Also this Wednesday, Yuko Ito @ Kitano!

NY-based Japanese vocalist Yuko Ito will be appearing @ NY's Kitano this Wenesday, Feb 25, backed by a stellar trio of Brazilian musicians: Cidinho Teixeira (aka Cidinho "Chiko's Bar") on piano, Gustavo Amarante on bass, and Mauricio Zottarelli on drums.

She celebrates her new CD release, "O Cantador," titled after the famous Dori Caymmi-Nelson Motta introduced by Nana Caymmi (with a great arrangement by Lindolfo Gaya) fifty years ago, in 1966. The album, already available at cdbaby, also includes tunes by Djavan, Marcos Valle, and Milton Nascimento.
