The Antonio Forcione Quartet has been performing and wowing audiences at sell out concerts all over the world. They have also consistently been receiving 5 star reviews year after year at the Edinburgh Festival. This is a truly international line-up with Jenny Adejayan from Nigeria/Grenada/UK, Emiliano Caroselli from Italy, Matheus Nova from Brazil and Antonio Forcione from Italy. Between them they have performed with some of the biggest names in the pop and jazz world, done countless tours, charity concerts, workshops and albums.

Antonio Forcione is hailed as one of the most charismatic, unconventional guitarists in the musical world today. His solo performances never fail to bring the house down, let alone when he is performing in duo, as a trio, or with his quartet of international musicians. He breaks the mould of most conventional guitar sounds, be it in the field of jazz, Spanish, African, Brazilian or improvised music, with a ferocious virtuosity, passion and humour. “A major international guitar virtuoso .. one of those very few entertainers who can cast a spell on almost any audience … remarkable personal magnetism” JAZZ FM

Celebrated British jazz pianist Jason Rebello was labelled a veteran by critics at 19, and over the next decade won mostof the major jazz music awards.  Classically trained but inspired by Herbie Hancock, he came to the attention of one of the founders of jazz fusion, Weather Report’s saxophonist Wayne Shorter. Impressed by his musical fluency and style, Shorter produced his No 1 debut album A Clearer View in 1990. Technique, diversity and adaptability have enabled Jason to work with artists across the musical spectrum such as Peter

Gabriel, Phil Collins, Pee Wee Ellis, Joss Stone, Madeline Peyroux, Manu Katche and recently Charlene Soraia. In 2007, inspired by family life in Bath, he embarked on the Jazz Rainbow project. Created through a love of teaching and a belief that expression through music is an important part of a child’s development, Jason has worked nationally to promote learning through musical workshops in schools. The project resulted in the album Jazz Rainbow, a charming reinvention of much loved children’s tunes the whole family could enjoy. “In terms of sheer ability and potential, Jason is probably the finest young jazz musician this country has produced. His playing has great poise and maturity, which is unusual in somebody so young.”Stuart Nicholson, author Jazz: The Modern Resurgence
