For fans of Kurt Rosenwinkel, Chris Potter, the Brian Blade Fellowship, and Jazz! Since arriving in 2012, guitarist Ricardo Grilli has been rising through the ranks and making quite an impression in New York’s Jazz scene. In this short time he has played with world renowned artists such as Chris Potter, Chris Cheek, Mark Turner, Aaron Parks, Joe Martin, Eric Harland, Kendrick Scott, Kevin Hays, Jon Cowherd, Orlando Le Fleming and Taylor Eigsti among others. He’s also headlined in many major clubs in New York and abroad including The Blue Note, The Iridium, Smalls Jazz Club, Scullers Jazz Club (Boston), The Rex (Toronto), Cornelia St. Café, The Sidedoor, JazzB (São Paulo).
A native of São Paulo, Brazil, in 2008 Ricardo was chosen to represent his country at Dave Liebman’s IASJ (International Association of Schools of Jazz) meeting in Riga, Latvia. In 2013, Ricardo released his debut album, “If On A Winter’s Night A Traveler”, it received rave reviews from the press qualifying as one of the best debut records of 2013 on the NPR Francis Davis Critic’s Poll. His brand new record 1962 is ready to be released and features, saxophonist Mark Turner, pianist Kevin Hays and the returning rhythm section of Joe Martin and Eric Harland.
“There’s an attractively questing quality in the album’s opener, “Arcturus,” named after the brightest star in the Northern sky. Featuring an A-list rhythm team — the pianist Aaron Parks, the bassist Joe Martin, the drummer Eric Harland — it has a driving rock groove over which Mr. Grilli unfurls a coolly billowing solo.” (Nate Chinen, NYTimes)
“This is a fine example of four distinctive musicians fitting together well to make fine music. Grilli is a very capable guitarist and he mixes very well with the flash and power of his comrades.” (AllAboutJazz)
“… a post-bop guitarist with a sideline interest in the cosmos and a taste for the ultramodern.” (Nate Chinen, New York Times)
“…Grilli’s considerable chops are in full effect in each setting… This is an admirable outing by a new face on the scene.” (Bill Milkowski, Downbeat Magazine)
“Excellent, can’t stop listening!” (Steve Greenlee, Jazz Times)
