Luciano Antonio, guitar/vocal
Luiz Ewerling, drums 
Jack Zara, bass 
Adrian Ruiz, piano

Luciano takes the audience on a tour of Brazil by presenting a wide variety of Brazilian compositions combined with his own originals. His performances explore the rich melodic, harmonic and rhythmic vocabularies employed by the delicious music of his homeland, and range from simple solo guitar pieces to dynamic, percussive arrangements with the entire ensemble. Luciano released two albums of original music Vida De Artista - An Artist's Life in 2011, Sem Palavras – Without Words in 2015. In 2019 he released his third album: Luciano Antonio Quintet - Live At Jazz Showcase (w/special guests Breno Sauer and Neusa Sauer). Luciano is a sweet, gentle soul, and his spirit flows directly through his beautiful music. He has absolutely placed his stamp on the Brazilian music scene in Chicago.

We'll be recording this performance for Chicago Jazz Live on WDCB, so you'll be part of the studio audience! See you there. -SR
