Portinho Quartet

Thursday, June 21
8PM & 10PM

Portinho needs little introduction. Born in Brazil he moved to the States in the early 1970s. Since arriving in the United States, Portinho has worked with many artists, including Airto Moreira, Gato Barbieri, Harry Belafonte, Dom Salvador, Paquito de Rivera, Astrud Gilberto, Michel Camilo, and Tania Maria. “Portinho is a quiet, modest man with a strong sense of integrity. Everything he plays has a statement in it, and the groove never stops.” – says Carl Stormer (Modern Drummer, 1988). Portinho plays Paiste Cymbals Mapex Drums.

Portinho has recorded with everyone from Nancy Wilson to Michel Legrand and Ron Carter. His engagements have paired him with Herbie Mann to John Lucien and he has performed clinic as far away as Denmark and Switzerland and Germany.
