Gnu Vox: Patrick de Santos and Jean Rohe image
A native of the Cape Verde Islands, West Africa, Patrick De Santos moved to and was raised in France from the age of 6. He started playing the guitar as a teenager but later chose to dedicate himself to his real love: singing. Mostly a self-taught vocalist, De Santos nevertheless attended a classical conservatory for two years. However, his desire to improvise and use the full range of his voice led him to a more personal and eclectic development and approach to singing. He has traveled extensively and has lived in France, Cuba, Senegal and the United States, gradually perfecting his craft from the sources of Jazz, Samba, Salsa, R&B and Bossa Nova, developing a very distinctive style, great stage presence and the ability to make a strong emotional impact. With a clear, resilient, 3 and½ octave range and fluency in 4 languages (French, Spanish, English and Portuguese) he has turned into something of a cultural cross roads. In the year 2000 and 2001 and 2005 Patrick De Santos won the Washington Area Music Award ( Wammies ) for best vocalist. De Santos weaves his many influences and styles creating a unique sound. His success has led to packed nightclubs and numerous requests for private performances and concerts to benefit causes to which he is committed such as the National Geographic's concert to aid the victims of Hurricane Mitch and the One Song-One Cause concert in support of world hunger and foodfirst.org. His musical expression exploits the endless variety of timbre and nuance and transcends the limitations of any particular style.

Ever since she was a youngster, Jean Rohe has been singing. Now, fresh home after a summer spent in Europe where she won second place and the audience choice award at the international Shure Vocal Competition at Switzerland’s Montreux Jazz Festival, she’s bringing thought-provoking music to the New York scene that makes you want to dance and sing, too. Her multi-lingual musical blend often speaks to the human condition and our responsibility to engage it. “I want my music to be participatory, community-building,” she says. “If people leave feeling better than they did when they came in, I’ve done my job.”

6:00PM  JANET HAMILL
Janet Hamill, poet
Spoken word unplugged with Jay LoRubbio on acoustic guitar and Greg Feller on percussion.

Poet, painter, and performer JANET HAMILL is the author of four books: Lost Ceilings (Telephone Books), Nostalgia of the Infinite (Ocean View Books), The Temple (Telephone Books), and Troublante (Oliphant.).

Janet has been called “our Baudelaire” by no less a poetry presence than Bob Holman. Her poetry travels the road to the marvelous, following the lead of the Surrealists, with their startling juxtapositions and reliance on dream imagery. Likewise, her fiction is concerned with the fantastic - other worlds and unnatural beings - and is inspired by the Magic Realism of South American authors.

This outstanding argentinian pianist and composer, considered one of the most creative musicians of the post-Piazzolla generation, blends modern tango and folk music from Argentina with jazz in a completely new and creative way. With four CDs as band leader for the prestigious Fresh Sound Records label, he has recorded with Jorge Rossy (Brad Meldhau trio), Chris Cheek and Omer Avital. Touring in clubs and festivals all around Europe and Japan, he now presnts his music in NYC for the first time, with a stunning quintet featuring musicians as bassist Pablo Aslan (Paquito D`Rivera, Lalo Schiffrin, Joe Lovano).

“Every once in a while appears music of such accomplishment and beauty that it completely transcends boundaries of style or culture to become an instant classic. Sentido, the gorgeous new record by Argentinean pianist Emilio Solla and his group Afines, contains such music. Simply one of the best jazz albums of the year”
