Beginning in the mid 90s when he went on a 2 1/2 yr walk-about, playing with bands and artists from Tijuana to Buenos Aires. During this time Dexter visited Brazil for 10 months, where he recorded with samba icon Beth Carvalho, and where met the late Gaudencio Thiago de Mello, composer/percussionist who in early life had coached soccer legend Garincha, with a championship Botafogo, Rio de Janeiro team. It was there he recorded his first instrumental album as lead solo voice, with Thiago and composer guitarist, Antonio Mello.

Four recordings with Thiago de Mello later, then Pra Você, this time with the Quintet, a group of amazing players, which garnered a 4 star review in DownBeat Magazine.

Scroll back up for the Quintet’s latest:   “Jazz For All”   by the same group, plus a taste of vocal magic by Elena Camerin Young. Made possible, in part, by a grant from Pathways to Jazz.
