This is a fabulous project created by saxophonist Toliy and good friend, guitarist Hugh Turner. This exciting quartet of crack musicians – Bossa Gringos takes Latin rhythms (Bossa Nova, Samba, Rhumba etc) and the iconic musicians who famously played this style (Stan Getz, Dizzy Gillespie, Antonio Jobim etc) and breathes new life into well known and not so well known melodies. The result is exciting stuff, with lilting rhythms, intriguing arrangements and some spectacular solo work from all four members. Unusually, the quartet boasts two bassists (Raph Mizuraki and Paul Jefferies), although they will alternate between percussion, acoustic upright bass and bass guitar. We promise, you’ll love it!
