Michel Nirenberg Brazilian Jazz Quartet

  • Stoltz Listening Room 40 East Dover Street Easton, MD, 21601 United States (map)

Brazilian saxophonist and composer Michel Nirenberg will tour Mid-Atlantic cities and towns, sharing the vibrant melodies and captivating rhythms of his homeland with fans of world music and jazz. The tour takes his quartet from the nation’s capital to Baltimore and Annapolis, to Easton on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, and concludes with an appearance in Fairfax, Virginia on November 12. The rising young star will revisit major jazz venues in Washington, D.C. and Baltimore, where on past tours, he has played to sell-out crowds, earning standing ovations for his original tunes and masterful delivery. 

Nirenberg’s 2015 album Retrato/Portrait was recorded on the Indy label, Carioca Music, and released in the U.S. where it soared on the CMJ radio charts, peaking at No. 6. Critics heaped praise on the recording. Dan Bilawsky of All About Jazz, writes, “In terms of style, substance, and execution, Nirenberg ranks high. This is some brilliant Brazilian jazz.” Raul da Gama of Latin Jazz Network says, "Here's a player who uses virtuosity not for self-aggrandizement but to glorify the music.”

Michel will be joined by virtuoso Brazilian bassist Leonardo Lucini, percussion Alejandro Lucini, and Baltimore pianist Todd Simon.
