Description

Music of the Americas presents legendary Brazilian jazz musician Egberto Gismonti in a rare solo performance at Peter Norton Symphony Space. Gismonti, widely recognized as one of Brazil's most influential musicians, has a five-decade career that spans from jazz to music for film and ballet. His work reflects the musical diversity of Brazil. London Jazz News writes: "He plays with intensity, holding the audience in rapt attention and hardly daring to breathe until the release and applause at the end of each piece. He can be whimsical, humorous, explosive; and of course virtuosic...the music simply flows, engrossing and entrancing."
