Ricardo Alvarez Quartet
Ricardo Alvarez Quartet presents original compositions and selected jazz standards that develop the fusion between jazz and Latin American music. The debut of this group was in September 2011 at the Rymer Auditorium in York. Since then we have been invited to perform at The Phoenix Jazz Club, Camra Festival and other venues in York. In March 2015 the group premiered 'Suite for Jazz Quintet' at Sir Jack Lyons Concert Hall in York, UK.
In November 2016 the Quartet recorded their first CD 'Huay Not?' at Trevor Jones Studio. The album included 12 original jazz compositions composed during my postgraduate studies at The University of York. In July 2017 we were invited to present the album at Buxton Festival (Derbyshire). A review of that concert could be read in this link: https://www.buxtonfringe.org.uk/reviews2017mus.html
In September, one of the tracks of the album 'Red Rooster' was awarded in a Composition Contest organized by SCD in Chile. The CD launch concert was at The Basement in York on 3rd November 2017 for a full attenndance.
