Chico Pinheiro Quartet on May 12th, 2018

Guitarist Chico Pinheiro is on the cutting edge of a new Brazilian sound that merges the heart of bossa nova with the heightened rhythmical drive of the younger generation. He has been recognized as guitar virtuoso as well as a singer of graceful beauty. Downbeat magazine claims him to be a "prodigy" and Latina Magazine calls him "the heart of the current Brazilian music scene." Pinheiro will be playing at the VJC with a Brazilian quartet featuring Helio Alves on piano and Eduardo Belo on bass. The quartet's drummer will be announced shortly.

Recognized as a rising star in Downbeat Magazine's 2011 Critic's poll, Pinheiro has released four albums as a leader; each one has received glowing reviews. His 2010 release, "There's a Storm Inside" was granted several awards by Jazz Latin Corner including Best Brazilian Jazz Álbum of the year, Best Latin Jazz Composition, and Best Latin Jazz Guitarist. Pinheiro has performed and recorded with Brazilian luminaries such as Ivan Lins, Rosa Passos, Dori Caymmi, Danilo Caymmi, João Donato, Johnny Alf, César Camargo Mariano, Luciana Souza, Chico César as well as northern stars including Brad Mehldau, Placido Domingo, Esperanza Spalding, Dianne Reeves, Nnenna Freelon, Bob Mintzer, Roberto Fonseca, Bob Mintzer Big Band, The Danish Radio Big Band, Mark Turner, Chris Potter, Eddie Gomez, Claudio Roditi, Duduka da Fonseca and Giovani Hidalgo.

May 12th will be an evening of Brazilian jazz, samba and bossa nova. When coming through Pinheriro, the resonates deeply with its rich history and is emboldened by fearlessly taking on the future. The concert has been generously sponsored by an important member of the VJC community, guitarist, singer-songwriter Chris Welles.
