World Music Wednesday: André Mehmari Trio
January 16 @ 8:30 pm
There is something special about the sound of the piano trio that propels master pianists to another level. The trios of Keith Jarrett and Brad Mehldau – to whom Brazilian pianist André Mehmari is often likened – provide evidence of the power of piano trio alchemy.
Mehmari now brings forth his trio – bassist Neymar Dias and drummer Sérgio Reze – to explore the work of Clube de Esquina. Led by Milton Nascimento, this group of Brazilian artists blended ideas from pop, folk music, bossa nova, jazz, and classical avant-garde to create hymns honoring friendship and dialogue that are among the greatest treasures of Brazilian music.
