Bossa Nova Wave


It all started in 1962. Antonio Carlos Jobim wrote the songs, “The Girl from Ipanema,” “Corcovado,” and “Wave.” The music spread across North America and it was an explosion of awards and hits. Stan Getz and Charlie Byrd’s famous album “Jazz Samba” (1962) hit #1 on The Billboard Pop Chart. Now the world-renowned artists Ken Peplowski and Diego Figueiredo recreate music from this era, but in their own special way, with the help of Chiara Izza. Diego Figueiredo comes all the way from Brazil and is considered one of the world’s most talented guitar players. Ken Peplowski is one of the leading clarinetists and sax players in jazz today, while award-winning Italian singer/songwriter Chiara Izzi has been described by Jazz Times as “a talent to be heard, admired and anticipated.” Don’t miss this world-class trio!
