Multi-instrumentalist Almir Cortez - Inverness House Concert - Rare performance
Almir and his band is on a three week US tour and will be playing at a house concert on the Inverness ridge this Friday Jan 26th.
A native of Bahia, Brazil, versatile multi-instrumentalist ALMIR CÔRTES is equally at home on the mandolin, acoustic and electric guitars, the folkoric viola caipira, and the rarely-seen guitarra baiana. His repertoire of styles and compositions is equally broad, including choro, frevo, samba, maxixe and Brazilian jazz among others. He has toured throughout Brazil as well as the United States, Europe, and Cuba. Almir has performed with Howard Alden, David Grisman, Mike Marshall, Nailor Proveta, Armandinho Macêdo and many other luminaries, as well as leading his own Trio.
Mandolin master Mike Marshall says Almir is a virtuoso instrumentalist who swings like mad in a variety of musical styles and improvises with great energy and creativity. He is a world class performer.
Almir is redesigning the Brazilian guitar with personality and virtuosity, seeking new paths but always on the roads of his native country. Ulisses Rocha, guitarist & composer, professor at the Unicamp Institute of the Arts
Saxophonist/clarinetist HARVEY WAINAPEL has his feet firmly planted in two musical worlds. His jazz experience has led to performances and/or recordings with the likes of McCoy Tyner, Kenny Barron, Joe Henderson, Johnny Coles and the Metropole Orchestra. He has toured internationally with Ray Charles, Joe Lovano, and Airto Moreira & Flora Purim. Wainapels deep love for and research into Brazilian music has also resulted in performances with Guinga, Jovino Santos Neto, Spok, Amilton Godoy, Filó Machado and Paulo Bellinati, among many other notables from that country. To date, Harvey has presented his work in clubs, festivals, and studios in 22 countries.
The San Francisco Examiner stated Wainapel proves that he is amongst the most
imaginative, sensitive and creative saxophonists of the post-Coltrane era.
Rio de Janeiros daily newspaper O Globo wrote: Wainapel displayed incredible intimacy with the language of Brazilian music and great stage presence.
