Guitarist Joe Carter's current specialty is Brazilian jazz, combining jazz styles with samba, bossa nova and Northeastern Brazilian music. He'll be performing solo as well as duets with vocalist/lyricist Peter Cherches, who has written new lyrics and vocalese for bossa nova and jazz classics.

Having performed in such diverse places as Rio de Janeiro, Curitiba and Recife in Brazil, as well as India, Germany and France, Joe Carter has used these experiences to form a sound and style based in “Samba Jazz,” a style that combines the improvisational nature of North American jazz with the lyrical and rhythmical aspects of Brazilian bossa nova, samba, choro and MPB. Carter has recorded and performed with jazz artists such as Art Farmer and Lee Konitz and with numerous Brazilian artists, including Luiz Eca and Mauricio Einhorn. His most recent CD is Both Sides of the Equator, with bassist David Finck and percussionist Ze Mauricio.

Peter Cherches has been singing and writing original lyrics for jazz classics for three decades. His new album, Mercerized! Songs of Johnny Mercer, features his original vocalese to complement Mercer's lyrics. Cherches is also a widely published fiction writer, and Publishers Weekly has called him "one of the innovators of the short short story."

$20 includes a drink.
