Blue Whale gig with Lado B Brazilian Project
April 15, 2016
This was my second time playing with Catina DeLuna and Lado B Brazilian Project. They were recently nominated for a Grammy for an arrangement of Garota De Ipanema that we played at the Blue Whale last Saturday.
It is truly an honor to be sharing Brazilian music here whenever I have a chance, and specially with a band like this! Catina DeLuna, vocals and piano; Otmaro Ruiz, piano; Larry Koonse, guitar, Darek Oles, bass; Clarice Cast, percussion, Nick Mancini, vibes. And an incredible group of vocalists to add so much to the beautiful pieces we played.
Now I'm getting ready to play with another group of talented Brazilians here in Los Angeles. Brazilian Women, A Celebration is a great show that talks about what is like being a Brazilian women (for real though), in the lens of Brazilian Women themselves. With poetry, music, literature, all by inspiring Brazilian female artists.
See you soon!!!
