Album Notes
Renowned in his native Chile as one of the top bass players in the country, Marcelo is a complete musician having excelled in many fields of music since the early '80s. He studied classical guitar at the prestigious School of Modern Music in Santiago, classical double bass at the Musical Institute of the Universidad Catolica then under the tutelage of Roberto Lecaros and Ismael Torres, Marcelo studied jazz and became a master of the double bass.

Marcelo collaborated with the most important Chilean musicians of his time becoming well known in the area of Jazz Fusion. He was a founding member of two of Chile's top Fusion bands, "Al Sur" and "Trifusion." He is currently a Professor of Electric Bass at the SCD Music School in Santiago. He owns a musical production company called WAMA and is the bassist and musical director of the band, which accompanies Alberto Plaza on his frequent concert tours.

As a composer and producer, Marcelo has also achieved tremendous success. He composed the music for three motion pictures as well as two highly acclaimed international theater and dance productions. With over ten years working with advertising firms he has written, produced or contributed to over 400 jingles.

Marcelo's first solo CD "Polosur Celeste" caught the attention of two Record Labels who recently signed agreements to distribute it worldwide. His compositions, production abilities and musicianship on this CD represent the pinnacle of his career thus far and set a standard for bass soloists to follow. He is now working on songs for his second CD and has become a member of the Petroglyph Records family of artists.

A diverse musician with wide experience throughout South America, The USA and Europe, Marcelo is on his way to becoming one of the world's most renowned bass players. Expect to hear much more from this talented musician in the future.

Sérgio Mattoso - BRAZIL

When it comes to latin music people generally think about sounds from Brazil or the Caribbean islands. However, it is a pleasure to realize that there are musicians from other places in this region making great music by blending their own culture with the universal language of jazz. A very pleasant CD.

Peggy Macaffee

A new-found love of bass
Having always loved the subtle tones of the bass, I was entranced by the deft fingers of Marcelo Aedo on my first listen. My third listen brought more discoveries in subtlety. Overall, an alluring mix of world sounds with a hearty mix of smooth jazz. Bravo!

This is music for the refined spirit.
Being a guitarist myself for the last twenty-two years, I use to sit around drop-jawed listening to great jazz musicians like Allan Holdsworth and Stanley Jordan. When I first put in Marcelo, I thought, “if Stanley played bass it might be something like this.” The growling fretless wanders in and out of and in perfect time with a variety of complex as well as simple rhythms – marches, slow and steady rock grooves, world and Latin rhythms, and unique anticipated feels, to name a few. But, unlike many virtuoso musicians, it’s not about showing off. Marcelo has no need, and probably doesn’t even think about it. The music is aesthetically pleasing, to say the least, tasteful, rich. Smooth jazz transforms itself into uplifting orchestration and groovy tempos seamlessly. This is music for the refined spirit.
