Event Description


October 22

Fleurine Featuring Boys from Brazil

Fleurine                                                             Vocalist, Fleurine, delivers an impressive international resume, transforming pop into jazz, exploring Cuban & Brazilian music and creating lyrics for the music of Joshua Redmond and Thelonious Monk. Fleurine and husband, Brad Mehldau collaborate with some frequency.
Fleurine has always infused her work with a great deal of Brazilian music, but on her most recent project she delves even deeper into Brazil, featuring talented Brazilian composers,  jazz guitar virtuoso, Chico Pinheiro and Ian Faquini, who adds a wealth of folkloric Brazilian rhythms. 

"Brazilian chic has nudged its way for two generations into pop and jazz, but few insinuate as distinctively candid and original an interpretation as does vocalist Fleurine. Her tender, personal smile-through the tears lyrics - some in Portuguese, some her translation from Portuguese or original English lyric....pretty, haunting tunes." - Downbeat Magazine

Chico Pinheiro
One of the leading figures in modern Brazilian music. Pinhiero was elected as a ‘RISING STAR’/ Guitar by DOWNBEAT's Annual Critics Poll. Chico has distinguished himself as a guitarist, composer and arranger. He has performed and recorded with the 'cream of the crop' of Brazilian artists, while making his mark internationally with Placido Domingo, Brad Mehldau, Esperanza Spalding, Dianne Reeves, The Seasons Guitar Quartet (w/ Anthony Wilson, Julian Lage & Steve Cardenas), Cachaíto Lopez (Buena Vista Social Club), Chris Potter, Eddie Gomez, as an example.
Pinheiro's latest album "There's a Storm Inside", features his compositions and vocals. 
Imagine a young Chet Baker, with Luiz Bonfa's chops and Marcos Valle's aching sense of melody - a record to surrender to.

Opener: Ian Faquini​
Twenty-six year old Brazilian guitar player and singer, Faquini, became the mentoree of the legendary Brazilian guitar maestro Guinga, and 
has since become one of the most unique and respected guitar players in the San Francisco Bay Area, demonstrating rare technique and a delicate touch. Ian is currently teaching at the California Conservatory of Music, and touring in support of his second album of orginal compositions "Metal na Madeira".
