The Bossa Nova music of Getz and Gilberto 

Singer VéroniqueJoly and saxophonist Terry Quinney present a new quartet which plays the cool bossa nova sounds of Stan Getz and Astrud and Joao Gilberto. The group also features Rob Palmer on acoustic guitar and RodneyTeague on bass.

Saxophonist Stan Getz and guitarist João Gilberto recorded their iconic “Getz/Gilberto” album in 1964, playing the music of Brazilian composer Antonio Carlos Jobim. The album also features the vocals of Astrud Gilberto; her crystal clear vocal style, with the softly lilting rhythms of the bossa nova, enchanted a generation.

Parisian born singer Véronique Joly started performing live at the age of seventeen, working in the Paris music scene before moving to London in 1992. She has been involved in many diverse projects: co-writing and recording a song for the BBC programme ‘Rick Stein: French Odyssey’, adapting a song into French for Tony Coleman’s drum n’ bass label, Hospital Records and providing vocals for the movie Night Dragon. She sings in English, French and Portuguese.

Saxophonist Terry Quinney has quickly established himself on the British jazz scene since arriving here a few years ago from Canada, As co-leader of the ‘The Sound Of Blue Note’ band he has performed with UK jazz icons such as Nigel Price, Ian Shaw, Alan Barnes and Gilad Atzmon.

Get into the mood for summer with the sultry sunshine sounds of Brazil!
