Great guitar/piano duo combining Brazilian music and American jazz
December 8, 2018
Check out Muphen Whitney’s newest Podcast about this upcoming show:
Minas (http://minasmusic.com/) takes Brazilian and American roots to create a sound that is fresh and innovative, from ballads tinged with melancholic traits of Blues and Choro, to Folk coasting on the subtle coolness of a Bossa Nova pulse, to upbeat Sambas elaborated with instrumental jazz improvisation, scat singing and whimsical whistling. With recordings of original music and a collection of over 100 songs, Orlando and Patricia’s compositions have been compared to classics by Cole Porter and Antonio Carlos Jobim. Capturing the essence of great songwriting with memorable melodies, inventive harmonies, and poetic lyrics, the music of Minas is engaging and timeless.
We welcome MINAS back for another fun program of Brazilian-inspired jazz. Patricia and Orlando are a fantastic husband and wife guitar/piano duo who always put on a great show. I will hopefully make some of my Brazilian cheese bread to add to the festivities. Seating is limited and by reservation only. Light food and drinks are included.
