Producer Pat Philips continues to establish Birdland as the home of Brazilian music in NYC, bringing together vocalist, guitarist, composer and Brazilian music legends Joyce (Moreno), Dori Caymmi, with the premier NYC-based Brazilian music ensemble, Trio Da Paz (guitarist Romero Lubambo, bassist Nilson Matta, and drummer Duduka da Fonseca). A Stratta Philips Production.

Joyce Moreno, known simply as Joyce, is a second generation Bossa Nova vocalist and composer mentored by Antonio Carlos Jobim, who grew up listening to Joao Gilberto. One of Joyce’s hit songs, “Essa Muhler,” was recorded by the great Ellis Regina. Others including “Feminina” and “Mesterios” combined the jazz influences of Benny Goodman, Frank Sinatra, Dave Brubeck, and The Modern Jazz Quartet with the sounds of her Brazilian contemporaries Marcos Valle, Edo Lobos, and Joao Donato.

Dori Caymmi, son of one of Brazil’s most important Composers, Dorival Caymmi, has become one of Brazil’s most popular composer/arranger/vocalists with many award-winning songs to his credit including, “Saudade de Amar,” which won the first of several Grammy® Awards. Dori has performed with Antonio Carlos Jobim, Quincy Jones, Dionne Warwick, Gilberto Gil, Sarah Vaughan, and Ivan Lins at the world’s greatest venues including Carnegie Hall and The Hollywood Bowl.

Before coming together to form one of the premier Brazilian ensembles in jazz, the members of Trio da Paz travelled in far and wide musical circles: Guitarist Romero Lubambo played with Diane Reeves, Michael Brecker, Grover Washington Jr., and Kathleen Battle; Bassist Nilson Matta performed with Joe Henderson, Don Pullen, Yo-Yo Ma, and Paul Winter; and drummer Duduka da Fonseca played with Antonio Carlos Jobim, John Scofield, Tom Harrell, and more.
