ZOHO MUSIC has released vibraphonist/ harmonica player Hendrik Meurkens' new CD NEW YORK SAMBA JAZZ QUINTET. Recorded live at Cecil's Jazz Club, the album features Hendrik's Samba Jazz Quartet with special guest Jed Levy on tenor and flute. Meurkens penned four of the nine tracks for the Quintet which also includes pianist Helio Alves, bassist Gustavo Amarante and drummer Adriano Santos.

“... Lucky for his listeners, Meurkens remains an inspired interpreter of Sambas and Chorinhos, and a bandleader with a knack for selecting a consistently appealing blend of instrumental voices - warm, tonally rich and perfectly attuned to each other...He also reprises two upbeat original pieces...sturdy enough to suggest that future generations of Brazilian jazz devotees may look to Meurkens' tunes as source and inspiration"--Philip Booth

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!
