NILSON MATTA’S BRAZILIAN VOYAGE QUINTET – Bossa Nova and Beyond!
With Nilson Matta on bass, Helio Alves on piano, John Snauwaert on sax, Marcello Pelliteri on drums, and vocalist Debora Watts.
Nilson Matta returns to SAC with his quintet and a very special vocalist for a night of Bossa Nova.
Matta is a pioneer in the art of playing Brazilian Jazz on acoustic bass. Nilson studied at Federal University of Rio de Janeiro UFRJ, and is considered one of the greatest bassist in the world. Since moving to New York City he has performed and recorded with renowned musicians such as Yo Yo Ma, Joe Henderson, Paul Winter, Nancy Wilson, Herbie Mann, Don Pullen, Trio da Paz, Gato Barbieri, and many others. Nilson is also a 2017 Grammy nominee.
Nilson Matta’s Brazilian Voyage has been touring all over the world. Matta will be accompanied by Helio Alves on piano, John Snauwaert on sax, Marcello Pelliteri on drums, and special guest vocalist Debora Watts. The quintet will perform Nilson’s originals mixed with Brazilian song book standards. It will literally take the audience on an exciting Brazilian Voyage!
It’s friends like you that have made the first five years of SAC so successful. Now, we are taking the opportunity to invite you to become our Friend – formally – as we launch Southampton Arts Center Friends Circle.
TAKEOVER 2020! artists include Jodi Bentivegna, Michael Butler, Isadora Capraro, Franco Cuttica, Esly Escobar, Melinda Hackett, Erica-Lynn Huberty, Dinah Maxwell Smith, Miles Partington, and Kerry Sharkey-Miller Back by popular demand with 10 new artists-in-residence! For ten weeks in the winter of 2020 Southampton Arts Center will once again hand over its galleries to ten East End artists, each with an assigned space to set up a “pop-up” studio. Completed works will be installed and the artists will have scheduled weekly studio time in the galleries from Thursday to Sunday, 12-6 PM to create new works in a wide variety of mediums. A schedule will be posted online each week so the public can plan visits accordingly. This gives guests the opportunity to visit repeatedly to view the progress of new works. It is both encouraged and anticipated that the TAKEOVER! artists will also collaborate organically during the course of their residencies. TAKEOVER 2020! is sponsored by Ingrid Arneberg with additional support from the Long Island Community Foundation.
