Spring Jazz Series: Litchfield JazzFest presents Sam Martinelli

April 10 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Sam Martinelli is one of the most talented musicians to come out of Brazil in recent times. His taste playing the drums is impeccable, either playing Brazilian music or American Jazz.
Brazilian music and Jazz have a long history of music integration, especially after the Bossa Nova movement that took place in Rio in the late 50s and spread throughout the world after the Carnegie Hall concert in 1962, where Tom Jobim, Joao Gilberto, and many others were presented to the world.

Jazz and Brazilian musicians always had respect and appreciation for one another, and this performance is part of a series of interviews and concerts that Mr. Martinelli is developing with the goal of keeping this beautiful cultural exchange between these two music cultures — Jazz, a truly American art, and Samba, a truly Brazilian art.

Presented in collaboration with New England Arts & Entertainment.
