25 January, 2010 at Yoshi's @ 8 pm. Oakland, CA

Hristo Vitchev is a modern jazz guitarist and composer from Sofia, Bulgaria. Now residing in the San Francisco Bay Area, Hristo leads his modern (ECM) jazz quartet which features Brazilian (Grammy nominated) pianist Weber Iago, drummer extraordinaire Joe De Rose, and the completely amazing bassist Dan Robbins. The Hristo Vitchev Quartet’s debut album "Song for Messambria" received outstanding reviews by the international jazz community and was selected as one of the six best jazz albums of this year by E-Jazz News.

As jazz critic Edward Blanco describes: “Vitchev is the newest guitarist to enter the national jazz scene and does so with a stunner of a recording in “Song For Messambria,” one of the finest debut albums I've had the pleasure of appraising this year.”

On January 25th the Hristo Vitchev Quartet will present their completely unique sonic signature featuring compositions from the critically acclaimed album “Song for Messambria” , as well as material from their electrifying up-coming record. This night will also mark the official release of Hristo Vitchev and Weber Iago’s brand new duet recording “The Secrets of an Angel.” - featuring some of the most intimate guitar/piano playing.

As jazz critic Brad Walseth describes: "On the heels of his impressive debut recording - Song for Messambria, guitarist Hristo Vitchev returns along with pianist Weber Iago for a wonderful guitar/piano duet recording - The Secrets of an Angel." "...while the gentle title track shimmers like a glistening iceberg on a cold sea. The delightful two-part "The Last Pirate" is a highlight - brilliantly showcasing the exciting romantic bend inherent in Vitchev's music, while the the nostalgic lullaby "Leka Nosht (Good Night)" recalls a faraway youth and rounds out this fine release."
