These tunes will transport you to the contemporary bars and lounges of urban metropolis’ where Brazilian music has had its undeniable impact on today’s global music and art culture.

Focussing on compositions by the Brazilian composer Antônio Carlos Jobim, this musical ensemble succeeds in bringing out the colours of these meanwhile classical tunes of the 60’s by arranging them in a contemporary Nu-jazz style.

Backed by incredible rhythmic talent on bass and percussion, the ‘Ipanema Lounge Project’ features the sultry voice of the Nu-jazz singer and songwriter Frances Livings and the harmonious tones of the classical guitarist, arranger and composer Greg Porée. And although the constellation of the two main members seems to reflect Gilberto and Byrd, they are far away from being a cover band.

The ‘Ipanema Lounge Project’ never loses touch with the intentions of the original tune. Their sophisticated interpretation of these standards ‘Corcovado’, 'One Note Samba' and ‘Dindi’ perfectly capture the mood of the time, on the same note, infusing them with an easy-going, contemplative and seductive Lounge-jazz feeling.
