Dani & Debora Gurgel Quartet

Brazilian rhythms meet jazz harmonies

Brazilian rhythms and melodies meet jazz harmony and improvisation in Gurgel Quartet, in which Dani Gurgel & Debora Gurgel present their original compositions and bold arrangements of Brazilian standards.

This quartet is the outcome of the reunion of Debora Gurgel and Dani Gurgel’s solo works. They have always been in each other’s projects, as composition and interpretation partners, joining their voice and piano into one for the last two decades. Drummer Thiago Rabello and bassist Sidiel Vieira beautifully complete this family style quartet.

The quartet's debut album, which will be released in June 2013, was encouraged by a series of concerts throughout the USA in 2012 (NYC, Boston and Seattle), that followed the quartet's most recent trip to Argentina (Buenos Aires e La Plata) and Uruguay (Festival Jazz a la Calle).

An inseparable union between instrumental music and carefully written words, putting Dani’s voice as a scatting woodwind instrument into a jazz ambient of improvisation, stitched along the tradition of the Brazilian popular music.
