If you are one of these people who gets goose bumps when only hearing the word JAZZ, no matter if you love or hate the genre, don’t miss the Marta Karassawa Quintet.
 
For Jazz lovers, the pianist Marta Karassawa and sideman Frank Herzberg (bass), Zé Eduardo Nazário (drums), Mário Checchetto (saxophone) and Jean Pierre Ryckebusch (trumpet, flugelhorn) consistently provide pleasant surprises.
 
For people who don't ordinarily enjoy Jazz - the pianist has sought out an outstanding repertoire of great melodies that drag you along with a swing worthy of the best American jazz bands from the forties and fifties, with the goal to satisfy the even most prejudiced listener.

"...considered one of the best Brazilian Jazz bands of 2006." (Project "Prata da Casa" SESC Pompéia)
