New Orleans Meets Rio de Janeiro
Friday, September 6, 2019, 7:30p.m.
Internationally renowned American jazz pianist Peter Martin joins master Brazilian guitarist Romero Lubambo, for New Orleans Meets Rio de Janeiro – a unique engaging performance merging New Orleans style jazz piano with the bossa nova rhythms of Rio de Janeiro. With New Orleans’ deep roots in Latin American music, this is a natural, yet progressive extension of the musical language. “Guitarist Romero Lubambo may be the best practitioner of his craft in the world today… [his] facility, creativity and energy are in a class all their own. “ (Jazziz Magazine). Peter Martin’s artistry is nothing short of extraordinary. To sing with him is sublime – To listen to him play is a transcendent experience.
