DJM Big Band feat. Jovino Santos Neto
Rytmisk Sal kl. 17.00
Til RAMA 2018 samarbejder DJM Bigband med den brasilianske pianist og komponist Jovino Santos Neto. Jovino har i mange år arbejdet tæt sammen med legenden Hermeto Pascoal, og det er bl.a. hans musik, som danner rammen for dette års RAMA koncert, hvor bigbandet som sædvanligt vil være i absolut topform.
Orkestrets daglige leder er docent Jens Chr. “Chappe” Jensen.
Three-time Latin Grammy nominee Jovino Santos Neto, a master pianist, composer and arranger, is among the top Brazilian musicians working today. Currently based in Seattle, Washington, he has throughout his career been closely affiliated with the Brazilian master Hermeto Pascoal. He was an integral part of Pascoal’s group from 1977 to1992, where he fine-tuned his artistry, performing around the world and co-producing several legendary records. Jovino’s personal style is a creative blend of energetic grooves, deep harmonies, telepathic improvisation, lyrical melodies and great ensemble playing, always inspired and informed by the colorful richness of Brazilian music. His compositions include samba, choro, baião, xote, forró, marcha and many more styles, rooted in centuries-old musical tradition while pointing to new and adventurous harmonic languages.
Currently, Jovino leads his Seattle-based Quinteto and teaches piano and composition at Cornish College of the Arts. He can also be heard around the world as a piano soloist, working with symphony orchestras, jazz big bands, chamber music groups, and in collaboration with musicians such as his mentor Hermeto Pascoal, Bill Frisell, Paquito d’Rivera, Airto Moreira, Claudio Roditi, David Sanchez, Joe Locke, Marco Granados and many more.
