Jazz @ Green Note presents… Felipe Montiero Quintet + Sam Rapley’s Fabled
FILIPE MONTEIRO QUINTET
Filipe Monteiro is a brazilian born guitarist and composer whose music combines his South American roots with the creativity of jazz, in an exciting mixture of musical styles opened to a collective improvisation. Monteiro’s music combines simple melodies which evoke the folk music of Brazil with all the slickness and sophistication of modern jazz.
SAM RAPLEY’S FABELED
Taking inspiration from Debussy, Tom Jobim, Sarah Vaughan and Bon Iver, the music of Fabled explores the wealth of textures, harmonies and grooves available in the traditional jazz quintet setting. Heavily influenced by music for film, and the relationship between music and storytelling, they are always searching for their own new ways to tell the classic, age-old stories.
“They’re armed with an engaging storyteller attitude that accentuates the beauty found in how one note transitions to the next, how one passage builds up from another, and the way in which many streams of lyricism unite in a single-flowing confluence of imagery.” – Bird is the Worm
“The idea of stories runs throughout the EP, and each piece is strongly thematic with a clear arc. Rapley is a deeply sentimental architect, who throws everything at this record – watercolours, fireworks, mist and storm. His playing has a unique character to it – a very sweet tone, that can, as the most human of characters so often do, turn and turn again until it has suddenly become the gut wrenching obsession you always feared.” – Cellars and Lofts
