Blue Note Brazilian Jazz Brunch: Nanny Assis & Friends

**Price includes brunch, music and a drink.**

Nanny Assis was born in the northeastern Brazilian city of Salvador, Bahia in 1969. Anybody who sees Nanny performing immediately feels that music for him is not just a career; rather, it is how he translates rhythms and notes into pure essence, often snatching audiences away, or other times energizing them enough to stand up and simply dance “and sweat until you can’t sweat no more,” to use Bob Marley’s lyrics. His ability to run smoothly through virtually all kinds of music makes Nanny a quite noticeable and gifted artist. And that is what he is, a gifted artist.

Nanny’s appeal and personality have brought him to several parts ofthe world, where, indifferent of the venue, he has deeply touched people through his music. After 1999, when he moved to New York City, where he is now widely known and have established weekly presentations in some of the city’s illustrious venues, he has made presentations all over Europe, including Italy, France, Switzerland, The Netherlands, and England. Very honorably, Nanny once performed at Queen Elizabeth’s Hall, in London. For him, though, it does not make a difference if the stage on which he is playing is the main ground of an impressive setting. In prominent or unknown places, he dedicates the same amount of talent and respect for his audiences. That in itself singles him out. In New York City, his artistic hub, Nanny has made presentations at Birdland, Zinc Bar, B.B. King and Blue Note. For the past decade, he is the sole voice on Sundays at SOB’s, with his traditional brunch concert at one venue that’s known for opening the doors for Brazilian music.

In 2011 and 2017, he was the recipient of the prestigious Brazilian International Press Award as “Best Singer of the Year.” Also, in 2017 Mr Assis receive in Tokyo Japan the award of Brazilian Ambassador on Music and Arts with hundreds of votes cast through the Internet earned Nanny two times the first stage in musical recognition with the Brazilian community around the globe. Nanny Assis has recorded three albums: “Brazilian Vibes,” with Arthur Lipner, “Double Rainbow.” and Requinte Trio Honey and Air in collaboration with John DiMartino and Janis Siegel from The Manhattan Transfer
