We are so thrilled to welcome back our dear friend from Rio de Janeiro, vocalist and guitarist Daniel Rolim. He was featured on our Jazz Masterworks Series project “Getz/Gilberto” a total of three times over the past three years. The same goes for the remarkable Hungarian saxophone virtuoso from Budapest, Gabor Bolla. Both of these incredible artists were instrumental in making the Getz/Gilberto project one of our club’s most memorable, popular and successful projects ever. Aside from his wonderful vocal and guitar skills, Daniel Rolim also has a strong reputation as a deeply devoted ambassador of Brazilian music. His native country of course has one of the richest music traditions in the world, and nothing fills us with more sparkling joy than to experience Daniel sharing his favorite songs with relentless passion with all his audiences. For this particular new project Daniel and Gabor have put together a selection of their top favorite Brazilian standard songs and arranged them for this exciting group which also comprises New York heavyweight Victor Jones, who is the former drummer of Mr. Bossa Nova himself – the one and only Stan Getz. To round of the group we are very happy to welcome back Brazilian bassist Romulo Duarte.
About the artists
Composer, interpreter, guitarist and singer Daniel Rolim works with many forms of Brazilian music. With its wide repertoire he interprets the greatest Brazilian composers and performs his own original music with passion and dedication. He is recognized not only in Brazil but throughout Europe, for his work, his talent, his capacity of engaging the listeners and his gentle and creamy voice touching the hearts of his audiences. Rolim’s sound is both striking and personal, intertwining the sounds of the great Brazilian Bossa Nova genre developed in the 1950s,1960 and 1970s by musicians and composers such as João Gilberto, Gilberto Gil, Antonio Carlos Jobim and Vinicius de Moraes. With shows and performances in the most of Brazil and many parts of Europe he has taken the best of Brazilian culture to numerous places over the world, always received with great success and enthusiasm.
One of the most impressive and talked about new tenor saxophonists on the international jazz scene today is undoubtedly the young Hungarian Gabor Bolla who has been taking audiences by storm at The Standard Jazz Club for the past three years, as a featured artist on several Jazz Masterworks Series projects, including Takin’ Off (Herbie Hancock), Speak No Evil (Wayne Shorter) and Round’ Midnight (Miles Davis) – in addition to participating in our UNESCO International Jazz Day events and appearing with Gary Peacock, Randy Brecker, Alvin Queen, Niels Lan Doky, Ira Coleman and Jeff “Tain” Watts during our yearly Copenhagen Jazz Festival programs and last but not least playing with the young piano prodigy Joey Alexander. We are very excited about his return engagement for this exciting and much loved Stan Getz tribute and Bossa Nova celebration.
Best known as the drummer of Stan Getz, Little Jimmy Scott, Chaka Khan and Michel Petrucciani – Victor Jones has also worked with Woody Shaw, James Moody, Wynton Marsalis, Nile Rogers and tons more. Recognized as one of the most prolific and eclectic drummers in jazz today, he appears on more than two hundred recordings and sound tracks. A two time Grammy nominee – one time winner, and a one time Oscar nominated artist . Victor began his musical journey back in the late 60s as a classical trumpet player in his home town of East Orange New Jersey. After 10 years of studying trumpet he became interested in the drums from listening to Ringo and the Beatles and then discovered the music of James Brown, Jimmy Hendrix, John Coltrane and Miles Davis.
Bassist Rômulo Duarte is from the city of Rio de Janeiro. He appeared on the 2010 album “Música em Pessoa” with some of the greatest Brazilian singers: Caetano Veloso, Ney Matogrosso, Gilberto Gil, Milton Nascimento and Maria Bethânia. He has also played in various clubs and music festivals throughout Europe, including the Montreux Jazz Festival, Veneto Jazz, Blue Note Milan and Umbria Jazz.
