Since their debut in 2003, Com Você has been revisiting the classics of Brazilian music and offering them in fresh, new perspective. The New York-based group is led by Polish-born jazz vocalist and arranger Maggie Grebowicz and saxophonist Stan Killian. The name of this collaboration means “with you” and, as Cadence magazine writes, “Com Você is with us from start to finish as they pursue dreamy landscapes and fill each one with rhythms that sashay eloquently… Bossa nova and samba have been around for quite some time; yet, this ensemble delivers each piece with a freshness that proves memorable.” The singer switches freely between Portuguese, Polish, English, and word-less vocal, and arrangements feature rich sax-vocal interaction and a variety of complex rhythmic patterns. The group also revisits compositions by American jazz artists whose work engages Brazilian traditions, like Wayne Shorter, Pat Metheny, and Jack DeJohnette. Peter Westbrook writes in jazzreview.com: “Overall it is remarkable how these seemingly diverse elements fit together…. It all works, as the singer bends each piece to her unique styling, hands it off to the various soloists, and then reclaims it for a final rendering…. For lovers of both jazz and Brazilian music, this is something fresh that deserves a hearing.” Their latest repertoire includes music by contemporary Brazilian composers Lô Borges, Arto Lindsay, and Leo Minax, orchestrated and arranged for the acoustic jazz quintet format.

Originally from Texas, they have performed at the best jazz venues in Houston, Austin, and San Antonio, as well as the state’s major jazz festivals. Today the group is based in New York City and performs regularly at the legendary 55 Bar, as well as all over the mid-Atlantic region. They debuted in San Francisco and Los Angeles as the opening band for Brazilian singer/songwriter Zé Renato on his first US tour.

They are avaliable in several formats, from an acoustic trio for your most intimate gathering (check out "Call Me") to a six piece band with drums and percussion.
