Quatro na Bossa
Quatro na Bossa
Mon Apr 6 @ 7:30pm
$10 advance / $15 day of

Join Quatro na Bossa for a night celebrating the composer and poet Tom Jobim. Jobim was one of the most influential and prolific composers of Brazilian music in the 20th century. Our program will consist of some of his most famous songs (Girl from Ipanema, Waters of March) as well as explore his vast canon of lesser known but equally compelling work.

***

Kevin Harding and Laura Ann Singh formed Quatro na Bossa in 2003 from a shared interest in the history of Brazilian popular music. Bassist Rusty Farmer and drummer and composer Scott Clark complete the quartet. Originally exploring compositions from the era of bossa nova (ca.1960), they now play from a large list of Brazilian songs from different regions and time periods.

Kevin has had lessons with Brazilian guitarists Romero Lubambo and Toninho Horta, and in Rio de Janeiro with choro guitarist Bilinho Teixeira, and Laura Ann studied with vocalist Fabiana Cozza in Sao Paulo. In addition to gigging in Virginia and the DC area, the quartet has performed many times at Dizzys Club Coca Cola (Jazz at Lincoln Center), with guests Nilson Matta, Maucha Adnet, Romero Lubambo, Rogerio Boccato, and Harry Allen. Also in New York, they recorded their first album, Summer Samba, for the Japanese label Venus Records, with collaborators Adriano Santos (drums) and Rodrigo Ursaia (saxophone and flute). In the fall of 2012, the quartet released their second CD, Bossa Nossa with drummer Rogerio Boccato. They are currently working on their third recording. 

Quatro na Bossa hopes to illuminate the power of Brazilian popular music to traverse boundaries of language and culture, place and time.
