KERRY POLITZER’S BOSSA PDX
VALENTINE’S SATURDAY NIGHT
Led by pianist and vocalist Kerry Politzer, Bossa PDX pays homage to the masters of the bossa nova era with lovingly transcribed arrangements from Antônio Carlos Jobim, João Donato, Chico Buarque, Gilberto Gil, Caetano Veloso and many others.
Politzer has released six albums as a leader, including “Blue in Blue,” which featured saxophonist Donny McCaslin. Her 2005 album “Labyrinth” was a finalist for Best Jazz Album in the 2007 Independent Music Awards.
Kerry received a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Piano from the New England Conservatory of Music, has played the legendary Blue Note in NYC and on the QE2.
Playing with Kerry are George Colligan on drums, Ben Graves on guitar and Kevin Deitz on Bass
Want Saturday to top Friday on the “Romance Meter?”
Just make a reservation for our new five-course 6-8pm before the bossa starts and we take care of sound, taste, smell and appearance… we’ll leave only “touch” up to you.
