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.

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
