Fleurine in the Theater
September 22 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Fleurine, vocalist, composer, lyricist and Brazilian music authority, has gained a devoted international following for her “warm, enveloping sound and gentle rhythmic drive” (Los Angeles Times) and her “cunning brand of vocal wizardry” (JazzTimes). The Dutch born , Portugal reared polyglot who has resided in the US for the past 20 years went on to become the first singer authorized to translate into English the lyrics of the legendary Chico Buarque, for her spellbinding 2008 Sunnyside release San Francisco (produced by Robert Sadin). She was also the sixth lyricist worldwide, following in the footsteps of Abbey Lincoln and Jon Hendricks, to write and record lyrics to music by Thelonious Monk, specifically her adaptation of “Think of One” for her EmArcy/Universal debut album Meant to Be! (featuring Tom Harrell, Christian McBride, Dutch guitar great Jesse van Ruller and more, with liner notes by Hendricks himself).
She has also composed lyrics for songs by Kenny Dorham, Curtis Fuller, Joshua Redman Tom Harrell, Thad Jones and others.
