Igor Willcox

Considered one of the most important Brazilian drummers, Igor Willcox has achieved great notoriety in the instrumental music scene with his group Igor Willcox Quartet, standing out and performing in the most important festivals and Jazz clubs around the world such as Blue Note, Sescs, Santos Jazz Festival, São Paulo Jazz Festival, Play Jazz Festival, etc. On April of 2019, the group has made his first Canadian tour, performing in the most important jazz clubs, such as the legendary Yardbird Suite (Edmonton), The Jazz Room (Waterloo), Frankie’s Jazz (Vancouver), Bucking Jam Palace (Calgary), The Rex (Toronto). Soon afterward, the group has departed to Europe to perform at the North City Jazz Festival, in Serbia, one of the most important Jazz Festivals of Eastern Europe on May 18th.

“The first Live album of the Brazilian drummer Igor Willcox Quartet, captures the spirit of a strongly welded band performing at a high voltage in the most impassioned and interactive way. Ten tracks of unexpected, creative interactions resulted from the combined strength of four virtuosi musicians, each of them contributing with their inventive skills to a perfect fusion of musicality and rhythm. “Fans of jazz fusion will enjoy a high-quality album delivered by a phenomenal band fueled by the natural energy of like minds playing as a singular voice”. (Jazz World Quest). The album also received an excellent review from All About Jazz, one of the most important jazz sites of the world”. (Jazz World Quest)

(Jazz World Quest).

“ Fans of fusion and jazz-funk, in particular, will appreciate Willcox's hard-driving, relentless style, and with some tasteful contributions from his colleagues, it's an auspicious outing from this versatile drummer and songwriter.” There's more than enough evidence here to suggest that Willcox can claim a place at the table among current drummers continuing to draw effective inspiration from the abundant resources of jazz fusion”

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
