Jazz Guitarist Jules Hay Asks “Where Next?”



British jazz fusion guitarist Jules Hay rounds up an all-star group from the Brazilian state of Paraná for his sophomore album, Where Next? 

What started out as a short-term recording project in Brazil in 2020 saw British jazz-fusion guitarist Jules Hay locked down in South America for more than 18 months during the pandemic.

The subsequent months spent hanging out, playing and recording with local musicians brings him full circle; Where Next? was recorded in Brazil and finished back in the UK, essentially documenting his journey home. 

Jules retains the core of his Brazilian band – Thiago Ueda (keys), Diogo Burka (Bass), Roger Aleixo & Elthon Dias (drums) whilst adding two renowned percussionists in Marcus Cesar (Lee Ritenour, Nathan East) & Maurício Bana to up the rhythmic ante.

Musically, the set of 9 original songs brings together infectious Brazilian rhythms and grooves with a modern jazz fusion sensibility.
