Dear Jatobá Big Band Friends and Backers:

We are very happy to announce that the first goodies from our campaign are being already given/payed! :D

Little bit more than 1 week ago Marco Antonio da Costa played the first «Goodie - Living Room Concert» - for one of the supporters of our campaign. Now we are working relentlessly to make the album ready to be released as soon as possible! Our album-cover»is almost ready and so is all the copyrights-arrangements. We set up a deal with the jazz label from Switzerland - Unit Records and we have already 1 date in schedule for the release concert - will be announced soon.

You, who supported our - We Make It campaign, can get in touch with us anytime you want - via We Make it, Facebook or Instagram - to arrange when and how the specific Goodies will be given to you (Lessons, Workshops, Private Dinner with music, Living Room Concert or Trio Concert). The «Signed albums/Mp3 Goodies/Album with Scores» need still time to be given away because the publishing/copyrights part takes a little bit of time to be completed.

We wish we could give you an exact estimate about when the printed version of Marco Antonio da Costa´s «Jatobá Big Band» album will be in your hands but better let you know that estimate when the album finally be sent to print. We are working in order for it to be sent on January 2018.

Please contact us for any question or wait for our updates very soon.

Thank you very much! Muito Obrigado! Merci Beacoup! Danke Schön! We wish you a beautiful end of the year 2017 and Happy Holidays (Christmass, New Year)!

Marco and Jatobá Big Band Team

Ps: Big kisses for the the 2 beautiful persons sitting with me in that desk helping me out with a lot of things in this project! (Elisabeth Brunneder and Henrique Pacheco).

We made it! Conseguimos! Wir haben es geschafft! Nous l’avons créé!

Incredible! Yuuhuuuuu! Yes!

With your support we will be able to realize this project, Jatobá Big Band team wants to say: Thank you very much! While today it is a day to celebrate, we don´t want to loose time and tomorrow we will continue to work to make this project reach it´s completion.

The next steps are: making the graphic design of the album-cover ready, all the necessary publishing details, copyrights contracts, label contracts and, finally, send it to print! After we have the product on our hands, you, our backers, will be the first people to get their hands/ears/eyes into the album «Jatobá Big Band».

Note from Marco Antonio da Costa:

This is the most challenging project that i ever managed! I can´t wait to see the results of such a dedicated work. We are not yet 100% ready but, to get this far, would not have been possible without the support of:

  • my family, from Brazil, Peru, France and Austria (yes i have a big family spread around the world), especially my parents with their precious support.
  • The musicians of Jatobá Big Band, their great team work and musicianship.
  • The recording crew.
  • The filming crew.
  • The team which worked with me closely at the organization level (hard working!): Rosa, Nik, Andi, Elisabeth, Henrique, Babi.
  • The french/english translation crew: Fefi, Cinara, Rob
  • The institutions that financed a part of the Project: Land Steiermark, SKE Fonds, ÖH Kunstuni Graz, Kunstuniversität Graz.
  • «We Make It» for their very professional platform.
  • All the friends/backers of this project through this campaign: YOU!

I am so happy that my dream will soon come true: to have my own compositions and arrangements published in a beautiful way, played by a great band. For now I will leave you with my best regards, and say to you that you may still follow every step of the completion of this project via my website (www.dacostamusic.com), the Jatobá Big Band Facebook page and Instagram. All feedback/ideas along the way are welcome.

Thanks again,

Marco Antonio da Costa

Thank you, Merci, Obrigado, Danke!

Dear friends and backers, we are extremely grateful for your support, with your help, we reached today the mark of a little bit more than 1/3 of our goal! Wow, i have to be honest, i feel a little bit relieved, because i can allow myself to have this important feeling: gratitude! The feeling that states that our last months of hard work will be compensated when this beautiful project will be finally realized and the album «Jatobá Big Band», released…

There is still a lot of work to be done from our side and we are 100% involved in this campaign to bring the word to the biggest number possible of people who may share/support our vision: the show must continue!
