Brazil, choro

Luiz Morais album launch

Here’s one I’m really looking forward to… On Sunday 24th October, Luiz Morais will launch his new album, ‘In The Weave’. He recorded it earlier this year in Brazil, featuring an elite group of musicians in Rio de Janeiro. The music is absolutely fantastic. Over several years of playing alongside Luiz in Alvorada, it’s been a pleasure to hear him developing his compositional voice, and now to see it realised in this new project.

The London launch promises to be a great gig, and features an equally talented bunch of players from the London jazz scene, who I can’t wait to play with: Gareth Lockrane (flutes), Laura Jurd (trumpet), Tom White (trombone), John Turville (piano), Misha Mullov-Abbado (double bass) and Raphael Delphino (drums), plus guests Rachel Hayter (flute) and Gabriela Kozyra (voice).

This should be a really special gig. Tickets available here:
