Thrilled to announce this project, brainchild of Maestro Eduardo Marturet‘s Season of the Piano at the Miami Symphony Orchestra, a collaboration with brilliant Brazilian jazz pianist and composer, Andre Mehmari. His music is beautiful, his energy, infectious.
Thanks to school-chum and Percussionist of the Miami Symphony Orchestra, Dexter Dwight, for turning me onto this great artist, and for putting all our heads together.
Here are some of Andre’s great YouTube performances:
Improviso sobre Odeon, Choro pro Zé
Um Anjo Nasce / Hello Goodbye
Morro Velho / Paixão e Fé
Lagoa da Conceição
Famoso (Ernesto Nazareth)
Os Cinco Companheiros
Caymmi and Jobim
