UTZ is the brainchild of Renato Baccarat, a Brazilian living in Brussels. Along with some kindred spirits (Al Davidson - flute, Marc De Vreese - trumpet, Thomas Champagne - saxophone, Sebastien Van Hoey - trombone, Dorian Palos - bass and Yves Peeters - drums), he founded a Brazilian-inspired band and recorded 'Miniatura!'. One could describe UTZ as a Brazilian jazz rock band, but Brazilian genres like samba and bossa nova also pop up on 'Miniatura!' and 'Pirata' even has a nice reggae rhythm!
