About The Blue Spot

Classical duo
Cardiff
Public liability insurance of £10 million
The Blue Spot is a piano and double bass duet, that brings together jazz and classical. Two for the price of one.

The Blue Spot is a piano and double bass duet, that brings together jazz and classical. The improvisation is a skill used by musicians since the baroque music, and now it is back in the performances of the duet. The idea of the duet started when Matheus Prado did an audition for the Albert Cooper Charity. In that audition the duet played Brazilian "choros" interpreted as classical music. The panel liked it, and The Blue Spot saw the light. In their repertoire you can find Mendelssohn, Eric Satie, Egberto Gismonti, Paulinho Nogueira, there are also traditional Brazilian folk songs.

The duet performed a nice evening for our birthday party. One set of classical and one set of jazz. Exactly what we wanted.
