Latin Grammy-winning jazz Leny Andrade has been compared to Sarah Vaughan by The New York Post. The 65 year-old vocalist has been involved with music since her childhood in Rio de Janeiro. Her musical career started to gain acknowledgment in the 1960s, when she toured around Brazil with the famous male singer Pery Ribeiro and the group Bossa Tres. After spending five years in Mexico, she started dedicating herself to avant-garde samba and samba-jazz styles, having earned international recognition and played with Bill Evans, Paquito D’Rivera, Francis Hime and Joao Donato. In Tokyo, the Brazilian music living legend will be joined by the band Sambop, with Paulinho Trompete (trumpet), Widor Santiago (saxophones), Hamleto Stamato (piano), Ney Conceicao (bass) and Erivelton Silva (drums).
