Quatro a Zero at Guimarães Jazz Festival

In November, Quatro a Zero will perform at the prestigious festival Guimarães Jazz in Portugal.

After 25 years of continuous achievement, Guimarães Jazz is recognized as one of the main jazz events in Europe. The schedule for the 2016 edition of the festival is not yet complete but in past editions, big names like Wayne Shorter, John Scofield, Chris Potter, Herbie Hancock, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Ron Carter, Bill Frisell, Jimmy Cobb and Wallace Roney with "Kind of Blue, 50 Years On", Dave Holland, Jack DeJohnette, Don Byron, John Abercrombie, Joe Lovano, McCoy Tyner, Charles Lloyd, Cassandra Wilson, Vince Mendoza, Steve Coleman, Ahmad Jamal, Jan Garbarek, Ravi Coltrane, John Patitucci, Charlie Haden, Lee Konitz, Joshua Redman, among others, took part in the programming of this event.

 

Throughout the history of Guimarães Jazz, Brazilian music was present in the program only once, more than 20 years ago, with Hermeto Paschoal. Since then, Brazilian musicians not have integrated festival cast. Quatro a Zero takes the responsibility to present the richness of Brazilian traditions. At the same time, it is proposed to contribute to the widespread perception that the Choro continues to present new and interesting sounds!

It is worth mentioning the support of the Brazilian Ministry of Culture: Quatro a Zero was contemplated in the Exchange and Dissemination Award, which provided financial support for participation in the event, which will enable the group to present in other European cities!
