Our Brazilian Trio has been performing to enthusiastic audiences throughout New York City for the past four (4) years, including regular appearances at Tomi Jazz and Somethin'Jazz in midtown Manhattan, Sylvana's (Harlem) and the Orchard House Cafe (Upper East Side). We perform traditional jazz and Brazilian MPB (Brazilian Popular Music) which includes bossa nova, choro (chorinho) and jazz samba and are especially indebted to the great Brazilian piano trio: Zimbo Trio.

Our repertoire highlights the extraordinary composers of Brazil from the MPB period: Antonio Carlos Jobim, João Donato, Djavan, Baden Powell, Vínicius de Moraes and many others, as well as the earlier traditional Choro masters (Pixighuinha, Jacob de Bandolim etc.). Because of our diverse musical and cultural backgrounds, our sound blends additional influences into this music - including western classical music, traditional jazz, blues, r&b, and world music.

Our trio loves to share this repertoire with audiences and guests. It is our personal wish to make your event or party one you and your guests will enjoy to an unexpected degree; we want to woo you with the beautiful romantic Brazilian melodies so beloved throughout the world and wow you with the passionate and body-swaying rhythms of Brazil as well.

Thank you for checking us out here on Gigmasters. I look forward to hearing from you to discuss your specific needs and desired outcome for your party or event.

warmly,

John Allen Watts

For our wedding, we didn't want the typical DJ playing pop music, we wanted something more classy such as a jazz trio. I found the John Allen Watts Brazilian Trio on here, and immediately they stood out from the other bands. They really were amazing, I can't say how many guests came up and asked who they were because they enjoyed the music so much. They were just who we were looking for, for our reception.They were also a pleasure to deal with: friendly, professional and accommodating. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a jazz trio to play any type of event.
