Wilton Library’s Hot & Cool: Jazz at the Brubeck Room concert lives up to its name when Wilton resident Arthur Lipner performs with Brasilian Vibes on Saturday, May 21, from 7:30 to 9 p.m. Along with Nanny Assis and vocalist Vanessa Falabella, Arthur sets the room on fire with his infectious interpretation of this celebrated South American sound.
Lipner and Assis released Brasilian Vibes in 2010 and it was nominated for Album of the Year by the Brasilian Press Awards. This band is an outgrowth of the work coming from that album and musicians gigging for five years. With the visual excitement and artistic energy of Lipner's vibes/marimba and the spiritual berimbau/vocals of Carlos Dias, Brasilian Vibes is a unique presentation of Brazilian music and culture. The energy from these performances gets concertgoers moving in their seats and dancing in the aisles.
