Drummer and composer Mauricio Zottarelli has been on the forefront of the jazz, Latin, and Brazilian music scenes for quite some time. Coming from a musical family, he was born in Santos, SP, Brazil, but moved with his parents to their hometown, Rio Claro, SP, as a toddler. Surrounded by the city's and country's rich music and cultural traditions, he grew up in an intense musical environment, and it was just a matter of time before he chose a career in music - or as he puts it, music chose him.

CHECK OUT THE MAURICIO ZOTTARELLI QUINTET PERFORMING LIVE AT THE BLUE NOTE


His first few years as a professional musician consisted of many performances throughout his native country with different Brazilian groups and artists, as well as studio and session work. At the same time, he pursued a degree in computer science, concluding his studies in 1997.

Zottarelli moved to the U.S. in 1999 to study at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA, where he was awarded a scholarship. He majored in film scoring, performance, and arranging, and graduated from the prestigious college in 2002. More recently, he studied Indian music with the South Indian guitar player Prasanna, and he studied piano and composition with renowned jazz instructor Charlie Banacos. He moved to New York City in 2006.

Zottarelli is a critically acclaimed and award-winning drummer and artist. He has participated in more than 60 albums as a drummer and percussionist so far in his career. He is also the co-leader of the jazz-fusion project Dig Trio, which released its first CD in 2003 and has received great reviews from critics and audiences alike. In 2005, he was unanimously elected the best drummer at the 2005 Emergenza International Festival for independent bands (Boston finals).

In 2009, Zottarelli became a member of jazz pianist Hiromi’s super group, Hiromi’s Sonicbloom, and he has traveled the world in support of her album, Beyond Standard. Also in June of the same year, Zottarelli released his first album, entitled 7 Lives, which includes several of his own compositions. The CD features of some of the best names in jazz and Brazilian music performing a unique mix of Brazilian jazz, fusion, and jazz.


Among his many current projects and contributions, Zottarelli performed on the latest recording by the legendary Brazilian pianist Dom Salvador and has been appearing with his group in concerts both in Brazil and USA. Best known for his musicality, impeccable time and groove, his facility on the drum set, and his ability to play in many different styles, Zottarelli also continues to perform with some of the most preeminent jazz, fusion, pop/rock, Latin, and Brazilian names in today's music, both in shows around the U.S. and in tours all around the world. He has worked with Eliane Elias, Marc Johnson, Prasanna, Esperanza Spalding, Cláudio Roditi, Chuck Loeb, Richard Bona, Keiko Matsui, Rosa Passos, Dom Salvador, Jovino Santos Neto, Nilson Matta, Toninho Horta, Filó Machado, Cidinho Teixeira, Hendrik Meurkens, Santi DeBriano, Oriente Lopez, and many others.

The ensemble performing tonight has already performed successfully around the US, including shows on the East Coast, the Northwest, and also in South America, playing the music from 7 Lives as well as original arrangements of classics from the jazz and Brazilian songbooks.
