Tuesday 28th January: Filipe Monteiro Quintet


Filipe Monteiro – Guitar

Alam Nathoo – Saxophones

Sam Leak – Piano

Fergus Ireland – Bass

Pedro Segundo – Drums



This week saw Loz Speyer and co. vividly portray various beasts from the animal kingdom (amongst other things), and a lot of fun it was too! Thanks to all those who made it down. Next week Filipe Monteiro will be evoking warmer climes with jazz inspired by his native homeland…

Filipe Monteiro Quintet


Brazilian guitarist Filipe Monteiro leads a talented quintet through his original compositions – inspired by “Musica Gaucha’ (the music of Southern Brazil), jazz and groove music. Filipe’s music combines simple melodies recalling his native folk music with all the slickness and sophistication of modern jazz. The quintet will be performing material from his new album In Bad Company:

“A highly enjoyable listen, an amazingly polished debut that is somehow irresistible, with sophisticated harmonies, melodies and rhythms, filled with charm and wit, as well as memorable tunes and some very Brazilian grooves.” – Rain Loire’s World of Music

“A lovely selection of compositions, beautifully played” – John Parricelli

For more info, check out Filipe’s website:


We’ll be welcoming you in to the now positively toasty backroom from 8.30 (did we mention the new heaters?!), £5-entry, with the bar open until midnight…oh, and tasty burgers available for £not-a-lot until 9pm for the early birds! See you down at the Amersham…
