The album ‘Nascente‘, released in 2010, features Luiz Morais’ studied and delicate jazz compositions. A relative newcomer to the UK music scene, Morais’ forte lies firmly in his 7-string guitar playing and the Brazilian rhythmic roots of Samba, Choro and Bossa Nova, showcased in this debut album and as a live performer.

As the name implies, Brilliant Brazil with Luiz Morais Sextet (at the PizzaExpress Holborn on September 27th) brings to the stage Morais’s guitar playing alongside flute, piano, bass and percussion for dance infused Samba, Bossa Nova and Choro musical stylings. The jazz and Brazilian music singer Gabriela Kozyra, who also participated with Morais on ‘Nascente‘ recordings, will join the sextet for this Wednesday evening performance.

September 27th, PizzaExpress Holborn, 8:30 pm
