 “Alves has sublety, musicality and a extraordinary facility for improvisation…” “…exceptional melodic improviser…”
-Roberti L. Doerschuk, DownBeat Magazine

A native of Sao Paulo, Brazil, pianist Helio Alves combines the rhythmic complexity of modern brazilian music with the edgy energy of contemporary jazz. A resident of NYC since the early '90s, Alves has received high praise as an in-demand sideman with the likes of Joe Henderson, Yo-Yo Ma, Paquito D'Rivera, Airto Moreira, Claudio Roditi, Rosa Passos and Sadao Watanabe, to name but a few.
