The Jovino Santos Neto Trio, featuring Sergio Reze, is headed to Vashon for a concert at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 23, in the Bruce Black Box performance space of Open Space for Arts & Community.
The jazz trio is comprised of celebrated musicians — pianist and composer Jovino Santos Neto, percussionist Sergio Reze, and bassist Tim Carey.
In their concert, dubbed “A Night in Brazil,” the trio will play in a range of Brazilian styles, from traditional to contemporary, choro to baião, samba, samba-jazz, bossa nova and more.
Three-time Latin Grammy-nominee Santos Neto is a Brazilian-born, Seattle-based master pianist and composer. He has toured the world for 40 years, performing with mentor Hermeto Pascoal, Bill Frisell, and Paquito D’Rivera, among other giants of jazz.
Joining him in the concert will be drummer/percussionist Reze, also from Brazil, and renowned for his innovative collaborations with international artists from Andre Mehmari to Patrick Zimmerli.
Tim Carey, who’s made his name as a versatile bass guitarist, completes the trio.
“These three powerful musicians are going to brew up an absolutely stunning night of amazing jazz,” said Open Space co-founder David Godsey. “And the sweet acoustics in the Bruce Black Box create an intimate show — everyone gets an up close and personal experience.”
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for the 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 22 show.
