UVMC welcomes Michael Zsoldos to the faculty
with a concert alongside guitarist Jason Ennis. The Jota Sete Duo brings
together Zsoldos, a saxophonist with an impressive sound and a broad background
in jazz, classical and popular music, and Ennis, a musician with a unique
sound, deep groove, sensitive feel, and a diverse background in Jazz, Blues,
Brazilian, and Classical music. His interest in Brazilian music led him to
adopt as his primary instrument a uniquely Brazilian Violão de Sete
Cordas (7-string classical guitar), a staple of the Choro and Samba traditions.
In this concert, the duo plays arrangements by Ennis of jazz classics and
Brazilian music, as well as original compositions.
