The Burchfield-Vituri Project presents its debut album, Metonímia, an eclectic collection of compositions and arrangements that intertwine modern jazz with Brazilian harmony and rhythm, exploring chamber-like textures within a jazz lineup. The band is comprised of Tyler Burchfield, tenor sax and clarinet; Pedro Vituri, electric and acoustic guitars; Matt Stavrakas, bass; Peter Manheim, drums; with special guests: Bobby Spellman, flugelhorn; Emily Pecoraro, bass clarinet.
The Burchfield-Vituri Project, based in Boston, is an ongoing series of collaborations between American saxophonist/woodwind doubler Tyler Burchfield and Brazilian guitarist Pedro Vituri. Influenced by modern and free jazz, traditional Brazilian music, modern classical, as well as funk and rock, Tyler and Pedro explore a wide sound palate, showcasing compositions and arrangements for duo, quartet, and larger ensemble. Additionally, their versatility as performer-composers has served them well in collaborating on chamber music projects and film scores with other artists. The band toured Brazil as a quartet in early 2015.
