Wazmopolitans Play Bossa!
Friday, September 28, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm$7
Jazz Bossa!! Bossa Nova came to America like a cool but powerful force in the 60s era of blues-drenched pop, hard bop, and avant-garde jazz. It entered our consciousness through the music of Stan Getz, Charlie Byrd, Bud Shank, Sonny Rollins, and many others. Bossa was an expression of a relationship between Brazilian and American jazz of the 50s – it was rebel music that called for a more peaceful and gentle approach to life. It represented a “cooling’ of samba from carnival to coffeehouses.
The Wazmopolitans will feature some jazz samba and jazz bossa classics and music of the originators of the music; Antonio Carlos Jobim and Joao Gilberto, who helped bossa develop and brought it to the US.
David “The Waz” Wasik – drums, Jack Kulp – bass, Kevin Doyle – piano.
