Dizzy's Club

Abelita Mateus and Friends

Mixed Feelings Album Release Concert

With pianist and vocalist Abelita Mateus, acoustic bassist Peter Slavov, trumpeter Diego Urcola, tenor saxophonist Matt Marantz, drummer Alex Kautz, percussionist Phillip Gillette, and guitarist Romero Lubambo. 

Pianist, vocalist, and composer Abelita Mateus is a rising star in the next generation of Brazilian jazz. Mateus is the current pianist for the Dizzy Gillespie Afro-Cuban Experience, and she has performed with Paquito D’Rivera, John Lee, Eric Alexander, Larry Coryell, Claudio Roditi, Hermeto Pascoal, and many others. Her debut album, Vivenda, came out just last year in 2017 and reached No. 24 on the Jazz Week charts. Tonight will be the official album release show for her new recording, entitled Mixed Feelings, and she’s bringing many of the same musicians featured on the record. It’s a personal album from Mateus that also speaks to a core component of the blues that Jazz at Lincoln Center celebrates: persistent optimism in the face of adversity and uncertainty. Join us at Dizzy’s to hear the latest in New York’s flourishing Brazilian jazz scene.
