Diego Figueiredo featuring John Clayton and
Jeff Hamilton/Anat Cohen Choro Aventuroso
Saturday, June 24 at 3:30pm
Ohio Theatre, Playhouse Square 1511 Euclid Ave., Cleveland, OH 44115
DIEGO FIGUEIREDO is considered one of the most talented guitar players in the world today. He is the winner of several important competitions including the Montreux Jazz Competition and the VISA Prize.
Figueiredo has released more than 19 albums. His music fuses jazz, bossa nova and classical. In addition to playing guitar, he is a producer, arranger, orchestrator and multi-instrumentalist who has performed in more than 40 countries. Joining Diego onstage will be famed jazz musicians John Clayton and Jeff Hamilton.
Both onstage and on recordings, the music of clarinetist and saxophonist ANAT COHEN positively glows – with virtuosity, with charisma, with the sheer joy of creation. A true citizen of the world, Cohen speaks a universal language through her horn. Her fluency in the jazz tradition is utterly at one with her flair for Brazilian music in her Choro Aventuroso program, which features Latin-infused original jazz compositions along with inspired interpretations of tunes from the rich musical traditions of Brazil
