An exciting tribute to the pianist and bandleader who popularized Brazilian music in the U.S. From Brasil '66 to 1992's Grammy-winning "Brasileiro" album and beyond, Sergio Mendes has brought his seductive sound to bossa nova, samba, jazz, and pop, introducing us to some of Brazil's best composers, including Edu Lobo, Ivan Lins, and Jorge Ben, and adding his own Brazilian flavor to classics by the Beatles, Bacharach, Stevie Wonder, and more. Join us for a night of tropical music, guaranteed to warm you up and start the holidays off right! With Evelyn Rosenthal & Linda Roberts, vocals; Molly Flannery, piano; Steve Kirby, guitar; Paul Lieberman, flute + sax; Jason Davis, bass; Steve Rose, drums; and Marcus Santos, percussion.
