Love Brazilian Music? Catch Vento Em Madaira in Early June – London and Wales

They are really an amazing bunch who have played with everyone important in Brazil… I played with the sax player Teco years ago when i was offered the Jerwood award from Cheltenham Jazz festival to bring over whoever I wanted (as long as they where up for it) I chose Teco Cardoso, I love his sax and flute playing on many Brazilian records – especially with Joyce. He also played with Edu Lobo, Baden Powel and Rosa Pasos …

The drummer Edu Ribeiro was the drummer on the Randy Brecker’s album: Randy in Brazil (summit Records, 2008) for which he won a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Jazz Album.

Their piano player Tiago Costa is also a Latin Grammy winner…As an arranger his work was performed by São Paulo State Symphony Orchestra (OSESP), Brazilian Symphony Orchestra, Orquestra Jazz Sinfônica, Orchestre National d’Ile de France, Copenhagen University Big Band, Minas Gerais Symphony Orchestra, Santo André Symphony Orchestra, Petrobras Orchestra, São Paulo State Symphonic Band, Ahn Trio (NY); and artists such as Milton Nascimento, Jane Monheit, Maria Gadú, 5 a Seco, Regina Carter, Maria Rita, Monica Salmaso & Pau Brazil, Lenine, Edu Lobo, Zizi Possi, Roberta Sá, Céu, Stefon Harris, Stanley Jordan, Dave Liebman, Trio Corrente, Mauricio Einhorn, Fabiana Cozza, Luiz Melodia, Paulinho da Viola and Rosa Passos.

The band leader, Lea runs a really important label in Sao Paulo called Maritaca that releases contemporary Brazilian Jazz and progressive folkloric music.. She has worked with Hermeto Pascual and wrote music for Joyce.

Their singer Monica Salmaso is also well known, one of the best in Brazil.

I could go on… for ages.. but instead maybe go to the website:

It’s all there.

Still not convinced? Check out these quotes.

“These guys are so organic, the group is amazing, they all think so much alike when they play. Just beautiful !!” “a strong reminder of a Brazil that so many wish for, including myself”
Egberto Gismonti

“This music will invade people’s hearts forever“
Edu Lobo

“Vento em Madeira is a quintet of brilliant, creative musicians from São Paulo, playing an all-original repertoire, mostly written by the amazing Lea Freire. A hidden Brazilian treasure to be discovered.”

This is a Portuguese based (apart from me) quartet, many of the tracks are composed by myself and arranged by the quartet together in an organic way.  The music is largely influenced by the landscape, culture, music and friendship of Spain and Portugal, It sounds quite relaxed and sunny.

LONDON: Vortex
MON 4TH FEB, 2013 8.00pm

Two duos built around the wide-ranging, imaginative and melodic piano playing of Dorian Ford.

Carol Grimes is a legendary singer, much loved and with a pedigree back to working with Cream and the Yardbirds in the 60s, with a soulful voice that pierces the emotions. Dorian has been collaborator in playing and writing for many years.

Guitarist Jonny Phillips leads the much-loved Oriole. In his duo with Dorian, they investigate the jazz heritage of Jarrett and Bill Evans, while leavening it with Mediterranean and Brazilian music.

Seb Rochford & Kit Downes Duo

Thursday 6 | 8.30pm | £8 | The Vortex Jazz Club – London

Thanks to everyone who came to this. There is a short video below, its bad quality, in-fact it actually looks like we are in a vortex for real! Seb Rochford played with us on this track entitled Sierva Maria.


A rare opportunity to hear myself and pianist Dorian Ford step out of our usual roles to explore the music of the masters such as Bill Evans and Keith Jarrett alongside noir-like originals.
Dorian is an incredible talent not to be missed.

John Fordham, Monday 30 May 2011

“The closing night took in a workshop for founder Barak Schmool’s Royal Academy students, Bates’s Beloved Bird Trio, and world-music guitarist Jonny Phillips’s Oriole, playing the cinematic sonic-travelogue from the group’s upcoming Every New Day album.
The F-ire philosophy was at the core of Phillips’s show. An evolving relationship between Schmool on congas and Bosco de Oliveira on drums furnished absorbing contrasts: with the lyrical and softly propulsive sound of the leader’s acoustic guitar; with a texture-rich lineup including the imaginative cellist Ben Davis and powerful tenor saxist Idris Rahman. Glowering Spanish harmonies, rhythmically devious sambas and broad-horizon ruminations characterised Phillips’s atmospherically songlike music, and its periodic jazz diversions sharpened the edges.”

Oriole will soon to releasing there long awaited
third album “Every New Day” on F-ire Recorded music.
Expect highly visual music
celebrating the power of people, places,
travels and moments in time that
will stay with you long after they have past.

Coming soon……
