The Requinte Trio
The Requinte Trio (which means “elegant” in Portuguese) is the latest venture for Manhattan Transfer’s nine-time GRAMMY winner, Janis Siegel. Together with pianist/arranger John di Martino and singer, percussionist, guitarist, and songwriter, Nanny Assis, they blend the musicality born of their varied cultures and musical experiences. Trio members share a “love of lyrical melodies and delicious grooves”, creating sensual music which fuses American and Brazilian styles. They are joined by bassist, Leo Traversa for a night of Brazilian jazz, soul, and original songs in Portuguese and English.
