7pm & 8:30pm

The name Cidinho Teixeira is synonymous with Brazilian Groove. Born in August 14th 1942 in Rio Grande – R.G do Sul, his lifelong immersion and proficiency in many of the styles of Brazilian music have given him great insight into the elements needed to make the music “feel its roots” and “move the people”.  He was one of the pianist at Chico’s Bar in Rio de Janeiro during to 70’s when bossa nova hit the scene for the second time. He was even playing a set when Bill Evans arrived to check out the music. Cidinho has performed with some of the top Brazilian personalities including Gilberto Gil,Djavan,Leny Andrade,Gal Costa, and Simone to name a few. Most recently he played a European tour with the legendary Johnny Alf and Alaide Costa. Witness Cidinho’s groove mastery at the Zinc Bar, the treasure of Brazilian music gigs in Manhattan. You might find yourself sitting next to Airto, Flora, Tania Maria, or whoever’s headlining at the Blue Note!

Steve Carrington Quartet

Monday, August 14
10pm & midnight

The vibrant, full-bodied sound that emerges from Steve Carrington’s saxophone is at once old-school and avant-garde. From his childhood in East Baltimore to his tour of duty in the United States Army… from his dedicated musicianship to his medical scholarship… Steve’s lifetime of varied experiences yield a signature musical style that is dynamic, powerful, and deeply spiritual. The depth of his interpretation… the confidence in his approach… his rich, expressive tone… all conspire to stir the soul.

Here’s how Chick Corea described the experience of hearing the Jazz Healer play. After inviting Steve to sit in on a recent performance at New York’s legendary Blue Note, he said: “Keep that big, beautiful smile and that big, beautiful sound.”

Steve’s big sound and even bigger smile change the energy in any venue, from a low-key, late-night gig at The Fat Cat, to an elegant, early-evening concert at the Atrium in Jazz at Lincoln Center. While playing, Steve causes his tenor sax to chuckle. While pausing to listen to his bandmates, he can’t help but accompany them with his unmistakable, infectious laughter — it’s a musical instrument all by itself!
