This musical ensemble offers a unique, interesting and international repertoire. Whether as a duo, trio or quintet, Frances Livings' Ipanema Lounge features an eclectic mix of some of the best jazz musicians from L.A., fronted by the multi-lingual singer Frances Livings. Their repertoire is a sensual and enticing blend of Mediterranean and Latin jazz in English, French, Spanish and Portuguese driven by creative and infectious grooves. Their music performances express such a rich atmosphere of cultural diversity that they guarantee to carry you along on an emotional journey – loved by both jazz enthusiasts and those who never considered themselves jazz fans!

Backed by incredible rhythmic talent on bass and percussion, the core of 'Frances Livings' Ipanema Lounge' features the sultry voice of the Nu-jazz singer Frances Livings and the harmonious tones of the classical guitarist, arranger and composer Greg Porée who was the lead guitarist on the hit show 'Dancing with the Stars' for 16 seasons!

What makes Frances Livings' Ipanema Lounge so special, is their musicianship and musical style. Accompanied by top musicians from Los Angeles, Frances sings the beautiful Bossa Nova songbook: Many compositions by the Brazilian composer Antônio Carlos Jobim - as well as popular chansons in French, jazz in Spanish and Portuguese. Their repertoire ranges from soft ballads to high energy Bossa Nova and world jazz songs. Whether as a duo or quintet, they bring out the colours of these meanwhile classical tunes of the 1940's and 60's by arranging them in a contemporary Latin-jazz style.

Never losing touch with the intentions of the original tune, their sophisticated interpretation of standards like 'Corcovado' or 'The Girl From Ipanema' (being some of the most well known songs), perfectly capture the mood of the time, infused with an easy-going, contemplative and seductive Lounge-jazz feeling.

This music is so rich in options, in sound and performance, that this ensemble is ideal for any concert setting: Depending on your venue and event, YOU decide on the number of musicians you would like to book. Frances Livings Ipanema Lounge can be booked as:
– a duo (voice and guitar) for smaller intimate settings - also if you are working with a limited budget
– a trio (voice, guitar or piano and bass) for medium sized venues
– a five piece ensemble (voice, guitar, bass, percussion, saxophone or piano) plus other musicians/instruments, like bandneon

"The Ipanema Lounge project gives you the sweet sounds of Brazilian music that are sure to please."
~ Paul Anderson, KJAZZ 91.5
