Portuguese guitarist Vitor Pereira came to London in 2004, after studying with several jazz masters, and is building an excellent reputation as an accomplished player and writer. His band of top contemporary talent is “an intriguing group with a strong line-up and well-delivered compositions”, ranging from catchy, rock-like riffs to mesmerising atmospheres. “Pereira’s writing is sophisticated and often complex but always melodic and accessible” (Ian Mann) and the two excellent saxes create “interweaving textures overlaid with strong melodic statements”.
