André Mehmari at Classic Pianos
3003 SE Milwaukie Ave Portland, OR 97202
Jan. 25, 2019, 7:30 p.m.
Classic Pianos and Giordano Productions present a live performance of the André Mehmari Trio. There is something special about the sound of the piano trio that propels master pianists to another level. The trios of Keith Jarrett and Brad Mehldau – to whom Brazilian pianist André Mehmari is often likened – provide evidence of the power of piano trio alchemy. Mehmari now brings forth his trio – bassist Neymar Dias and drummer Sérgio Reze – to explore the work of Clube de Esquina, a group of Brazilian artists who blend ideas and sounds from pop, folk music, bossa nova, jazz, and classical avant-garde to create hymns honoring friendship and dialogue that are among the greatest treasures of Brazilian music.
