Rogerio Souza Brazilian Quartet
Guitarist and composer Rogerio Souza has traveled the world bringing the sounds of authentic Brazilian instrumental music to appreciative audiences far and wide. Annual tours to both U.S. coasts have included sold out shows in Washington, D.C. and on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, but this is his first appearance in Historic Annapolis. This concert offers classic styles such as choro, samba, bossa and baião in a refreshing and entertaining way. A respected composer himself, Souza introduces listeners to great composers like Pixinguinha, Radames Gnattalli, Baden Powell and Paulinho da Viola. He’ll also pay tribute to Jacob do Bandolim. Born Jacob Pick Bittencourt, the mandolinist was the most influential composer and performer of modern choro. His virtuosity on the Brazilian mandolin, the “bandolim,” garnered him the nickname Jacob do Bandolim.
Sousa’s group features some of Brazil’s finest musical ambassodors: guitarist Edinho Gerber and virtuoso seven-string bassist Leonardo Lucini, along with American clarinetist Andy Connell. The concert is presented by Jazz Beyond Borders as part of Elana Byrd’s “Intimate Jazz” series at 49 West.
