Inside Jazz: The Rich History of Brazilian Jazz, with Jesse “Chuy” Varela (KCSM) - Saturday, July 13, 7:00 p.m., prior to A Night of Brazilian Jazz: Trio da Paz with Maúcha Adnet
These musicians’ early collaborators read like a Who’s Who of Brazilian music and American jazz: Jobim, Astrud Gilberto, Ivan Lins, Lee Konitz, John Scofield, Michael Brecker. By the time the trio joined forces, in 1990, they had the confidence and technical mastery to transform the traditional trio into a samba powerhouse. Says NPR jazz critic Howard Mandel, “If North Americans hadn’t invented jazz, then surely Brazilians such as the three talented men in Trio da Paz would have invented something like it.” Add to the mix the gorgeous vocals of Maúcha Adnet—the singer Antonio Carlos Jobim chose for his own music in his own band—and you’ve got the makings of a night to remember.
