Brazilian rhythms and melodies meet jazz harmony and improvisation in Dani & Debora Gurgel Quartet. They present their original compositions and bold arrangements of Brazilian and international standards in their albums “UM” and “Luz”, covering Hermeto Pascoal, João Bosco, Toninho Horta and Brad Mehldau, as well as songs immortalized by Sting, Elis Regina and Michael Jackson.

Their debut album, “UM”, was released in Japan by Rambling Records in 2013, followed by the quartet’s appearance at the 12th Tokyo Jazz Festival, among artists as Chick Corea and Bobby McFerrin, sold out shows in Japanese jazz venues and 4 weeks in the top played songs at radio J-WAVE.

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.

The new album, “Luz”, brings mostly Dani & Debora’s own compositions, all written after returning from Japan and accompanied by select covers, will be officially released worldwide on Sep 29th 2014 by Da Pá Virada.
