William Paterson University presents The Helio Alves Quartet

(WAYNE, NJ) -- The Helio Alves Quartet comes to the Shea Center for Performing Arts at William Paterson University as part of their Jazz Room Series on Sunday, October 9th at 4:00pm. A native of Sao Paulo, Brazil, pianist Helio Alves combines the rhythmic complexity of modern Brazilian music with the edgy energy of contemporary jazz. The quartet includes Helio Alves: Piano; Chico Pinheiro: Guitar; Joe Martin: Bass; and Alex Kautz: Drums.

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, Gato Barbieri, Oscar Castro-Neves, Airto Moreira and Flora Purim, to name a few. 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.
