Notes of Hristo Vitchev:
The Hristo Vitchev Quartet is an impressionistic jazz ensemble lead by Bulgarian modern jazz guitarist Hristo Vitchev. Residing in the San Francisco Bay Area since 1998, Hristo has performed with some of the premier musicians in the region and has toured nationally and internationally with a wide variety of formations. The quartet was formed in late 2008 with the goal of showcasing Hristo Vitchev’s completely unique voice as a composer, featuring Brazilian pianist Weber Iago, drummer Mike Shannon, and one of the most original bassist in Northern California; Dan Robbins. Their debut record “Song for Messambria” presents a unique blend of modern jazz (ECM), classical, and Brazilian textures.
