Luiz Ebert - Drums, Percussion, Compositions
Native of Brasilia, Luiz blends drumming with percussive sensitivity. Combining the innovative concepts of jazz music with traditional elements of Brazilian music he creates a unique sonic palette that propels music in different directions.
Luiz graduated Cum Laude with a BFA from the City College of New York, studying under John Patitucci and Adam Cruz, and holds an MFA in jazz performance from the Aaron Copeland School of Music at Queens College CUNY, where he studied with Michael Mossman, Antonio Hart, David Berkman, and Billy Hart.
Luiz has performed alongside an array of promising new jazz artists that include Matt Miller, Ryan Brennan, Kyla Roscovich, Matt Turowsky and Chris Talio, to name a few. He also leads his own ensemble, E.B.E.R.T., and has co-lead NYChoro, an ensemble that combines the intricacies of both North American Jazz and the Brazilian chamber music of Choro. He is also currently working with some of the most inspiring Brazilian musicians in New York, including Cidinho Teixeira, Gustavo Amarante, Leonardo Cioglia, and Leco Reis.
