A versatile performer who sings in English, Spanish and Portuguese, John captivates his audiences with rich tones and a smooth, warm delivery. John?s repertoire includes romantic ballads with moving lyrics and haunting melodies, swinging standards, smooth Bossa Novas, and popular Brazilian and South American songs less-known to audiences in the United States. His natural, easy approach to Brazilian music results from extensive visits to Brazil. His experience as an instrumentalist (trombonist) is conveyed in his phrasing and interpretation. Most recently, John performed at OSPAC?s 2009 Summer Music Festival. John is backed by world class artists: John Lee on bass, who was Dizzy Gillespie’s long time friend and bassist, Don Braden on saxophone and flute, Gordon Lane on drums, Nicholas Rolfe on keyboards, Roy Assaf on piano and Cafe on percussion.
