They will take you on a musical journey from a Parisian bistro to a plaza in the heart of Rio, and back home again to your front porch.  Features jazz/choro mandolinist Will Patton with a symphony violinist who also plays bluegrass and hot swing, add a string bass player who came of age working the Chicago blues clubs with the likes o Howlin "Wolf and Buddy Guy" a guitarist equally at home with flat picking tunes and fiery Gypsy jazz solos, supported by a contradance clarinetist also adept at Balkan dance music.  The highly experienced Ensemble deftly blends fiery Brazilian sambas and folk waltzes, gentle chords and hot Gypsy jazz into a seamless whole, focusing on high energy improvisation and group.
