MUSIC Rogério Boccato Quarteto: CD Release "No Old Rain" May 13 @ 4:00 PM (Tarrrytown) May 17 @ 8:00 PM (Manhattan)
The sounds in ‘No Old Rain’ transcend space and time, allowing the listener to discover unique musical paths.” Toninho Horta
Leading his own group, Rogério arrives at the release of his debut recording as a leader – No Old Rain (coming out May 25th on Red Piano Records). With his quartet, Rogério breaks out of the traditional jazz mold, collectively weaving form and structure out of the disparate threads of each member’s creative input, using motifs from each song as springboards for spontaneous group compositions. The result of this open- eared deconstruction is a reverent, impressionistic vision of each song. The album is a warmly-colored Brazilian Rorschach test viewed through a much-loved second-hand kaleidoscope.
CINEMA Soccer Film Fest: "Nossa Chape", by Jeff Zimbalist May 24 @ 7:00 PM Scandinavia House
101 Min | USA + Brazil | 2018 | English Subtitles | Directed by Jeff Zimbalist + Michael Zimbalist
In the wake of the 2016 Chapecoense airplane crash that claimed all but three of the players' lives, the team and the city were divided about how to handle the tragedy: Should they focus on keeping the memory of the dead alive? Or move on? And as the team travels to play the championship game that the ill-fated roster should have played, can everyone come together around a common goal?
