Quartet Brasil is award winning Welsh pianist Huw Warren’s celebration of his  lifelong love affair with the music of Brazil. Huw brings a stunning group to the club that includes Mark Lockheart (saxes), Dudley Phillips (bass) and Zoot Warren (drums). 

Re-interpreting familiar and less familiar Brazilian classics by Hermeto Pascoal, Tom Jobin, Joyce, Guinga, Egberto Gismonti, Pixinguinha and more… The incredible diversity of Samba, Baião, Forró, Frevo, Maracatu, Choro and lyrical song are all celebrated with an infectious groove heavy approach. Dazzling virtuosity meets deeply lyrical poignancy in music that can make you laugh, cry and want to dance.

Huw's Brasil project follows in the footsteps of his critically acclaimed Hermeto+ recording of 2009 on Basho records, which presented Hermeto’s music alongside new compositions from Huw.
