21-03-2014 12:00:00 22-03-2014 12:00:00 America/New_York Beyond Jobim: New Voices of Brazil Lead vocalists Luisa Maita and Clarice Assad present their personal refractions of the various streams of Brazilian musical expression. Named for the protagonist of Tom Jobim's iconic "Ana Luisa" and thoroughly rooted in the Great Brazilian Songbook, Maita offers a 21st century take on the tropes of samba and bossa nova, and was recognized as "Best New Artist" at the 22nd annual Brazilian Music Awards. A visionary composer and virtuoso pianist who draws on Heitor Villa-Lobos and Hermeto Pascoal in equal measure, and an overall practitioner of vocalese, Assad is as comfortable performing with a symphony orchestra as with her ancient-to-future unit Off The Cliff, which, as she puts it, "uses different combinations of instruments from song to song so that it never sounds the same." http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=135927 Jazz at Lincoln Center Jazz at Lincoln Center
