Master bassist and arranger Nilson Matta assembles an all-star American and Brazilian band that includes top American and Brazilian musicians, including vocalists Leni Andrade and Gretchen Parlato, pianists Kenny Barron and Klaus Mueller, trumpeter Randy Brecker and clarinetist Anat Cohen, among others, for a jazz reimagining of the music from Black Orpheus — music from both the groundbreaking 1959 film that introduced much of the world to Brazilian music and from the beloved but much lesser-known 1956 stage play.
