Helio Alves
A native of São Paulo, Brazil, Awerded pianist Helio Alves combines the rhythmic complexity of modern Brazilian music with the edgy energy of contemporary jazz. A resident of NYC since the ’90s, Alves has received high praise as an in-demand sideman with the likes of Joe Henderson, Yo-Yo Ma, Sadao Watanabe, Slide Hampton, Airto Moreira & Flora Purim, Paquito D’Rivera, Joyce, and Rosa Passos to name but a few.
Helio has also 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.  www.helioalvesmusic.com
 
Edward Perez
Hailed by Jazz Times magazine for his “great dexterity,” and cited by critic Thomas Conrad for his musicality, New York bassist and composer Edward Perez is sought by fellow musicians for his creativity and experience in a great diversity of musical styles. Perez’s bass lines have been the choice of a stunning array of bandleaders including jazz vocal legend Mark Murphy, latin-jazz Grammy nominees Hector Martignon and Jane Bunnett, Colombian singer Lucia Pulido, trumpet virtuoso Joe Burgstaller of the Canadian Brass, and a host of modern jazz musicians including Martin Bejerano, Anat Cohen, Javier Vercher, Misha Piatigorsky, Francisco Mela, and Gilad Hekselman.

Ignacio Berroa
Ignacio Berroa has been recognized by many as one of the greatest drummers of our times. His numerous contributions to the American music scene have earned him a place among a selected group of artists known to have set new musical trends for the 20th century. Jazz Legend Dizzy Gillespie best defined Ignacio as: “… the only Latin drummer in the world in the history of American music that intimately knows both worlds: his native Afro Cuban music as well as Jazz…” Highly respected among his peers, Ignacio’s musicianship and versatility has enabled him to build a successful career by gaining the recognition of some of the most important artists in the business.
