Luciana Souza and Trio Corrente @ The Athenaeum

April 26 @ 7:30 pm


The series concludes on Friday, April 26, with the return of brilliant vocalist, Luciana Souza, with the São Paulo–based musicians of Trio Corrente: drummer Edu Ribeiro, pianist Fabio Torres, and bassist Paulo Paulelli. An Athenaeum favorite since her local debut at the library in 2004 in her long-standing duo with guitarist Romero Lubambo, Souza’s most recent appearances on the Athenaeum series in spring 2016 and fall 2018 were each chosen by the San Diego Union-Tribune’s George Varga as the number one jazz concert in both years. One of jazz’s leading singers and interpreters, Souza has been releasing acclaimed recordings since 2002, including her six Grammy-nominated records Brazilian Duos, North and South, Duos II, Tide, Duos III, and The Book of Chet. Billboard magazine has said of Souza, “She continues her captivating journey as a uniquely talented vocalist who organically crosses genre borders. Her music soulfully reflects, wistfully regrets, romantically woos, joyfully celebrates.”

The members of Trio Corrente have performed together over the last two decades with a who’s who of Brazilian artists and have attracted a loyal following in Brazil and Europe. Trio Corrente is the group of choice for musicians such as Paquito de Rivera, Rosa Passos, and Ron Carter. With de Rivera, Trio Corrente won two Grammy Awards and toured the world. Souza and Trio Corrente’s collaborative album, Cometa, recorded live in São Paulo at the beginning of 2023, has been nominated for a Grammy as best Latin Jazz recording of 2024.
