magazine.
