Paula Oliveira, unavoidable jazz singer of the national jazz scene, with an enviable career in Portuguese lands and beyond! She studied at Hot Club de Portugal, Taller de Musics de Barcelona or Manhattan School Of Music (NY) where she resided. The list of mentors is huge, including names like Phil Woods, Norma Winston, Reggie Workman, to name a few. From Jazz to Portuguese Music, there are several edited works. She thus joins the Orquestra de Jazz do Algarve, to celebrate the International Jazz Day, on two different dates. After You’ve Gone, is the theme that provides the guiding line of this energetic Concert of contrasts: if it weren’t for the orchestration “Up Swing” by Sarah Vaughan. Other great standards join him Come Rain Or Come Shine, Fly Me To The Moon, Let The Good times Roll, or, in more 80’s sounds This Masquerade. Highlight for some orchestrations by Claus Nymark, a Danish musician residing in Portugal for decades, who has contributed a lot to Portuguese Jazz, whether in teaching, as a musician or directing the Angrajazz Orchestra, in the Azores. It is a pleasure for us to join his Music, the Sound of Claus, Paula Oliveira, and our Orchestra, in such a varied repertoire!
