Wave, the bossa trio with vocalist Jerry Sociedade, pianist Ginny Simonds, and bassist Chris Thompson and special guests and good friends David Glover on sax and Lu Frattaroli on drums.
The theme of this year’s GigSpace concert – ‘Brazil: Bossa and Beyond’ – was inspired by Ginny’s and Jerry’s recent ‘musical pilgrimage’ to Brazil. In addition to the more familiar bossas and sambas, they would like to share their recent exploration of a wider variety of Brazilian music styles and composers, primarily from the northeastern regions of Brazil. Jerry sings most of these in Portuguese, which is his mother tongue.
