Chico Pinheiro Quartet on May 12th, 2018

Guitarist Chico Pinheiro is on the cutting edge of a new Brazilian sound that merges the heart of bossa nova with the heightened rhythmical drive of the younger generation. He has been recognized as guitar virtuoso as well as a singer of graceful beauty. Downbeat magazine claims him to be a "prodigy" and Latina Magazine calls him "the heart of the current Brazilian music scene." Pinheiro will be playing at the VJC with a Brazilian quartet featuring Helio Alves on piano and Eduardo Belo on bass. The quartet's drummer will be announced shortly.

Recognized as a rising star in Downbeat Magazine's 2011 Critic's poll, Pinheiro has released four albums as a leader; each one has received glowing reviews. His 2010 release, "There's a Storm Inside" was granted several awards by Jazz Latin Corner including Best Brazilian Jazz Álbum of the year, Best Latin Jazz Composition, and Best Latin Jazz Guitarist. Pinheiro has performed and recorded with Brazilian luminaries such as Ivan Lins, Rosa Passos, Dori Caymmi, Danilo Caymmi, João Donato, Johnny Alf, César Camargo Mariano, Luciana Souza, Chico César as well as northern stars including Brad Mehldau, Placido Domingo, Esperanza Spalding, Dianne Reeves, Nnenna Freelon, Bob Mintzer, Roberto Fonseca, Bob Mintzer Big Band, The Danish Radio Big Band, Mark Turner, Chris Potter, Eddie Gomez, Claudio Roditi, Duduka da Fonseca and Giovani Hidalgo.

May 12th will be an evening of Brazilian jazz, samba and bossa nova. When coming through Pinheriro, the resonates deeply with its rich history and is emboldened by fearlessly taking on the future. The concert has been generously sponsored by an important member of the VJC community, guitarist, singer-songwriter Chris Welles.

Eugene Uman's Convergence Project , June 9th, 2018

Eugene Uman, piano; Michael Zsoldos, saxophone; Jeff Galindo, trombone; David Picchi, bass; Jon Fisher, drums + special guests

Eugene Uman's annual concert at the VJC has become an opportunity for him to assemble a dream band that manifests his vision and unites his musical influences. Uman's compositions draw from a vocabulary of modern jazz, hard bop, rock, soul, Latin American rhythms and gospel; listeners can expect a "convergence" of the music he loves, a mash-up of styles where groove is king. Uman's energetic playing and writing style is flavored with the Latin rhythms that he has absorbed from numerous excursions to South America. Several of his compositions employ forms and grooves adapted from Colombian music such as cumbia, pasillo, puya, bambuco, and currulao. In the last several years, with the addition of Jon Fisher's drumming and David Picchi's bass work, the Convergence Project's focus has evolved to highlight their profound strengths in funk and soul. Uman's most recent creative venture is to mesh wordless vocals, sung by Wanda Houston, with the harmonized melodies of the horn lines and to add lyrics, penned by Verandah Porch and Patty Carpenter, to his Gospel-tinged compositions.

"I always love listening to Eugene's compositions; they make so much musical sense and bring you on a journey with a very healing, uplifting feel." -- Jerry Bergonzi
