I am honored to have won the Brazilian International Press Award together with Antonio Adolfo for our performance with the Antonio Adolfo – Hendrik Meurkens Quartet feat. Jamie Ousley and Carlomagno Araya. Antonio and I will be doing a number of shows in the NYC-area in June and July plus we will be recording a new CD that will also feature Carol Saboya.
It is a great pleasure to be able to work with Antonio, he is my direct link to the true Bossa Nova feel. When I bring in my jazz ideas, he brazilianizes them. Look out for more gigs and the new CD!
