Maria Mendes, vocals

GREG DIAMOND

Brooklyn guitarist Greg Diamond has been an emerging force in recent years and is now situated at the forefront of a new generation of contemporary latin jazz artists in New York City. Endowed with technical prowess and, above all, an impassioned distinguishable sound characterized by his mixed Latin American origins, Diamond puts forth an attractive and innovative concept of latin fusion in a modern jazz context.



Greg and his band have been seen performing at venues such as: The Blue Note, Iridium Jazz Club, Joe’s Pub, Smalls Jazz Club, Nublu, and Zinc Bar; not to mention numerous festival presentations, among them: The Madrid International Jazz Festival, Barranquijazz Festival, Jimmy Glass Jazz Festival, Teatro Libre Jazz Festival, Jazz al Parque Festival, and the Nublu Jazz Festival. In 2007 he was a semi-finalist at The Gibson International Jazz Guitar Competition hosted by The Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland.

Both Diamond’s debut “Dançando Com Ale” (Chasm 2008) as well as his second release “Conduit” (Dot Time 2012) have garnered him praise among critics world-wide:

Diamond has shared the stage with Seamus Blake, Henry Cole, Antonio Hart, Jon Benitez, Stacy Dillard, Emilio Solla, Michael Mossman, Don Friedman, Gretchen Parlato, Asha Puthli, and many others.


MARIA MENDES

Maria Mendes’ sold out performances in Switzerland, Brazil, Portugal and Holland have been drawing the attention of the jazz media worldwide and have gotten great reviews considering her to be one of the most promising singers in the European Jazz scene.



The Portuguese vocalist is remarkable for her crystal clear voice, creative and exciting phrasing and outstanding vocal virtuosity. Her unique vocal abilities have been praised internationally by jazz critics and jazz musicians, awarding her with significant international jazz vocal prizes.

Maria comes from a dynasty of Portuguese musicians and is educated a Jazz vocalist in Porto, Brussels, and Rotterdam.

Her culturally rich background has supplied her with the richness of the classical music, the Bossa Nova’s gentle grooves and the American jazz classics of the early 50s.

Born in Porto (Portugal) and living in Rotterdam (Netherlands) since 2007, it was during her master thesis at Rotterdam’s Codarts university that Maria sought to explore her passion for Jazz and discover her connection with the Bossa Nova. These studies have given her the perfect conditions for the achievement on her uniqueness in style. This is probably what led the international press to classify the sound of Maria Mendes’s debut album as an “Exotic jazz with a Portuguese nostalgia”.

Her debut album “Along the Road” has been released worldwide in May 2012 by the New York based jazz label, DotTime Records. With the international release tour of “Along the Road” Maria has achieved a loyally following audience in each country she performs.

“Sparkling debut! Mendes makes clear she has absolutely nothing to prove”
-ALL ABOUT JAZZ (USA)

“Maria Mendes singing is wonderful”
-DORI CAYMMI (Brazil)

“A very honest and moving debut. Maria is a wonderful singer with a beautiful talent and her Along the Road is an album sung from the heart.”
-Sheila Jordan (USA)
