What to Expect
Audiences should expect beautiful bossa nova and Brazilian jazz. This can be presented both concert style and as background music. The bossa beat is so sensuous that some audience members may feel moved to dance.
Jazz Brasileiro is a duo featuring guitarist Tony Cesarano and singer Debo Orlofsky. Tony was the resident guitarist at Radio City Music Hall for 30 years and has played in jazz groups in Albuquerque for 20 years traveling back and forth between NYC and ABQ for some of those years before settling down in ABQ. Debo has been performing in bands in and around ABQ for 27 years - singing and playing accordion/piano in a wide range of musical groups including the alternative bands Splinter Fish and Manna from Nowhere, the African dance music group, Animal Opera, country blues band, Alpha Blue, and the Brazilian group, Saudade, among others. Together, the duo perform a range of Brazilian music that is sophisticated, sublime, sumptuous, and sweet. The group expands at times to include a rhythm section such as drums/percussion and bass.
Additional Booking Notes
Staging is simple for the duo. We have some light duty sound reinforcement equipment that we bring in. If anything bigger is required, this would be a separate expense above and beyond the performance fee. Lighting would have to be provided by the venue or client. For the 4-piece, some light drum mic-ing might be required
Important rider info - that the equipment and performers be protected from the elements; some sort of sunshade or rain cover as weather dictates
