Event description

Description

There is no theoretical collection of music that what is known as the Great American Songbook. It is not a physical book, but rather a compilation of songs, their composers, lyricists, instrumentalists and singers identified with music of the 20th Century. Cherished by millions, the Great American Songbook ideology has survived the test of time to become “standards” within the industry. Although referred to as the “American” songbook, many countries have contributed to the notation, and none greater than Brazil. Said to evoke passion, Brazilian music has its own musical identification thanks to Antonio Carlos (Tom) Jobim, and Joᾶo Gilberto.

Steve Homan, a professor of jazz studies in Sacramento CA has performed professionally for over 30 years with such jazz artists as Howard Alden, Herb Ellis, Jimmy Smith, Joe Williams, Ed Thigpen, Hugh Masakela, Art Van Damme, Anita O' Day, and a host of others. Here, with his quintet he brings the two genres face to face with “The Great Brazilian Songbook meets the Great American Songbook,” Joe Gilman on piano, Jeff Minnieweather on drums, Rob Lemas on bass, Steve Homan on guitar, and Francesca Homan on vocals.
