Ricardo Alvarez Quartet

Presenting the Scarborough debut of the Ricardo Alvarez Quartet, a band that fuses jazz and Latin American music in an enjoyable and accessible way.

Ricardo is a saxophonist who began his musical career in the 1990s in Chile playing Latin jazz and Cuban music, performing at jazz festivals throughout the American continent. He moved to York in 2010 to do a PhD in music and the Quartet made its debut in 2011.

In 2016 the Quartet recorded an album of original jazz compositions, Huay Not? including the award winning ‘Red Rooster’ and Ricardo is now working on material for a second album. We are delighted to welcome a band that is establishing itself on the circuit.

With Ricardo (tenor sax) are Alec Robinson (keyboard), Emlyn Vaughn (bass) and Caspar Haslam (drums).

REVIEW: Gary Potter with the Matt Holborn Trio


"In this age of hype and hyperbole how simply wonderful to find somebody living up to an immense reputation. Swing guitarist Gary Potter is in the flesh everything the reviews and videos suggest he might be - a genius of Djangology!" Yorkshire News
