Led by Portuguese guitarist Vitor Pereira this London based quintet is soon gaining momentum as one of the most exciting contemporary jazz bands of the moment.
Despite its obvious Jazz roots, this music unveils a vast background of musical influences.
The abundance of energetic and catchy riffs has drawn comparison to bands like ‘Led Bib’ or ‘Trio VD’ but they cover a full spectrum of textures dropping down to quieter and mesmerizing atmospheres and creating an extremely unique and dynamic sound capable of captivating even the most reluctant listener.
They jumped into international recognition in 2012 with the release of its critically acclaimed debut album ‘Doors’ out on ‘F-IRE Presents’.
Pereira’s music is a heady mix of immediately accessible jazz, hard-hitting rock and hints of ‘world’ music”
