AIRTO MOREIRA & FLORA PURIM (USA)
Sunday, April 25, 2020 at 5.00pm Vaba Lava

For admirers of Latin American rhythms and tropical jazz, the names of Flora Purim and Airto Moreira do not need to be introduced anymore, and it is more gratifying to hear legendary top names playing music together on stage for the first time in Estonia. Filled with fresh and classical tunes, the program opens up a colorful palette of fusion-jazz, offering air and space for free improvisation. In Tallinn, hits from the new Six Moreira will be released, as well as unpublished rarities featuring songs from Flora Purim's upcoming album "Flora Brasileira". The star couple is supported by a bass band led by bassist Thiago Espirito Santo.

Flora Purim's extraordinary 6-octave vocal range has brought her many Grammy nominations and, in the early '60s, her creative career has brought her into contact with true jazz legends - Gil Evans, Stan Getz, Chick Corea, Dizzy Gillespie, George Duke, Santana and more. As a Brazilian emigrant, Purim found a new home in New York in 1967, where his talent flourished in the burgeoning and soon-to-be-thrilled electric jazz scene. The notable works of the innovative movement, Chick Corea's "Return to Forever" and "Light as a Feather," have also become classics due to their memorable contributions as a singer. Over the decades, Purim has kept his sound in constant renewal, with his versatile talent harnessing 90s acid-jazz, triphop and broken-beat originals. With her husband Airto Moreira, Flora has recorded over 30 albums and is back on stage with her fresh album after a 14 year break.


One of the founding members of the fusion jazz band Weather Report, Airto Moreira, whose early rhythmic talent, Miles Davis' jazz tunes has been recorded on "Bitches Brew" and Chick Corea's "Return to Forever" and "Light as a Feather". Moreira has played with Cannonball Adderley, John McLaughlin, Keith Jarretti, Al Di Meola, George Duke, Quincy Jones and Herbie Hancock, and his flame is still showing no signs of slowing down. He has also held a  number one position on the charts of JazzTimes, Modern Drummer and Drum Magazine more than 20 times. 


Since 1974, when Airto Moreira and Flora Purim formed their first line-up with Fingers, the creative couple has regularly recorded and released music that listeners have been able to enjoy during their worldwide tours. The tour will bring bassist Thiago Espirito Santo also to the Jazzkaar festival. Throughout his 25-year career as a musician, Santo has found a personalized playing technique that is best expressed through the sounds of a fretless bass. His collaborators include Hermeto Pascoal, George Benson, Joshua Redman and many others. Santo is backed by Bruno Cardozo on piano and Cuca Teixeira on drums.
