Dani & Debora Gurgel Quarteto

“Listen to this album (UM) as loud as you can. Certainly the pleasure of the live/one shot recording will spread throughout the room.”
Ryosuke Itoh, Taiyo Records (Japan, 2013)

“Brazilian rhythms and MPB incorporated with jazz harmony and improvisation in a dynamic result.”
Takashi Horiuchi, DaCapo Magazine (Japan, 2013)

“Dani Gurgel represents a new musical generation, both traditional and unexpected.”
Édouard Launet, Libération (Paris, 2009)

“Dani’s scatting sounds Brazilian; her intervals, attacks and phrasing articulations sound like jazz.”
Mauro Apicella, La Nación (Buenos Aires, 2011)

“Debora’s piano is highly refined. She thinks as a jazz musician, but won’t hide her Brazilian accent.”
Julio Maria, O Estado de São Paulo (São Paulo, 2014)

Brazilian rhythms and melodies meet jazz harmony and improvisation in UM, an album in which Dani Gurgel & Debora Gurgel present their original compositions and bold arrangements of Brazilian standards.

This quartet is the outcome of the reunion of Debora Gurgel and Dani Gurgel’s solo works. They have always been in each other’s projects, as composition and interpretation partners, joining their voice and piano into one for the last two decades. Drummer Thiago Rabello and bassist Sidiel Vieira beautifully complete this family style quartet.

The quartet’s debut album was first released in Japan in August 2013, followed by the quartet’s appearance at Tokyo Jazz Festival as part of the 2013 Japan Tour. 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.
