I was thrilled to be the special guest at the Prosper Bank/Armazem Digital weekly jazz series, produced by Carol Paris. I got to sing and play with a great band of Rio jazz regulars, as well as being joined on a few tunes by Vanderlei and our dear friend Mark Lambert. We had a blast! (pictures coming soon . . .)
Deepest thanks to all our fans who came out to Cornelia St. last night! We had a sold-out show and a line of people waiting outside! I apologize to all who did not get in and hope to see you at another show soon!

WOW! Performing at Jazzmandu 2009 with Trio Urbano was an incredible experience! We met fantastic musicians from all over the world and played at wonderful venues. The most magical performance was the Jazz in Patan show--a musical fusion in the best sense of the word, held in the courtyard of a museum on Patan's Durbar Square. All the Jazzmandu musicians joined forces with local Nepali musicians for an unforgettable evening. Nepal and its people are amazing!
The wonderful and always interesting MUG (Manhattan Users Group) Newsletter has featured Susan Pereira and Sabor Brasil for the SECOND time! We were recommended in their "Brazilian Dossier" issue. Thanks, MUG!
