Gideon Brazil Quintet – Debut
Sun 31 July @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$18 – $25
Under the moniker of The Natives, Gideon Brazil (saxophone and flute) led a quintet that independently released their debut album, Yma Jam Yma, back in 2007. After a long break of several years, the Gideon Brazil Quintet is reformed, with this performance being in preparation for an upcoming album recording.
The group will explore new compositions by Brazil, featuring mainly groove-based music. The group gives voice to Brazil’s strong, soulful saxophone and lyrical jazz flute playing. Brazil has played as a sideman in a wide range of projects, including Antelodic, Brenton Foster Sextet, Louise Goh Quartet, Adam Simmons Creative Music Ensemble, Elissa Goodrich Gene Tree and pop artist, Gotye (to name a few). Playing alongside Brazil will be longtime collaborators Darrin Archer (piano), Ryan Griffith (guitar), Jordan Tarento (electric bass) and Aaron Light (drums).
