Iconic Brazilian vocalist Rosa Passos makes a long-awaited return to the United States, offering a spellbinding evening of bossa nova in The Appel Room. Passos has been anointed the "female João Gilberto" but she is a prolific and distinct artist in her own right and a true leader of the craft. Passos will be joined by NEA Jazz Master Kenny Barron, a nine-time Grammy Award® nominee and one of the most important jazz pianists alive. In their first ever performance together, Rosa Passos and Kenny Barron will impress not only Brazilian jazz fans and lovers of the Jobim songbook, but also classic jazz fans who appreciate a swinging rhythm section, masterful solos, and effortlessly captivating vocals.
