13th Annual Brasil Jazz Festa
Sunday February 28, 2021 ~ YouTube Livestream
Our favorite jazz festival, the 13th Annual Brasil Jazz Festa, will take place on Sunday February 28, beginning at 3 pm.
My wife and I have a particular fondness for this event, having attended the first 4 of these festivals when they were held in Encinitas beginning in 2008, and a number of others since moving to Dizzy’s in San Diego.
We’ve come to know a number of the musicians personally, and have attended solo concerts they have brought to the San Diego community over the years. I think we’ve only missed a couple of the Brasil Jazz Festa concerts since they started!
2021 is a bit different because of the pandemic, with the concert being live streamed on YouTube:
3:00 pm San Diego
3:00 pm Los Angeles
1:00 pm Honolulu
6:00 pm New York
8:00 pm Sao Paulo, Brazil
Here’s the 2021 line-up, a bit smaller scale than in the past live concerts (in no particular order) and donations are welcome!:
Justin Grinnell – Bass
Jose Amato – Guitar
Julian Cantelm – drums
Allison Adams Tucker – voice
Stefanie Schmitz – percussion, clarinet, saxophone
It’s sure to be a wonderful celebration of Brazilian jazz from some very talented musicians and vocalists, as it has for the last 12 years!
There is also a live option in Del Mar in a private garden setting for 20 people (masks and social distancing required) at $30 each. There are still a few seats left from what I heard – inquire at AllegatoMusic AT gmail DOT com.
