Lori Mechem & Ritmos Picantes: Brazilian Christmas

A performance by Lori Mechem and Ritmos Picantes is always a special occasion. This group of master jazz musicians has been together for over 20 years, performing and recording Brazilian jazz standards and original compositions. Their deep understanding and love of Brazilian styles makes every performance a delight.

On Friday, December 1, the group will take the stage in the Jazz Cave for what has been a traditional pre-holiday appearance led by pianist and Nashville Jazz Workshop co-founder Lori Mechem. The theme for this appearance is, appropriately enough, "Brazilian Christmas," the title of the band's 2005 Green Hill Music recording. The program will include selections from this recording along with other Brazilian classics.

Joining Lori onstage will be Roger Spencer (bass), Chris Brown (drums), Denis Solee (sax), Dann Sherrill (percussion), and Mark Christian (guitar).
