in de kerk
Mario Bakuna is coming to Ruigoord with a special program
Zondag 16 juni is er een bijzondere jazzmiddag, zeker met een braziliaans tintje. De kerk is open vanaf 2 uur, de band speelt rond 4 uur.
Getz/Gilberto is an album by American saxophonist Stan Getz and Brazilian guitarist João Gilberto, featuring pianist and composer Antônio Carlos Jobim (Tom Jobim), who also composed many of the tracks.
Getz/Gilberto is considered the record that popularized bossa nova worldwide, and was one of the best-selling jazz albums. In 1964 it was featured in Rolling Stone’s and Vibe’s lists of best albums of all time. Getz/Gilberto was widely acclaimed by music critics, who praised Gilberto’s vocals and the album’s bossa nova groove and minimalism. Getz/Gilberto received Grammy Awards for Best Jazz Instrumental Album, Individual or Group and Best Engineered Recording – Non-Classical; it also became the first non-American album to win one for Album of the Year, in 1965.

In addition to developing new arrangements of music by enshrined Brazilian artists as Tom Jobim, Paulo Moura, and João Donato, in recent years he has been focussing to reinterpretations of Samba Jazz – a music that emerged in Rio de Janeiro in the 50s and was pioneered by musicians like Luiz Eça, Tamba Trio, Edson Machado, among others. Their repertoire was based on Brazilian standards with more sophisticated harmonies, inspired on the post-Bossa Nova movement.
Giuliano Pereira studied in Brazil and moved to New York where he pursued intensive studies with the saxophone virtuoso Dave Liebman. After returning to Brazil where he continued to play, arrange for numerous jazz artists and Brazilian popular singers, Pereira headed to Europe, settled in Madrid in 2007 and began collaborating with acclaimed artists such as the Spanish National Jazz Orchestra and Jorge Pardo, known first and foremost for his work with flamenco legend Paco De Lucia and jazz great Chick Corea. Hailing from a musical family in Brazil, Pereira has devoted himself to creating his own unique compositional signature and a style of performance that reflects a fusion of global influences, from western jazz to traditional Brazilian folk music.
