“This is some brilliant Brazilian jazz.” All About Jazz

Michel Nirenberg is an award-winning jazz and classical saxophonist and composer from Rio de Janeiro. Now on his third U.S. tour, he has already won the hearts and minds of many jazz fans and high praise from critics. After earning a master's degree from James Madison University in classical performance, saxophone, he recorded his first album Retrato/Portrait, accompanied by a roster of international players. The recording quickly rose to No. 6 on the CMJ jazz radio charts in the U.S., leading to a string of concerts and many standing ovations. 

His Brazilian Jazz Quartet showcases a range of styles in contemporary and historically popular Brazilian instrumental music. Along with the familiar sounds of samba, listeners will hear the urban-born choro, forrò, baião, maracatu, and Ijexa. Being a history buff, the young artist shares fascinating facts about this rich and inviting music. Tour performances include tunes from his first CD and new pieces meant for his upcoming release. "Faith” mixes baião, partido alto and maracatu rhythms. An Ijexá rhythm from the state of Bahia, “Bahia De Todos Os Santos” is based on a traditional Capoeira chant.  The music is uplifting and energizing. 

Nirenberg returns one year after a wonderful debut performance in the Stotlz Listening Room last year. He showed himself to be a virtuoso performer and an able ambassador of Brazilian music. Enjoy a top flight band and get ready to hear some amazing tunes – melodic and memorable!
