"Alves has sublety, musicality and a extraordinary facility for
improvisation…" "…exceptional melodic improviser…"
-Roberti L. Doerschuk, DownBeat Magazine

*Alves is a pianist whose instincts are lush and romantic and expansive-and
driven by an inner pulse."*
*Thomas Conrad, JazzTimes*
A native of Sao 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 early '90s, Alves has received high praise as an in-demand sideman with the likes of Joe Henderson, Yo-Yo Ma, Paquito D'Rivera, Airto Moreira, Claudio Roditi, Rosa Passos and Sadao Watanabe, 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, "Musica" featuring Antonio Sanchez, Reuben Rogers, Claudio Roditi and Romero Lubambo.
