Native Brazilian vocalist Kenia will join Mozik for a night of Brazilian jazz at one of the best clubs for live jazz, Nighttown.
Co-led by Berklee graduates keyboardist Gilson Schachnik and drummer Mauricio Zottarelli (best-known for his work with pianist Hiromi Uehara), Mozik's modus operandi combines intense focus with a characteristically Brazilian sort of hip, breezy nonchalance. Never veering off into smooth jazz irrelevance, or overly-abstruse experimentation, Mozik's music effectively, sweetly pays tribute to the salad days of Brazilian jazz without going completely retro. The quintet's music is both warm and intelligent, while retaining the sort of funky playfulness that some may interpret as an invitation to dance.
For the ninth year in a row, Nighttown has been named one of the top jazz clubs in the world by Downbeat Magazine.
