Ricardo Grilli - Guitar

Event Date: 
Tuesday, February 4, 2014 - 8:00pm

Featuring: Christian Li - Piano Edward Perez - Bass Lee Fish - Drums

Based in the U.S. for five years brazilian guitarist and composer Ricardo Grilli is quickly gaining space in the country's exclusive Jazz scene. During this time he has played with Chris Potter, Jason Palmer, Mark Turner, Hector Martignon and Dave Liebman among others and venues such as The Blue Note, The Side Door, The Bar Next Door and Rockwood Music Hall.

His sound can be described as a blend between Contemporary Jazz and Brazilian Music, featuring intricate rhythms, harmonies and high energy improvisation where each member of the group brings their own ideas to contribute to the sound. The performance will feature music from If On A Winter's Night a Traveler, Ricardo's debut album inspired by the Italo Calvino book of the same name and other concepts.
