[THIS SHOW HAS BEEN CANCELED DUE TO ROCHESTER BEING A REALLY SNOWY PLACE ON FRIDAY]Exodus to Jazz brings some more heat in the second installment of its "Latin Heat" series, with Susan Pereira & Sabor Brasil laying down the samba and bossa nova sounds of Rio and Brazil to the Clarion Riverside Hotel (oops) Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Rochester on Friday, December 19th, with sets at 8:00 & 10:00.
Formed in 1991 by Susan and Brazilian drummer Vanderlei Pereira, Sabor Brasil is one of the most popular Brazilian ensembles in the NYC area. Featuring their debut album, Tudo Azul, Susan Pereira and Sabor Brasil bring their fusion of traditional Brazilian styles with contemporary jazz. Vocalist, pianist and percussionist, Susan Pereira draws on many influences in her compositions and arrangements, including samba, bossa nova, choro and Bahian rhythms and styles.
The "Latin Heat" series concludes (as does the Fall/Winter series) on January 30th with the Gabriel Alegria Afro-Peruvian Sextet at the Clarion on January 30th. More later on that.
All shows are at 8:00 and 10:00 pm. Doors open at 6:30 pm. Tickets can be purchased for individual shows or for packages. One date is $25 reserved seating, $20 general admission and the last two dates is $42/$34. Students get a 50% discount.
