Luiz/Ana/Luciano

Luiz:Ana:Luciano.jpg

I’m honored to work with these two masters of Brazilian Jazz:

Luiz Ewerling has been behind a drum kit since his sixth birthday, and has been carrying his Brazilian mastery of rhythm everywhere. Luiz has recorded and performed with Som Brasil, Sugar Blue, Elza Soares, Howard Levy, and many others. His album "Our Earth", released in 2002, divines a unique blending of Brazilian and American musical styles, ranging from Brazilian Pop to Rock, from Samba to Swing, from the free flowing pulse of the Partido Alto to contemporary jazz.

Luciano Antonio is a force in the Brazilian Music Scene. He transcends all borders and time through his soulful renditions of some of Brazil's greatest compositions and his own original works and collaborations. Luciano released two albums of original music "Vida de Arista - An Artist's Life" in 2011, and "Sem Palavras - Without Words" in 2015. His most recent accomplishments include the release of his 3rd album - "Luciano Antonio Quintet - Live At Jazz Showcase w/ special guests Breno Sauer and Neusa Sauer.

There's something in this music for everyone, as it sounds beyond ages or genre categories, created with very few tools - a voice and a guitar, powerful in it's simplicity, and in the same time sophisticated.

Passages - An Eclectic Collection

53155162_2202467159813625_7173204689855447040_n.jpg

“What started as a small art collection a couple of decades ago soon outgrew my house and later my storage space. That prompted me to analyze my compulsion to collect art and the realization that if I want to be surrounded by art the natural progression would be to open an art gallery. So here are my first timid steps toward that goal.”

Adrian Angyalosy

Vol. 39

About the venue: When you set foot inside Vol. 39, you might feel as though you’re stepping into a decadent cocktail bar from a bygone era. Bound vintage law books and tufted leather couches are balanced by delicate details like intricate glassware and hanging lamps crafted from cut crystal decanters. It all makes for an intriguing atmosphere that feels grounded in history, but with a hint of something new to be discovered.
