Tito Pascoal was born in Cascais, Portugal. His father took him under his wing introducing Tito to a rich musical environment allowing him to grow musically. What is special about Tito is how he became fluent in numerous styles at an early age. Tito started public performances at the young age of seven to play Black Gospel Music in his home church. The first recorded CD "Walk the Walk", was released when Tito was twelve years old. Tito has experience as a live performer and studio musician and maintains a steady schedule both in the U.S. and abroad. The newest CD project The Sun Stood Still, was released in July 2011 and the beginning of a new project called The Tim And Tito Pascoal band again accompanied by world-renowned musicians such as Richard Bona, Evan Marien, Russell Ferrante, Tom Kennedy, among others. Tito is currently endorsed by Yamaha, VicFirth, Zildjian Evans and Cymbag.
Tim received classical training at the Lisbon Conservatory of Music in Portugal at a very early age but then switched his interest towards Jazz in his teen years. He started to grow more of an appreciation for Jazz which eventually earned a scholarship at the Berklee College of Music in Boston USA . After graduating from Berklee College of Music Tim established his residency in the US where he lives with his family, he continues a steady schedule of freelance work as performer, producer and arranger. Tim has worked together with artists such as Eric Marienthal, Nelson Rangell and Jeff Lorber among many others. In 2006 he produced and compose Walk The Walk to the debut album for his son Titus, when he was 12. Tim and Tito formed Tim Tito Pascoal band in 2012 and released The Sun Stood Still, and have been touring since than.
"O.k., I opened the CD case, plopped in the CD and proceeded
to listen with measured interest to some really exquisitely
diverse jazz. I didn’t bother to read the bio or liner
notes on this one first, as I normally do. I was just going
to groove on some new music and get down to the review
later. Then, I noticed something very interesting about the
drumming. This cat was handling all types of timing patterns
with incredible ease. I chalked it up to years of
experience. Then, I decided to read the bio and liner
notes. That’s when I discovered that I had been listening
to a 12-year-old! Thus is the case with Tito Pascoal-a 12-
year-old Portuguese young man with a really powerful passion
for jazz, and, boy, does it ever show." -Ronald Jackson-Jazz
