Tonight from 11pm-1am please join Jassvan de Lima and Augusto Ghiotto as they interview Leny Andrade and Roni Ben-Hur who will be playing later this week at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola in Lincoln Center.
"Leny Andrade is an internationally acclaimed vocalist whom Tony Bennett calls the “Ella Fitzgerald of Brazil.” Her voice is huge and expressive, refreshingly raw and yet always in control. Her partner tonight, Roni Ben-Hur, is a formidable guitarist and a favorite of New York City musicians. Like Andrade, Ben-Hur has deep musical roots in both jazz and the music of Brazil. The duo has performed in public only a few times, and earlier this year they recorded their debut album, the release of which we celebrate tonight. Join us for an intimate performance while this collaboration, now including a Brazilian rhythm section of Itaiguara Brandão and Helio Schiavo, is still somewhat of a “hidden gem.”-Jazz.org
