Burchfield-Vituri Project

The Burchfield-Vituri Project is an ongoing series of collaborations between American saxophonist/woodwind doubler Tyler Burchfield and Brazilian guitarist Pedro Vituri. Influenced by modern and free jazz, traditional Brazilian music, modern classical, as well as funk and rock, Tyler and Pedro explore a wide sound palate, showcasing compositions and arrangements for duo, quartet, and larger ensemble, all of which can be heard on their debut album, Metonímia, released in March of 2018. Additionally, their versatility as performer-composers has served them well in collaborating on chamber music projects and film scores with other artists. The band toured Brazil as a quartet in early 2015 with then Chicago-based drummer Peter Manheim and Brazilian bassist Rodrigo Marques.
