Helio Alves

Helio Alves: Piano

A native of São Paulo, Brazil, pianist Helio Alves combines the rhythmic complexity of modern Brazilian music with the edgy energy of contemporary jazz. A resident of NYC since the '90s, Alves has received high praise as an in-demand sideman with the likes of Joe Henderson, Yo-Yo Ma, Sadao Watanabe, Slide Hampton, Airto Moreira & Flora Purim, Paquito D'Rivera, Joyce, and Rosa Passos to name but a few.

Helio has also released four albums under his own name: "Trios" (1998), "Portrait in Black & White" (2004), "It's Clear" (2009) and most recently,"Musica" featuring Antonio Sanchez, Reuben Rogers, Claudio Roditi and Romero Lubambo.

Check out "Brazilian Jazz Piano", Helio's online piano course and new album, "At Play", with the fantastic musicians Romero Lubambo, Reuben Rogers and Edu Ribeiro. Go to: www.openstudiojazz.

Co-Presented with the Embassy of Brazil
