The Sandro Norton Quartet is best described as alchemy. A melting pot for mixing and experimenting with different music genres from traditional jazz and blues to rock and jazz fusion. It can also be seen as a temple in which to honour jazz fusion masters such as Chick Corea, Gary Burton, Bill Evans, Carla Bley and Emily Remler.
Combining these themes with Sandro Norton’s original compositions, the Sandro Norton Quartet has created almost three hours of repertoire; culminating in a dynamic performance which never fails to draw its audience in. The virtuosity that the songs demand, generates a vigorous energy;
establishing an effervescent interaction between the audience and stage. It has become tradition in the
Quartet’s history to get invited back to play time and time
again. With performances in Portugal, Spain and England,
this personal project has already enjoyed the participation of several musicians of national and international renown,
such as Gary Burton, Maria João, Carlos Azevedo and Yuri
Daniel. Currently, the Sandro Norton Quartet consists of
pianist Filipe Raposo, drummer Mário Barreiros, bass player
Carlos Barretto and Sandro Norton on guitars.
