Two Chances to Dine & Enjoy Bossa Nova Beats with Brazilian Jazz Pianist Helio Alves
Roost Restaurant is happy to welcome the return of live music at Union Arts Center! Presented by Mz. Valentine, November Jazz Lounge will showcase the Brazilian pianist Helio Alves, Sam Minaie (bass) and Alex Kautz (Drums)
A native of Sao Paulo, Brazil, pianist Helio Alves combines the rhythmic complexity of modern Brazilian music with the edgy energy of contemporary jazz. A resident of NYC, Alves has received high praise as an in-demand sideman with Joe Henderson, Yo-Yo Ma, Slide Hampton, Paquito D’Rivera, Airto Moreira and Flora Purim.
Helio was nominated for a Grammy with the album “Forests”, by the “Brazilian Trio”, a group that he co leads with bassist Nilson Matta and drummer Duduka da Fonseca. He has released four albums under his own name: “Trios” (1998), “Portrait in Black & White” (2004), “It’s Clear” (2009) and most recently, “Musica” featuring Antonio Sanchez, Reuben Rogers, Claudio Roditi and Romero Lubambo.
Helio’s latest album called “At Play”, released in 2020, is a collaboration with guitarist Romero Lubambo, bassist Reuben Rogers and drummer Edu Ribeiro.
