“Orlando Haddad and Patricia King are succeeding in bringing a new wave of Brazilian music to Philadelphia … the music is hot” • The Philadelphia Inquirer
Minas’ longevity speaks for itself. With over four decades performing in a variety of formats, their professionalism and versatility, from the duo to ensemble, to orchestra and big band, has placed Minas in high demand. From small intimate settings to large venues, Orlando and Patricia have enchanted audiences with their magical and unique sound, artistry and warmth, where the poetry of their lives is heard in every note. Minas reflects a perfect musical marriage with a stage presence and chemistry that only a lifetime can produce.
Minas takes Brazilian and American roots to create a sound that is fresh and innovative, from ballads tinged with melancholic traits of Blues and Choro, to Folk coasting on the subtle coolness of a Bossa Nova pulse, to upbeat Sambas elaborated with instrumental jazz improvisation, scat singing and whimsical whistling. With a catalogue of 8 recordings released on their label Bluezul and a collection of over 100 songs, Orlando and Patricia’s compositions have been compared to classics by Cole Porter and Antonio Carlos Jobim. Capturing the essence of great songwriting with memorable melodies, inventive harmonies, and poetic lyrics, the music of Minas is engaging and timeless.
With that rare combination of originality & a heartfelt nod to the integrity of Songwriters whose stylings have become a part of our Standards Catalogue, these Minas continues a great musical story showcased in the blending of American Jazz & Brazilian Songwriting, & the collaboration between Jazz Saxophonist Stan Getz & Guitarist João Gilberto.
Be there in this Showroom for a magical Jazz Evening of Jazz from the greats…Getz & Gilberto… with Minas Quintet.
