Hendrik Meurkens, harmonica
Helio Alves, piano

Hendrik Meurkens and Helio Alves have been playing together since 1994, when they first toured Europe with the Hendrik Meurkens Samba Jazz Quartet. That same year, they recorded their first CD October Colors.

In the last decade, Hendrik and Helio have become regular collaborators on a variety of projects. They have toured and recorded repeatedly and their duo performances within the context of the Samba Jazz Quartet eventually grew into a project of its own.

Equally at home with Brazilian music and Jazz, their repertoire includes choros, jazz standards, their own originals and lots of Jobim.

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!
