Solos de Ave (Bird Solos) explores and reconstructs the music of Brazilian composers Moacir Santos, Guinga, Cartola, and Tom Jobim with vocalist Sofia Krigersaxophonist Gustavo D'Amico, and pianist Chase Morrin.

Born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Gustavo D’Amico earned a scholarship at Berklee College of Music in Boston, where he studied with Greg Osby, George Garzone, Ed Tomassi, Terri Lyne Carrington, Hal Crook, among others. He went on to enter a master's program at the New England Conservatory and was a member of the 2014-2015 Wild Card Honors Ensemble called Alfaia Quartet along with pianist and fellow Brazilian Henrique Eisenmann, Syrian oud player Kenan Adnawi, and American bassist Kirsten Lamb. The following year he was a member of the 2015-2016 Jazz Honors Ensemble coached by Dominique Eade.

Chase Morrin, a native of San Diego, is a pianist, composer and arranger who is well versed in classical and jazz idioms. He graduated from the New England Conservatory in 2016 with a Masters in Jazz Composition. Chase recently performed for Journeys in Sound as a member of Gapi, his colloaboration with Korean gayageum player Do Yeon Kim. He is a true music adventurer.

Also on the program is the very eclectic classically trained violinist Elinor Speirs, who will bring her Brazilian Violin Collective. Elinor has played the Journeys in Sound series a number of times and always astounds people with her versatility with numerous musical styles and her beautiful tone. Always open to various musics of the world, Elinor recently played a recital at NEC that focused on Brazilian music, something she dearly loves.

The Elinor Speirs Brazilian Violin Collective will be performing works by Brazilian violinists Nicolas Krassik and Ricardo Herz, as well as composition greats Dominguinhos, Gilberto Gil, João Lyra and Hermeto Pascoal.
