With tenor saxophonist/bass clarinetist/flutist Craig Handy, trombonist Jay Ashby, pianist/accordionist Julian Shore, vocalist Fabiana Masili, percussionist Fernando Saci, and bassist/cavaquinho player/percussionist Nilson Matta

Nilson Matta is well known as the world-class bassist of Trio da Paz, but his solo career as a composer and
bandleader is equally noteworthy. His albums are thoughtful aural masterpieces featuring lush harmonies and contemporary Brazilian rhythms. “Brazilian Voyage” is an apt title for tonight’s performance, as Matta’s expert knowledge of Brazilian jazz unfolds as a varied journey through the music’s traditions and contemporary explorations, demonstrating an evolution in which he continues to play a major role.
