Friday, April 29: Maria Rivas featuring Danny Burger – Drums, Brian Murphy – Piano/Keyboards, and Nicky Orta – Bass.
Known as one of the most versatile voices in Latin America and now North America, Rivas skillfully combines American and Latin Jazz rhythms with lively yet sentimental music from around the world. She interprets her music in English, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese, and performs her own blend of traditional standards as well as music and lyrics she has composed herself.
