This Weekend!
Nilson Matta's Samba Meets Jazz!
Feat. Dave Stryker (Fri.), Eric Alexander (Sat.)

Nilson Matta, a bassist best known for his work with Trio da Paz, presides over a flexible ensemble dedicated to the music of his native Brazil. Matta has developed his own musical signature making him a first-call bass player of Brazilian music and jazz musicians.  Therefore, it’s not surprising that when Yo Yo Ma sought band members for his Brazilian project, Nilson was the obvious choice for bass. A founding member of two internationally acclaimed groups – Trio Da Paz (Romero Lubambo, Duduka de Fonseca, drums) and Brazilian Trio (Helio Alves, piano; Duduka de Fonseca, drums) – Matta has emerged in recent years as bandleader, composer, arranger and producer. See Nilson Matta's Samba Meets Jazz with Fabiana Masili, vocals, Helio Alves, piano, Marcello Pellitteri, drums and  featuring guitarist Dave Stryker (Fri.) and tenor saxophonist Eric Alexander (Sat.) on Feb. 23 & 24 at 7 & 9 pm both nights!

Sunday Evening Jazz Series!
Akira Tana & Otonowa Quartet

Drummer Akira Tana has a gilt-edged jazz pedigree: Harvard, the New England Conservatory and stints with Sonny Rollins, Sonny Stitt, Hubert Laws, and James Moody. He and bassist Rufus Reid have had a rich partnership – five CDs and touring to match. Otonowa Quartet brings Akira’s consummate musical mastery into congruence with his deep Japanese cultural roots. Otonowa, which means “sound circle”, was formed originally to showcase traditional Japanese songs and pop through jazz arrangements. 2011’s terrible earthquake and tsunami in Japan became a crucible for Otonowa, which launched this brotherhood of Japanese-American jazz luminaries into a program of touring and recording to raise both funds and spirits for the survivors. Hear Akira Tana & Otonowa Quartet at the Jazz Forum on Sunday, Mar. 11!
