After many years on Italian stages and TV followed by a lasting career in Brazil that includes numerous CD`s and tours in major cities and theaters and collaborations with, among others, Milton Nascimento, Guinga, Leny Andrade, Paulo Moura, and Martinho Da Vila, singer Mafalda Minnozzi has earned diva status in Brazil. In 2015 she united with New York guitarist Paul Ricci to form the “eMPathia JazzDuo”. Ricci has performed with Astrud Gilberto, Bobby Sanabria, Bebel Gilberto, Harry Belafonte, Dom Um Romao, Hugo Fattoruso as well as many noted sidemen in Latin, African, Jazz and Brazilian styles. The duo`s unique blend draws from the great Italian, Brazilian, French and American songwriters such as Cole Porter, Jobim, Ivan Lins and Morricone among others. Following an extensive concert schedule at theaters and festivals in Italy and Brazil, their first 2015 CD “EMPATHIA” was nominated for Italy`s prestigious “Targa Tenco” award. The duo will be presenting at Trumpets their second CD “INSIDE” (2016) recorded and produced by noted Grammy winner Jeff Jones “the Jedi Master” (www.empathiajazz.com)
Noted Italian Jazz author and critic Gerlando Gatto wrote “…. the duo established an extraordinary musical entity befitting the name“ eMPathia”. In a perfect understanding the two are able to produce a sound that goes far beyond their basic restricted elements … Paul Ricci is surely an underestimated artist gifted with sensitivity, arranging skills and uncommon technique … Mafalda Minnozzi is superb not only for her extraordinary ability to fully express herself in diverse languages, but in the ease with which she is able to make each song she presents truly her own.”
This act will be rescheduled due to impending snowstorm

“An exceptional show! Hernan creates magic with his guitar! One of my favorite musicians!” Kristine Massari, co-owner, Trumpets Jazz Club
Spiced with the exotic traditions that infuse flamenco-gypsy, Middle Eastern, and Mediterranean folk interwoven with textures of classical, jazz, and Latin rhythms, composer and guitarist Hernan Romero’s music is both sophisticated and accessible. It is sensuous, passionate, romantic and inescapably infectious. Inspired by the music of his family from his earliest memory “It’s powerful, flamenco is very strong, and has its influence from the Middle East,” says Romero.
