Percussion Masters Series: Tommy Campbell Trio

Saturday, September 15
8PM Cover $30

Acclaimed master drummer Tommy Campbell brings his formidable trio to the Zinc jazz club on Saturday, September 15. He’s supported by pianist Alain Mallet and bassist Richie Goods.

As the nephew of Hammond B3 Legend Jimmy Smith, Tommy Campbell was born into a musical family and was “surrounded by music and drummers since (he) was two years old.” He worked with Dizzy Gillespie over a span of almost two decades, and also the same with Sonny Rollins. Tommy recorded and toured extensively with John McLaughlin and came up though the musicianship ranks with lifelong friend and mentor Kevin Eubanks. Campbells “Vocal~Eyes” is a concept he developed while playing with the Manhattan Transfer and living in New York City. Tommy concentrated on blending the straight up groove of Jazz with vocal melodies and syncopated lyrics and arrangements that pull from BeBop through Ethnic Music, Hip-Hop, and other wide varieties of music.

The “Vocal~Eyes” band is pushing new boundaries in vocal/instrumental blending that satisfies the hunger of traditional jazz aficionados, while paving the way for a new, young generation of jazz heads. My goal with this project is to reacquaint all vocalists with the reasons why they became vocalists. After all, the voice and the drum are the first instruments!”

Monika Oliveira & The Brazilians

Saturday, September 15
Sets at 10PM 11:30PM & 1AM

Monika Oliveira is a singer/songwriter, a native of Rio de Janeiro, living and performing in the United States. She is a fresh and exciting vocal presence on the Brazilian music scene today in New York. Monika's voice enchants and entrances through her innate rhythmic feel and phrasing. She has performed in many venues throughout the city including the famous Madison Square Garden. She combines her love of Brazil's musical heritage and her love of Jazz into a sultry variation on both - Brazilian Jazz that is at once moving and rhythmic, pure and passionate.

Monika Oliveira, and her band, The Brazilians, will transport you to Brazil. She is currently performing “The MPB (Popular Brazilian Music) Show”, a musical experience that incorporates popular regional styles of Brazilian music like Baião, Bossa, Maracatu and Samba with the sophistication of Jazz and the attitude of Rock and Roll.

Her positive high-energy stage presence, along with her talented band, are infectious and she engages her audience to join her on the dance floor for some Bossa Nova to hip shaking Samba. It’s obvious that Monika Oliveira loves her music and once you meet her you will love her too.
