Entremundos Quarteto CD Release
EntreMundos Quarteto is releasing its second CD titled "O Caminho do Bem". Come celebrate this milestone with us! The new album features an exciting collection of music that pays homage to some of the most beloved composers from Brazil and it includes guest performances by other Seattle talent such as Brian Monroney (guitar), Jerome Smith (trombone) and @Philip A. Peterson (cello). EntreMundos Quarteto is a high-energy, infectiously joyful band that infuses traditional Brazilian music with jazz, funk, soul and world influences. EntreMundos Quarteto features our wonderful Brazilian vocalist; Adriana Giordano along with Eric Verlinde on piano/keyboard, Dean Schmidt on electric bass and Jeff Busch on drum-kit, percussion and vocals.

What we're about

Do you know who Miles Davis is? You must also know that Bird, Trane and Cannonball are not politicians. How about Charles Mingus, Max Roach or Chick Corea? Maybe you have LP's of Oscar Peterson, J.J. Johnson or Stan Kenton or possibly Don Cherry? If this is you, you must be part of an exceptional crowd that seeks-out the solid groove or the smokin' jam session, where the sounds are cool and the standards are hot. Perhaps you are of the Latin side of jazz where Tito Puente and Poncho Sanchez moves your being. Did I see you at the Maraca and The New Collective concert at SPSCC? Or Maybe it's hearing Night and Day by Sinatra or A-Tisket, A-Tasket by Ella or perhaps Tenderly by Sarah Vaughan or Honeysuckle Rose by Joe Williams? Now you don't have to go all the way to the Lincoln Center to see Wynton Marsalis or the Village Vanguard to hear the Maria Schneider Big Band. We've got the local jazz scene right here in Olympia. Sometimes Seattle is just too far to go and I-5 can be a real headache. Sadly, the IAJE conventions are now long gone but fortunately for us, the jazz party starts here. Did you know there are about 50-Olympia based jazz musicians and vocalists who perform right here in our local community? It's time to get the word out! Come join us to create a community where the music thrives, the musicians jam and the cultured gather to support Olympia live jazz. We are your classic jazz connection in Olympia!
