BRBQ unites three distinctive voices in Scottish jazz, James Brady (trumpet/flugelhorn), Mario Caribé (bass) and Stu Brown (drums/percussion), with one of the UK’s leading interpreters of Bossa Nova and Brazilian jazz, Ed Rice (piano).

Brazilian born Caribé lectures in jazz at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, whilst prolific performer Stu Brown spent 3 weeks on a British Council funded residency in Brazil followed by a UK tour with cultural exchange project Orquestra Scotland Brasil. Rice is currently working on a PhD in interpreting bossa nova from the perspective of a jazz pianist, whilst new to Scotland Brady has been studying and playing the music of Brazil for over 10 years. Together, they bring a freshness and authenticity to playing the music of Antonio Carlos Jobim, Hermeto Pascoal, João Bosco and other giants of Brazilian jazz, combining flowing melody, rhythmic grace and open, breathing improvisation. Each artist is internationally in demand in their own right as performers and composers.

The programme will be announced during the performance.
