Soon afterward, the group has departed to Europe to perform at the North City Jazz Festival, in Kosovo, one of the most important Jazz Festivals of the Eastern Europe on May 18th.
Igor Willcox Quartet released a new album in 2018, the first of the group, called “LIVE!”, which showcases the concert exactly as it is:
“The first Live album of the Brazilian drummer Igor Willcox quartet, captures the spirit of a strongly welded band performing at a high voltage in the most impassioned and interactive way. It features seven original songs along with three compositions by jazz fusion legends such as Allan Holdsworth, Wayne Shorter and Lenny White.
Ten tracks of unexpected, creative interactions resulted from the combined strength of four virtuosi musicians, each of them contributing with their inventive skills to a perfect fusion of musicality and rhythm. “Fans of jazz fusion will enjoy a high-quality album delivered by a phenomenal band fueled by the natural energy of like minds playing as a singular voice”. (Jazz World Quest).
The album also received an excellent review from All About Jazz, one of the most important jazz sites of the world.
