ARI BORGER is the main Blues-Jazz&Soul pianist and organist in Brazil.
Influenced by his American mother, he grew up listening to Blues and Jazz masters,
and all sort of brazilian music.
Ari lived in New Orleans and there he performed at the most popular places such as House of Blues and Tipitina’s. In Brazil he played at the biggest Blues and Jazz festivals, sharing evenings with B.B. King, Pinetop Perkins, Marcus Miller and Johnnie Johnson.
The “Backyard Jam” album brings up original compositions played with great feeling an incredible improvisation vibe.
When performing live, the Ari Borger Quartet shows great energy on stage, taking the audience to a musical trip with their blend of Blues, Jazz, Soul and Brazilian Rythms. Playing as a team, they only worry about the music itself. It’s a real and unique experience.
Modern and vintage at the same time, authentic and full of personality, this is Ari Borger Quartet/AB-4. Listen and fell it!!!
