      The musicians and music was great. The sound levels were good during the actual performance, but between songs it was very difficult to hear Scott (and the man who introduced them) when he spoke into the handheld mic. The handheld mic volume was so low as to be almost inaudible. Otherwise, it was great!

Scott Feiner has walked a fascinating road from the jazz world of Manhattan to the nightlife of Rio de Janeiro. Born in New York City, and formally a guitarist, Feiner received a Bachelor of Music degree in Jazz Studies/Guitar at the Hartt School of Music in Hartford, Connecticut, where he studied with the legendary saxophonist Jackie McLean. During the early ‘90s he was a respected guitarist on the New York jazz scene, playing with some of the city’s finest musicians.

In 1999, during his first trip to Brazil, Feiner discovered the pandeiro, the percussion instrument that would become his passion and new means of musical expression. He moved to Rio de Janeiro in 2001 and after only a few years became a respected pandeirista, playing in the traditional settings of Rio.

However, it is Feiner’s innovative mixture of the pandeiro with jazz, and other genres, which has set him apart. With his “Pandeiro Jazz” project, he has helped expand the possibilities and perception of the Brazilian pandeiro worldwide, an instrument not normally spoken of in the same context with American music.

In March 2014 Feiner released his fourth album, A View From Below, which also highlights his talents as a composer. Downbeat magazine gave it 4-stars and wrote, “Precise, yet fluid, funky grooves ... a tightly locked momentum compelled by one tiny, yet mighty, drum.”

Feiner performs regularly at festivals and clubs in the US, Brazil and Europe. He is also known for being an ambassador of the pandeiro, introducing people to the instrument around the world through his workshops.
