Four years have passed since Nelson Faira last visited the Zurich Jazz Orchestra. The Brazilian guitarist and composer is an acoustic „who is who“ of the South American world of music. He has played with everybody, has influenced everybody, has kept the tradition of his country alive and has passed it on. An evening with him contains pieces of the Música Popular Brasileira he has arranged, and his own compositions such as «Brooklyn High» or «Rio». The common ground is his typically South American affectionate stage presence.
Nelson Faria has worked with musicians such as João Bosco, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Till Brönner and Milton Nascimento and has been to Zurich before with the João Bosco band. Aside from his music career, Faria is a sought-after teacher, has written six books and lectures in the States as well as in Sweden where he spends part of his time. We look forward to seeing him again.
Musical direction: Daniel Schenker
