South Florida JAZZ celebrates Brazilian jazz

Antonio Adolfo-Carol Saboya Group
from Rio de Janeiro.
The instrumental quintet plus vocalist,
Ms. Saboya, is making a command performance
after their acclaimed appearance in 2009.
South Florida’s premier modern jazz organization is privileged to present pianist Antonio Adolfo and his quintet with the addition of vocalist Carol Saboya playing their inimitable and authentic brand of Brazilian jazz. The band has back-to-back hit records with the latest in 2011, Chora Baião, having garnered five Latin Jazz Corner awards.
This concert takes place at the 500-seat Rose & Alfred Miniaci Performing Arts Center on the Nova Southeastern University campus,
3100 Ray Ferrero, Jr Blvd
in Davie 33314. Tickets are $40 ($30 for South Florida JAZZ members and $15 for students under age 25 with I.D.) and may be purchased from the Broward Center Box Office by calling 954.462.0222, option #4 in Broward County; also toll-free at 877-311-SHOW, as well as online at:, the presenting organization’s official Web site.
Antonio Adolfo – Carol Saboya Group:Carol Saboya, the beautiful and enchanting girl from Ipanema with the sweet voice and impeccable intonation, is the daughter of pianist-composer-arranger Antonio Adolfo, one of Brazil’s most revered performers and educators. This rare South Florida appearance comes after enormously successful 2011 release of Chora Baião, which follows in the footsteps of their Latin Grammy-nominated 2010 CD Lá e Cá/Here and There. This band returns by demand after their sensational 2009 concert for South Florida JAZZ.
Pianist Antonio Adolfo has been among the elite of Rio de Janeiro’s jazz scene for decades, where his talent was nurtured with the bossa nova movement of the 1960s. Soon, he was touring with legendary Brazilian singers, including Elis Regina and Milton Nascimento. Today, Adolfo is a master of Brazilian song. A renowned teacher, he established a prominent music conservatory, Centro Musical Antonio Adolfo, several years ago in Rio, now run by his two daughters. He now is the director of the Antonio Adolfo School of Music in Hollywood, Florida. Antonio, of course, is a first-class performer and perhaps even better known as songwriter. Herb Alpert, Sergio Mendes, Stevie Wonder, Earl Klugh and Dionne Warwick have all have performed or recorded Antonio’s compositions.
Singer Carol Saboya, Adolfo’s daughter, has seven solo CDs and several critically acclaimed performances in New York, Miami, the Hollywood Jazz Festival, and New Orleans – she’s well on her way to making her own mark, as her father has done before her. Her debut CD, Dança Da Voz, won Brazil’s coveted Sharp Premio award for Best New Pop Singer. The trifecta of Au Vivo Live, Lá e Cá, and now Chora Baiao have raised Carol and Antonio’s international profiles dramatically.
Chora Baião garnered a number of Latin Jazz Awards for 2011: Brazilian Jazz Album of the Year, Latin Jazz Album of the Year, and also Latin Jazz Album Artwork of the Year. Additionally, Antonio Adolfo was named Latin Jazz Pianist of the Year.

Jazz music should be fun and Matt Wilson, the clown prince of drumming makes it ebullient, entertaining, and eminently delightful. No drummer has ever expressed the pure joy of making music and had the abundant talent of Matt Wilson or has been this sought after, as his resume obviously displays. Add the pure trumpet of Terell Stafford, the versatility and originality of organist Gary Versace, and the solid propulsion of bassist Martin Wind and you have Arts & Crafts - a band with a groove and a style of its own.

featuring Antonio Sanchez with Special Guest Stefon Harris
Tenor saxophonist David Sanchez (Puerto Rico), pianist Edward Simon (Venezuela), and spectacular drummer Antonio Sanchez (Mexico) are Latin musicians who play jazz, rather than musicians who play Latin jazz, a major distinction. While the music might be flavored by their heritage, it definitely will be serious, original jazz. Forget labels. Stefon Harris, Jazz Journalists Association Mallet Player of the Year, appears as a special guest, which means the band will be en fuego!

For the past 10 years The Bad Plus have created an uncompromising body of work by shattering musical convention. The New York Times said the band is "better than anyone at mixing the sensibilities of post-'60s jazz and indie rock." Few jazz groups in recent memory have amassed such acclaim, and few have generated as much controversy while audaciously bucking musical trends. While the bulk of their output has been originals, they have famously deconstructed covers in the pop, rock, electronic and classical idioms. Their belief in a band ethos and "avant-garde populism" has placed them at the forefront of a new instrumental music movement resulting in ever-larger audiences.
