One of the most requested Brazilian bassists, Celso Pixinga had his first album released in 1986 (Concentração/Celso Pixinga, 440 e Zona Sul) followed by other seven instrumental albums (quite an accomplishment, given the Brazilian market), ranging from pop to fusion with a pinch of jazz. In February 1995, Celso Pixinga performed twice at the Blue Note (New York NY). In the next year the same show was presented at the SESC São Paulo room, city in which the instrumentalist is based. His solo works have been presented also in the Madalena Jazz/Blues project, at the São Paulo Culture Center (CCSP) and in the Bourbon Street Music Club. In 1999 he accompanied Gilberto Gil, Jane Duboc and Egberto Gismonti at the Heineken Concerts and in the next year he was a member of the Brazilian band that backed up Taj Mahal in his Brazilian performances.
