Jovino Santos Neto
The Golden Ear Awards for 2006 were given out on Monday Jan 29th 2007 and were held at EMP. The weekend was full of music there and this shot of and Jovino playing was made on Saturday the 27th. It was an evening of Brazilian Jazz with Jovino Santos Neto – piano, flute and melodica and his Quarteto opening up for Anne Drummond with Som de Brazil. One of Seattle’s brightest jazz exports, now working in New York and touring internationally, Anne presented her new group, (below) featuring top Brazilian musicians Nilson Matta, bass; Klaus Mueller, piano; and brilliant drummer Duduka da Fonseca. Looking back on a great weekend of jazz.
