LIVE FROM DIZZY'S CLUB COCA-COLA With Hendrik Meurkens, harmonica; Misha Tsiganov, piano; Alison Wedding, vocals; Adriano Santos, drums; Gabriel Espinosa, bass and vocals
Harmonica master Hendrik Meurkens is popularly considered the successor of Toots Thielemans, and his profound involvement in both jazz and Brazilian music has resulted in a unique and instantly recognizable version of Samba jazz. Meurkens will be joined by bassist and vocalist Gabriel Espinosa, co-creator of Celebrando, 2012’s hit tribute to Brazilian music. They will be accompanied by the rest of Celebrando’s top-notch recording band, and their upbeat fusion of jazz, Brazilian, and soaring vocals is sure to delight.
