About The Event

Combining the worlds of Brazilian music and jazz in a chamber music setting, these three instrumentalists have produced a body of work that blends the swinging exuberance, virtuosity, and charm of Brazil’s varied rhythms along with the country's characteristic tender lyricism; mix all this with the spontaneous discoveries of Jazz improvisation and you have a unique trio. The repertoire of original compositions and arrangements by Freire and Godoy covers the entire range of traditional and modern Brazilian genres. Although some might expect such a group to also include bass and percussion, Amilton Godoy's amazing left hand rules out any disappointment in this area; he is a one-man rhythm section!

Hermeto Pascoal: “For me, Amilton is one of the best pianists in the land; always has been and always will be!”

João Bosco: “Amilton is one of the greats in the history of our music.”

Egberto Gismonti calls Léa “a strong reminder of a Brazil that so many wish for, including myself.”

Singer/composer Joyce Moreno, commenting on Léa’s group Vento em Madeira, praises “the repertoire, mostly written by the amazing Léa Freire, a hidden Brazilian treasure to be discovered.”

Ivan Lins says “Harvey understands Brazilian music in a way that’s very unusual; he’s got the spirit, he’s a great musician!”

Joe Lovano: “It’s a pleasure to listen to Harvey’s soulful interpretations.”
