I will create improvised solos and background lines, or record your written parts. Short deadlines are welcome. I am confortable with jazz, R&B, folk/acoustic and world music and will be glad to contribute to your project.
In 2019, one of the songs on my first EP ("Danae") was included on two Spotify playlists ("Jazz Brasileiro" and "Jazz Relax").

A very talented sax player. Most definitely a five star musician
As usual, Beto Braga came through with what I needed. Thank you once again. I'll be back soon!
Beto is a real pro who is great to work with and turns things around real fast. Most importantly he delivers big on sound with every track to take them to the next level Absolutely loved working with Beto and looking forward to more tracks with his playing!
Not only did I get what I came for, but working with Beto has been a classic case of getting "what I didn't know I wanted." Brilliant stuff! It won't be the last time :)
No issues . Got everything done in a timely fashion.
Great service and communication, he put great results in my record with his magnificent playing. If you need a talented saxophonist for your record look no further than Beto Braga.
Phenomenal musicianship and very professional. Very happy with these results and hope to work with Beto again soon.
Beto did a really nice job, delivered fast and went that extra mile to make sure I had what I needed.
A true professional and really nice to communicate with too!
Fantastic working with Beto. His musicianship really took my project to the next level, and his recordings sound studio-quality. Will definitely work with him again.
Beto's sensitive playing fitted with the arrangement and vision that I had for the two songs. Responsive and eager to work on the project.
Great sound. Beto played what my heart wanted. Very good saxophonist, highly recommended! I am looking forward to our next cooperation.
Great tone and musical expression
I also needed a revision on a track in relative minor and Beto did that...
On time and expert execution...
Beto promptly supplied the Baritone track. There was a misunderstanding in a small area of the score and he promptly sent a revision. I'm happy with the results.
Beautiful playing and a fast turnaround.
This man has so much soul and it all comes to show when playing his saxophone. Brilliant man with brilliant melodies. Well appreciated!
I knew what I wanted and wanted it right now but it didn't happen that way. I was taught a valuable lesson. Good things come to those who wait. I have what I want and I'm very satisfied. Thank you Beto!
Wonderful work, very quick delivery and strong performance. Highly recommended.
This is the second time that I have worked with Beto and it is always the same pleasure, he is an excellent saxophonist and always understands my requests perfectly. I recommend him.
Great work, quick communicator, went above and beyond what we asked him for! Definitely would use again!
Beto layed down not one, but two amazing sax tracks. Incredible musician, highly recommend. I will be coming back.
