About the Band

A seasoned jazz singer with years on the New York scene, Marietta Benevento offers smooth, playful takes on mainstream jazz standards and fresh-sounding, intimate stylings of the American songbook.

About the Band

From Jobim to Joyce, Jazz Brasileiro is synonymous with Brazilian Jazz, playing both classic bossa nova and a wide range of contemporary Brazilian music. The collaboration between guitarist Tony Cesarano and vocalist Debo Orlofsky highlights exquisitely crafted guitar lines and gorgeously haunting melodies sung in Portuguese and English. The guitar/vocal duo adapts this purest form of bossa nova with singular arrangements and voicings.

Tony Cesarano is a professional guitarist originally from New York City. Tony has done much professional work in New York playing a variety of musical styles from pop and rock to classical and his favorite, jazz. His professional work includes Broadway shows, recordings, and musical tours. He is known by many for his 28 years of playing for the Rockettes at Radio City Musical Hall.

Debo Orlofsky has been a mainstay on the Albuquerque music scene for 25 years. A veteran vocalist of both rock and world-beat bands, Debo's honeyed alto has graced many local projects including the seminal alternative sounds of Splinter Fish, the African dance music of Animal Opera, and the sweet country blues of Alpha Blue.

Tony and Debo bring their passion for the Brazilian repetoire to each performance. If you ask them what their favorite song is, they'll tell you it's the one they're playing.
