Bosa Nova Night featuring
Sounds of Spring with the Music of Antonio Jobim & Sergio Mendes
Acclaimed singer, Jonathan Karrant is coming to The Fairmont Grand Lobby to celebrate music Legends, Antonio Carlos Jobim and Sergio Mendes. Two of the greatest Brazilian composers, pianists, guitarists, songwriters, arrangers, and singers. Considered one of the great exponents of Brazilian music, Jobim internationalized bossa nova and, with the help of important American artists, merged it with jazz in the 1960’s to create a new sound. Sergio Mendes’ career took off with worldwide hits by his group Brasil ’66. He has over 55 releases and plays bossa nova heavily crossed with jazz and funk.
Jonathan and his all-star band, The Danny Green Trio, will pay tribute to Jobim with exciting musical arrangements that highlight such songs as; Girl from Ipanema, Wave, One Note Samba, Fool on the Hill, The Look of Love and more. This will be a smooth and tropical musical experience, washing over you like the warm waters of Rio de Janeiro.

Jonathan Karrant’s album, “On and On” hit #4 on the Billboard Jazz charts and his album Live hit #2 on the iTunes Jazz Charts. He has received honors throughout the states including the New York City Cabaret Jazz Honors, “Best Singer” for the Bravo California Awards and was named one of the top 10 rising vocalists by Downbeat. “A voice, romantic without being cloying, warm but not forced, Jonathan carries songs with an emotional weight that reaches your soul. At the same time, he can swing with the kind of jazz suave that was patented by Mel Torme.” – Jazz Corner
