SERGIO MENDES COMES TO THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL | MORCHEEBA OPENS
FRIDAY AND SATURDAY, JULY 30 AND 31, 2010, AT 8:30 PM

Brazilian pop maestro Sergio Mendes comes to the Hollywood Bowl for two nights, Friday and Saturday, July 30 and 31, at 8:30 p.m. Opening for and complementing Mendes' sound is the return of the newly-reunited Morcheeba, in its Hollywood Bowl debut.

For his set at the Bowl, Mendes, who is credited with being the first to bring Brazilian music to the masses, performs a combination of his timeless hits and selections from his high-energy, just-released CD Bom Tempo ("good time" in Portuguese). The new CD highlights fun, new repertoire, as well as Brazilian rhythms and artists in a series of up-tempo tracks.

Morcheeba, on its first major tour since welcoming vocalist Skye Edwards back into the fold after a six-year separation, brings to audiences its unique blend of music influenced by trip hop, rock, rhythm and blues, and pop. The group's latest CD, Blood Like Lemonade, was released in the US on July 13.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
