Described by one of the fathers of the bossa nova as “the biggest expression of Brazilian music in the U.S. today,” pianist and vocalist, Claudia Villela boasts an astounding five-octave range, a distinctive songwriting style and a flair for risk taking that has earned her an enthusiastic following. Last heard at Outpost with guitarist Romero Lubambo in Spring of 2012, she returns for the 9th Annual New Mexico Jazz Festival with a quartet featuring Jeff Buenz, guitar; Gary Brown, bass; and Celso Alberti, drums & percussion.
