Every December at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, Ilene Glick Barkan, wife of Programming Director and renowned record producer, Todd Barkan, celebrates her birthday with friends, relatives, and the Club’s jazz fans. This year, Ilene and friends were serenaded by sumptuous Brazilian ballads and rousing Sambas, led by the renowned duo, Duduka Da Fonseca, on drums, and Helio Alves, on piano, with both artists greeting the packed crowd. I was able to catch the 2nd and 3rd sets of this busy 4-set night (includes After-Hours), and the program above shows just how prolific these musicians are. Duduka and Helio’s Quintet also included Romero Lubambo on guitar, Claudio Roditi on trumpet and flugelhorn, and George Mraz on bass. From time to time, Maucha Adnet joined the band on vocals, Anat Cohen joined the band on clarinet, and Mauro Senise joined the band on flute. Needless to say, this was an amazing lineup of talent this Friday night in December.

Maucha Adnet has a voice akin to warm cognac, and she blended with the musicians in sometimes delicate, sometimes witty refrains. These are artists who work together frequently, in various band arrangements, and they anticipate each other’s solos and ornamentations. Anat Cohen, another Special Guest, played her clarinet with joyful abandon, garnering adoration from this energized crowd. The Brazilian songs, played in Samba, Bossa Nova, and Ballad rhythms, were all the more sizzling with the wide range of brass, strings, vocals, keyboard, percussion, and reeds. Mauro Senise, a flute aficionado from Brazil, added lilting, luscious solos to the exotic tones and motifs.

Among the Quintet, Romero Lubambo is a charismatic, charming, class act. His seasoned guitar solos were rambunctious and rich, and he kept a watchful eye as various artists passed the lead in several pieces. In the 3rd set, Maucha and Romero performed a duo, and one could have heard a pin drop, as they seized the moment with mesmerizing, magnetic flair. Claudio Roditi, on trumpet and flugelhorn, spiced up the arrangements with bravura brass. George Mraz, on bass, played some serendipitous string solos, with earthy, deep intonations. But, the brightest Brazilian stars were the two leads, Duduka Da Fonseca and Helio Alves, on drums and piano, who created magic with their powerful percussive flourishes. Duduka’s cymbals and drums went occasionally wild, while Helio added waterfalls of bubbling notes, jumping from the keyboard. For one evening, Dizzy’s went to Rio, and we had a grand party to remember. Birthday cake was served all around. Check the Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola Website for future dates and artists.
