Jovino Santos Neto, a master pianist and composer, is a Three-time Latin Grammy nominee and one of the foremost Brazilian musicians working today. Jovino’s personal style is a creative blend of energetic grooves, deep harmonies, telepathic improvisation and lyrical melodies, always inspired and informed by the colorful richness of Brazilian music. Jovino leads an award-winning ensemble, and can also be heard as a soloist, working with symphony orchestras, jazz big bands, chamber music groups, and in collaboration with musicians such as Hermeto Pascoal, Bill Frisell, Paquito d’Rivera, Airto Moreira, Claudio Roditi, David Sanchez, Joe Locke and many more. He has been artist in residence at some of the world’s most prestigious music schools, and has received commissions by the Cheswatyr Foundation, IAJE, ASCAP, CMA/Doris Duke Foundation, Jack Straw Foundation, Seattle Arts Commission, 4Culture, Artist Trust and Meet the Composer.
Joining Jovino and Anton are Jeff Busch, a master percussionist and longtime member of Jovino’s ensemble, and bassist Tim Carey, a bright new talent on the Seattle Scene. This will be an evening of dynamic music and contagious fun!
