America Do Sul Brazilian Jazz:
For nearly twenty years, esteemed Melbourne pianist Sam Keevers together with 2012 Freedman Fellowship Winner Christopher Hale (bass) and Ryan Menezes (drums) have enjoyed a long association through the legendary Melbourne latin-jazz group Los Cabrones – playing music from Cuba, New York and Puerto Rico.
Drawing on influences from the Caribbean, Uruguay, Mexico and Brazil, this trio is joined by Jacqueline Gawler, an extraordinary singer, songwriter and percussionist who has spent time living and recording in Rio de Janeiro with some of Brazil’s finest musicians.
Expect to hear irresistible songs from ‘Ambrosia’, samba, bossa nova, cha cha and deep, fiery grooves that will ignite your senses! Drawing inspiration from artists such as Sergio Mendes, Antonio Carlos Jobim, João Gilberto, Rosa Passos, Milton Nascimento and Jorge Ben Jor as well as muses such as Sesame Street, Iemanjá (Goddess of the Ocean) and beachside paradise Ipanema, this band is a pure celebration of the latin spirit delivered with joyful mastery…
‘One of the most pleasant surprises of the year comes from [Australia] and her name is Jacqueline Gawler…Her album is a delicious mix of beautiful ballads, world music, mature arrangements and powerful lyrics. Her voice ranges from delicate, almost childlike, to jazzy seductress…’ A Vida De Solteiro (lifestyle magazine), BRAZIL
