Jazz Samba & Jobim

Individually, vocalist Maucha Adnet and pianist Helio Alves boast impressive résumés. She has collaborated with Charlie Byrd, Dori Caymmi, Eliane Elias, Gilberto Gil and Toninho Horta, and spent a decade touring and recording with Antonio Carlos Jobim. He’s partnered with an equally illustrious assortment of artists, including Yo-Yo Ma, Joe Henderson and Paquito D’Rivera. But the two Brazilians’ finest performances, spanning two decades, have been side-by-side.

Drummer/percussionist Duduka Da Fonseca has long been recognized as one of the great masters of Brazilian percussion and has been instrumental in popularizing Brazilian jazz in this country. Duduka has appeared on over 200 albums and performed with artists such as Antonio Carlos Jobim, Astrud Gilberto, Gerry Mulligan, John Scofield, Wayne Shorter, Tom Harrell, Herbie Mann, Joe Henderson, Kenny Barron, Nancy Wilson, and Phil Woods amongst many others. “Duduka’s command of Brazilian and American rhythms and his ability to integrate them so seamlessly is truly innovative.” - Billy Hart.
