The Igor Willcox Quartet is a jazz/fusion group comprised of Igor Willcox on drums, Vini Morales on keyboards, Wagner Barbosa on saxophone and Glecio Nascimento on bass. With elements of jazz, funk and fusion, the group plays originals compositions with vibrant musicality, spontaneity, and synergy.

The quartet has achieved great notoriety on the Brazilian instrumental music scene, standing out and performing at the most important festivals and Brazilian jazz clubs such as Bourbon Street, Sescs, Santos Jazz Festival, São Paulo Jazz Festival, Play Jazz Festival, Jazz no Hostel, and Jazz nos Fundos.

The quartet’s first CD called “LIVE!” demonstrates the group’s energy and vitality. Jazz World Quest describes the CD as “… capturing the spirit of a strongly welded band performing at a high voltage in the most impassioned and interactive way. It features seven originals along with three compositions by jazz fusion legends Allan Holdsworth, Wayne Shorter and Lenny White. Ten tracks of unexpected, creative interactions result from the combined strength of four virtuosi musicians, each of them contributing with their inventive skills to a perfect fusion of musicality and rhythms. 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”.

The quartet is making their first Canadian tour including this event at the Yardbird Suite.
