[cancelled due to poor ticket sales]
Maucha Adnet

In 1964, the song “The Girl from Ipanema” written by Antônio Carlos Jobim and performed by Astrud Gilberto, João Gilberto and Stan Getz became an international hit, captivating the world with Brazil’s thrilling new sound: Bossa Nova.

The music captured the allure of youth, beauty, hope and the rhythm of Rio de Janeiro with a fresh jazz take on Brazil’s honored musical tradition, the samba, making it more intimate and sophisticated. People fell in love with it, and the Bossa Nova craze exploded.

We’re bringing back that excitement to celebrate the artistry of three of the past’s most brilliant musicians: Antônio Carlos Jobim, João Gilberto and Stan Getz with master Brazilian musicians Romero Lubambo on guitar, Helio Alves on piano, Nilson Matta on bass, Duduka da Fonseca on drums and singer Maucha Adnet. On tenor saxophone, taking the place of Stan Getz, is the eloquent Harry Allen completing this amazing sextet celebrating the great music of Brazil.

"Romero is the best Brazilian guitarist there is." — Herbie Mann.

“Harry Allen’s playing is nothing less than perfect.” — John Pizzarelli

Singer & Simpson Productions proudly presents
5 time Grammy Nominee KARRIN ALLYSON
a "singer with a feline touch and impeccable intonation.” —NY Times

 

 

Dehner Franks

 

 

Karrin Allyson is an internationally acclaimed singer, pianist, composer, teacher, and bandleader. She is noted for her warm and exciting sound, and large breadth of repertoire, which embraces The Great American Songbook, Brazilian Bossa Nova, French Chansons and the great composers. She has an uncanny ability to ‘get inside’ a lyric — to take over a song and reshape it into something magical while accompanying herself on the piano.

“Word to the wise: Always see Karrin Allyson when she comes to town. She is a delight.” —Scott Yanow, JAZZ AROUND TOWN, December, 2021

Straight from a 5 night/10 show appearance at Birdland Jazz Club in New York City, Karrin Allyson will be performing at The Tuscan Room with bassist Tim Emmons. Tim Emmons is a veteran of more than 300 film, record and television scores including Mission: Impossible, and the Wedding Planner. He has performed live with Liza Minelli and Natalie Cole. He’s recorded with Stevie Wonder and Barbara Streisand.

Allyson’s songs “shimmer with tender vibrancy.” —Christopher Loudon, VOX
