JazzWorldQuest-Igor Willcox Quartet-North City

Igor Willcox Quartet(Brazil)-North City
With their new single called “North City,” Brazilian drummer Igor Willcox and his band continue their series of jazz fusion experimentation. Again the chemistry between the four musicians is flawless and the compositional construction is based on the tasteful balance between acoustic and electric instruments. The song’s structure allows everyone to keep jamming freely throughout the song, the keyboards open the door to an exciting sax line, which is followed by a vivid rhythm section. The groove is warm and lively, dynamic bass lines combined with frequent tempo changes, add energizing colors to the ensemble. Enjoy an entertaining piece of jazz fusion expertly played with heart and soul.
