PLU’s Jazz Under the Stars: Jovino Santos Neto Quarteto

On Thursday, July 19, 7 p.m., Pacific Lutheran University’s Music Center Amphitheater will continue its summer Jazz Under the Stars concert series with a performance by the Jovino Santos Neto Quarteto with Mark Ivester on drums, Ben Thomas on vibraphone, Tim Carey on bass and Jovino Santos Neto on piano, flute and melodica. Three-time Latin Grammy nominee Jovino Santos Neto, a master pianist, composer and arranger, is among the top Brazilian musicians working today. Currently based in Seattle, he has throughout his career been closely affiliated with the Brazilian master Hermeto Pascoal. He was an integral part of Pascoal’s group from 1977 to 1992, where he fine-tuned his artistry, performing around the world and co-producing several legendary records. His personal style is a creative blend of energetic grooves, deep harmonies, telepathic improvisation, lyrical melodies and great ensemble playing, always inspired and informed by the colorful richness of Brazilian music.
