Fest fest: the Brazil Project

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

Jazz flutist Ali Ry­er­son and guitarist Phill Fest join the Brazil Project for “Dig This Samba!” at the Scot­tish Rite Cen­ter (463 Paseo de Per­alta) at 7:30 p.m. on Satur­day, Dec. 5. The con­cert is a trib­ute to the mu­sic of the late Brazil­ian pi­anist Man­fredo Fest, fa­ther of the guitarist. “I have been in­spired by Man­fredo’s mu­sic since I first heard him in the late 1970s,” said Brazil Project pi­anist Bert Dal­ton. “His won­der­ful melodies, his nat­u­ral use of Brazil­ian rhythms and har­monies, and flaw­less pi­ano tech­nique set him apart as one of the most im­por­tant Brazil­ian jazz pi­anists.” The other mem­bers of Brazil Project are bassist Rob “Milo” Jaramillo, vo­cal­ist Patty Stephens, drum­mer John Bartlit, and per­cus­sion­ist Frank Leto. Ad­vance tick­ets for the Santa Fe con­cert are $20 through Tick­ets Santa Fe at the Len­sic (505-988-1234, www.tick­etssantafe.org); or $25 at the door. The band also presents “Dig This Samba” on Fri­day, Dec. 4, in Al­bu­querque and on Sun­day, Dec. 6, in El Paso; see www.bert­dal­ton.com for de­tails. — Paul Wei­de­man
