An Evening with André Mehmari, Brazilian Pianist and Composer
(Special guest appearance by Kenia)
Hear André's newest solo recordings:
Where Keith Jarrett melded the realms of jazz and classical music into one, André Mehmari has gone a step further. By adding the rhythms of his native Brazil, he has created a language of tremendous expressive power. Both a keyboard virtuoso and a skilled composer, Mehmari roams from the tender and romantic to the hard-driving and dramatic, speaking clearly and profoundly in a luminous instrumental voice.
In short, he is a fluent jazz improvisor, an imaginative composer, a virtuoso pianist, a dynamic Brazilian, and someone who loves to make his piano sing, all wrapped into one.
In collaboration with MCG Jazz, Chatham University & the Pittsburgh Chamber Music Society
