CHICO PINHEIRO – guitar

Ed Motta aptly described him as the "Brazilian Wayne Shorter," praising Chico's virtuosity as both a performer and composer.
 Chico brings his power quartet to Ronnie Scott's stage, with Holger Marjamaa on piano, Mathias Allamane on acoustic bass, and Rogério Pitomba on drums. The quartet presents Chico’s very distinctive sound which encompasses influences from Tom Jobim, Edu Lobo, Baden Powell, Gilberto Gil, and Caetano to Wayne Shorter, Steely Dan, Coltrane, Chopin, and Debussy.

There are many incredible guitarists out there. On the top of that list, I'd include Chico Pinheiro.
