WALES PLAYS BRAZIL

Tuesday 4 July, Globe Stage, 18.00

Twenty years after he recorded his celebrated album, “Wales Plays Brazil”, featuring tenor sax star Dave O’Higgins, guitarist Trefor Owen has put together this exciting Latin-flavoured quintet which revisits a number of his own original lyrical compositions from the CD plus some well-chosen standards by composers like Antonio Carlos Jobim, including ‘Wave’ and  ‘One Note Samba’. This time around Trefor, who has performed extensively in the USA and is widely considered to be Wales’ premiere jazz guitarist, will be joined by Liam Byrne (tenor sax), Andy Hulme (guitar), Ed Harrison (d bass) and Hugh Lawrence on assorted Latin percussion.
