Tom Harrell Quartet

FRI & SAT • MAR 15 & 16
7 PM & 9:30 PM

Praised by Newsweek for his pure melodic genius, Tom Harrell is widely recognized as one of the most creative and dynamic jazz instrumentalists and composers of our time.

Harrell all but transcends musical labels. His music runs the gamut from the modal and melodic to uncommon modernisms that sonically broach the film soundtrack and/or the avant-garde. He is a frequent winner in DownBeat and JazzTimes magazines’ Critics and Readers Polls and a multiple Grammy nominee. Along with the late saxophonist Bob Berg, Tom opened the second Jazz Forum loft in 1981. Don’t miss the Tom Harrell Quartet featuring Danny Grissett on piano, Ugonna Okegwo on bass and Johnathan Blake on drums at the Jazz Forum, March 15 and 16.


Bob DeVos Quartet feat. Andy LaVerne

SUN • MAR 17
4 PM & 6 PM

Guitarist, composer and arranger Bob DeVos is hailed as a brilliant, knowing bebop player, a master with a sound to die for–rich, full, deep, positive, round and warm. With long, blues-drenched melodic lines and a horn-like approach, he has a signature style of groove and sophistication. A modern player with strong traditional roots, DeVos is at home with straight-ahead jazz, blues, Rhythm & Blues, funk, Latin and more. DeVos performs in every setting from solo to big band.

Sergio Pereira Brazilian Jazz! Celebrating Zoho CD

SUN • MAR 31
4 PM & 6 PM

Sergio Pereira is visiting the Jazz Forum on his upcoming “Nu Brasil” CD release tour!

Born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Sergio Pereira started playing acoustic guitar (violao) at the age of 8 years old, influenced by his older brother who played the guitar and helped him with his first chords. He was also influenced by the music of bossa-nova giants at the time such as Joao Gilberto, Tom Jobim, Carlos Lyra, Joao Donato, Marcos Valle and many more. Growing up in Rio in the 60’s and 70’s has contributed tremendously to the energy, groove and rhythms reflected in his music today.

His latest album ”’Nu Brasil,” released by ZOHO Music of NYC, includes some of the most well known musicians in the world, such as pianist Helio Alves, flutist Oriente Lopez, harmonica player Gabriel Grossi, Spanish saxophonist Perico Sambeat, singer Paula Santoro, guitarist Marcus Texeira and others.
