ELIS & TOM

SARAH MARIE YOUNG & GUY KING
MILLION BRAZILIAN PROJECT
 
 

PROJECT STATEMENT

This project was formed to present excellent Brazilian music performed as true to the original intent as possible with our own twists and turns thrown in. Our first project was the realization of Elis & Tom - the great Brazilian recording from the mid 70's featuring the compositions of Antonio Carlos Jobim, the vocals of Elis Regina, and string and arrangements by the great Cesar Camargo Mariano. The presentation of this music was truly a labor of love involving 14 incredible musicians and transcriptions and arrangements by myself. Our first show was at the Fulton Street Collective and soon we will play at another venue - The Jazz Showcase. Also, stay tuned as we have secured a spot as the headliner on the Jazz and Heritage stage of the Chicago Jazz Festival.
