Grammy-nominated Banda Mantiqueira, a 13-piece instrumental ensemble based in Sao Paulo, puts a unique spin on the big band tradition with a program of straight-ahead fare and wholly Brazilian performances.

The group presents seven extended compositions that range from a joyful, energetic cover of Joã Bosco's samba hit "Linha de Passe" to an orchestral interpretation of "Carinhoso," a venerable standard by the late composer Pixinguinha, regarded as Brazil's Duke Ellington, and a sonorous interpretation of Jobim's "Insensatez."

Banda Mantiqueira will be a revelation for many jazz fans, demonstrating that sophisticated big band arranging, unique soloing and tight ensemble work fits perfectly with a strong Brazilian rhythmic groove.
