Mozik

Mozik, a band featuring pianist Gilson Schachnik and drummer Mauricio Zottarelli, will perform its muscular brand of Brazilian jazz. Schachnik and Zottarelli were both born in Brazil, but it wasn’t until they landed in Boston that Brazilian music seized their imagination. The band's self-titled album reflects a deep engagement with Brazilian rhythms and forms, filtered through a love of the early fusion of Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock. Recorded in 2011, the album features Brazilian guitarist Gustavo Assis-Brasil, Russian flutist Yulia Musayelyan, and Argentine bassist Fernando Huergo. “The quintet’s music is both warm and intelligent, while retaining the sort of funky playfulness,'' wrote All About Jazz.
