BrazJaz Ensemble Live at Jazzlab
Saturday 31 August 2019 9pm
Brazilian drummer & percussionist CARLOS FERREIRA returns to Jazzlab to perform with another version of his band BrazJaz Ensemble.
Founded in Melbourne in 1991 (click here to watch a video clip from the debut gig at the Limerick - a very young Steve Sedergreen was there too!) , Brazjaz has pioneered the introduction of the genuine Samba Jazz to Australian audiences, interpreting the work of composers such as J.T. Meirelles, Moacir Santos, Durval Ferreira, João Donato, as well as Ferreira’s own originals.
This special performance will combine a world-class line-up, featuring CARL MACKEY (Saxophone), GIANNI MARINUCCI (Trumpet), STEVE SEDERGREEN (Piano - original member of the band) and NICK HAYWOOD (Double Bass), with the impressive talent of JACQ GAWLER, nominated for the Best Female Solo & Best Song Composed in the 2015 Australian A Cappella Awards, who will interpret classic MPB (Musica Popular Brasileira = Brazilian Popular Music) songs.
This is your unique opportunity to listen to genuine Samba Jazz genre right here in Melbourne. Jazzlab is a fantastic music venue where you can listen to the music in a comfortable and intimate atmosphere.
This is Samba Jazz at its best.
