December 9 & 10, 2016 8:00 & 10:00PM Minas Revisits the Classic Getz/Gilberto Album
Minas will pay homage to the classic album Getz/Gilberto, one of the most successful and revered jazz albums of all time. Minas, who was indicated for 4 Grammy Awards in 2015, will perform as an quintet: Orlando Haddad (guitar, vocals), Patricia King (piano, vocals), Jim Stager (bass), Tom Cohen (drums), and featuring saxophonist Andrew Neu.
Minas has been synonymous with Brazilian music in Philadelphia for over 3 decades. With 6 CDs to its credit, international Minas has been performing under its name since 1978, making it one of the most sought-after Brazilian groups in the United States today. Their interpretations of Bossa Nova, specifically the music of Antonio Carlos Jobim, are not only authentic, but their own. Featuring Orlando Haddad and Patricia King, the husband/wife duo reflects three decades of vocal and instrumental blending. Andrew Neu and Minas have collaborated numerous times and their chemistry was right from day one. Andrew’s Stan Getz renditions not only bring Getz to mind, but are also his own. Neu has shared the stage with Sir Elton John, Patti Labelle, Mellissa Manchester, Mel Torme, Diane Schurr, Bobby Caldwell, The Philadelphia Orchestra, The Four Tops, and The Temptations.
