The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis and guitarist/composer/arranger Mario Adnet come together to perform the music of the late Moacir Santos, one of Brazil’s most important musicians and prolific composers. Santos’ work illuminated the soul of Brazil, creating a truly national music, which has been recorded extensively by hundreds of artists.
Melding Afro-Latin influences with improvisation and jazz harmony helped make Santos a genuinely original voice in Brazilian music. Santos was orphaned at an early age, and taken in by a family who helped him take music lessons. He continued to learn the music of Brazil throughout his formative years, garnering an encyclopedic musical knowledge. As a respected educator, Santos mentored some of Brazil’s most established artists, including Adnet, who produced two well-received albums of Santos’ compositions. Though late to receive proper international acclaim, Santos’ name continues to reach newfound celebrity among generations of Brazilian musicians and music fans worldwide.
Cyro Baptista will be joining the orchestra on percussion for these concerts.

Free pre-concert discussion nightly, 7pm
