Mafalda Minnozzi has arrived in NY on the jazz scene by way of a long journey across three continents. Originating in Italy and evolving in Brazil to the USA with so many stops in between, the resulting language all comes together on her new release “NATURAL IMPRESSION”. After recording some 20+ albums in Brazil, the new album is her third in a series for the American jazz market in collaboration with producer, guitarist and arranger Paul Ricci. Her first, the critically acclaimed Brazilian based “Sensorial – Portraits in Bossa & Jazz” (2020) featured Art Hirahara, Rogerio Boccato, Essiet Okon Essiet, Will Calhoun, Victor Jones and Harvie S. and earned her Latin Jazz Artist of the Month on WUCF radio. Her second album, “Cinema City – Jazz Scenes From italian Film”(2021), featuring Dave Liebman and Graham Haynes, was a very personal work released during the pandemic dedicated to jazz readings of the great Italian film composers.
SYNOPSIS OF THE SHOW “TROPICAL PHOTOGRAMS”
In “TROPICAL PHOTOGRAMS – Scenes of life and music in bossa & jazz”, Mafalda Minnozzi sings about her life through the songs and composers who have accompanied and inspired her during her 35-year career. In the new “tropical” version of the show, the repertoire draws from her latest release “Natural Impression” and is centered above all on Jobim, Baden Powell, Marcos Valle and Caetano Veloso, who marked the first years of experiences and collaborations of the singer in Brazil starting from her debut at the “Paradiso”, historic music club in Rio de Janeiro in 1996.
Like in a film, frame by frame, the artist builds her own soundtrack on stage, enriched by other “frames” dedicated to Cole Porter, Ennio Morricone and Bruno Martino that fit perfectly into the musical mosaic of the show thanks to the refined original arrangements.
In this journey that takes the audience from “Águas de Março” to “Coração Vagabundo”, from “My Shining Hour” to “Tu Si ‘Na Cosa Grande”, and from “Samba da Bênção” to “Estate”, Mafalda once again reveals her story that exudes passion and love for the art.
