Rebecca Martin & Orquestra Jazz de MatosinhosMusic pop, jazz, folk ..., Festivals

Rebecca Martin is one of the most accomplished singers of contemporary jazz and has been right from her origins with the influential duo Once Blue. She was the first female vocalist to appear on one of Paul Motian's records and the first singer-songwriter in 30 years to headline at the Village Vanguard in New York. Martin alternates spellbinding versions of standards (Middlehope was hailed as one of the best albums of 2002) with brilliant compositions of her own.

For its part, the Orquestra Jazz Matosinhos (OJM), after previously providing their services to virtuosos of the stature of Kurt Rosenwinkel, Mark Turner and Fred Hersch, are this year planning another ambitious premiere at the now traditional yearly autumn concert at our festival. Rebecca Martin in a big band format, as you will never have heard her before.
