"Costa's melodic sensibility shines throughout"

DownBeat Magazine

Praised for melodic sensibility by DownBeat Magazine, Dan Costa is a jazz/ world music pianist, composer and producer who has collaborated with artists such as Randy Brecker, John Patitucci, Mike Stern, Hermeto Pascoal, Dave Douglas, Ivan Lins, Leila Pinheiro, Seamus Blake, Jaques Morelenbaum and Roberto Menescal.

Costa studied classical and jazz piano at the Académie de Musique Rainier III and popular music at Paul McCartney’s LIPA. He graduated in jazz piano at ESMAE with a Rotary Club award for outstanding achievement and studied Brazilian music at UNICAMP in São Paulo as part of an exchange programme. He later pursued further studies at Berklee College of Music with a merit-based scholarship. He released his first album Suite Três Rios in 2016, considered one of the best albums of the year by Down Beat Magazine. His second album Skyness was deemed “rare and luxurious” by All About Jazz, while Live in California, his solo piano album released in 2020 was praised for “profound expression” by Jazziz Magazine. He also recorded two singles – the well-known standard Love Dance with one of its creators, Ivan Lins, and Iremia, with Randy Brecker, as a message of peace. He has just recorded his new album "Beams" in New York City, featuring John Patitucci, Dave Liebman, Mike Stern, Hermeto Pascoal, Dave Douglas and other artists.
