Our next live broadcast from KUVO’s Bonfils-Stanton Performance Studio features Italian vocalist Mafalda Minnozzi with guitarist Paul Ricci, on Thursday, September 7 at 7:00 p.m.

KUVO Studio Club members, be sure to RSVP when you get the email invitation. Space is limited.

This broadcast event is a sneak preview of the yet-to-be-released album, “Natural Impression.” Paul & Malfalda will also be performing at the Rocky Mountain Archtop Festival in Arvada, Colo. on September 9 and 10, and at The Muse Performance Space in Lafayette, Colo. on September 15.

Mafalda came up through Italy’s great classic tradition from Rome’s #1 cabaret “La Cabala” to RAI TV’s #1 show “Uno Mattina”. From 1996, a fateful invitation to Brazil resulted in her ongoing touring and recording career there, finding her onstage in major clubs, festivals, theaters and TV and in performance with Milton Nascimento, Guinga, Leny Andrade, and Roberto Menescal among many others while releasing some 25 albums. Over the past eight years, Mafalda has been based in New York alongside her guitarist/arranger Paul Ricci performing at Birdland, Mezzrow and NYU.

A classically trained guitarist, Paul Ricci lived in Brazil for 20 years, collaborating, arranging and producing music for clubs, concert halls, recordings, stage and screen with players from around Latin America, the Caribbean and Africa, including Astrud and Bebel Gilberto, Harry Belafonte, Bobby Sanabria, Coumba Sidibe and others.

The Minnozzi – Ricci duo brings an unprecedented command to the amalgam of Bossa with classic world songbooks for a virtuosic and exciting interplay in one global jazz style.

It’s Mafalda Minnozzi with Paul Ricci, LIVE on KUVO, on the air, on the stream, on the app and on KUVO’s YouTube Channel, Thursday, September 7 at 7:00 p.m.

LIVE performances on KUVO JAZZ are supported by Bonfils Stanton Foundation, Drum City Guitarland, Grace Design Pro Audio, Listen Up, Schmitt Music – Englewood, and made possible by KUVO’s Studio Club and Beat Collective members.
