ALBUM BY SAM MARTINELLI WITH KEN PEPLOWSKI
Sam Martinelli, "one of the most talented musicians to come out of Brazil in recent years" (Claudio Roditi), is joining forces with Ken Peplowski, lauded as "arguably the greatest living jazz clarinetist!" (Russell Davis BBC2), to bring forth a
new album, ‘Jazz Meets the Great Brazilian Songbook’
The album is a celebration and exploration of the classics from the Brazilian music repertoire, in a fusion of samba, bossa nova, and other Brazilian rhythms, and the spontaneous world of Jazz.
Featuring Ehud Asherie on piano, Martin Wind on bass, and Carina Calistro on vocals, the result is a reimagining of the Great Brazilian Songbook through the free-spirited lens of Jazz.
