'Beleza' Brazilian jazz at Sound Bites with Miller, Martin & Ki

Sedona & San Diego jazz, Latin & contemporary vocalist Susannah Martin presents her Brazilian jazz trio, "Beleza" at Sound Bites Grill on Sunday, July 15, 6-9 p.m., for a romantic evening of Latin grooves.

"Beleza," which means "beauty" in Portuguese, plays breezy Brazilian bossa novas and sambas, as well as boleros and other Latin styles, sung in Portuguese, English and Spanish.

Martin, also on percussion, will be joined by Patrick Ki and Eric Miller, both well-known for their recordings, nylon-string guitar playing and song-writing.

Martin is known regionally for her masterful vocal stylings in jazz, Brazilian and pop genres.

"My love affair with Brazilian jazz started 15 years ago, when I first heard it sung in its original Portuguese. The songs sound so beautiful in their native language. We're very excited to share an evening of this music with the public," she explains.

Hailing from the West Coast where her 20-plus-year career was launched, Susannah Martin has sung in numerous bands in Arizona, California, Oregon, Kentucky and on cruise ships. Based in Sedona for the past seven years, Susannah performs regularly with several bands at concerts, clubs and private events. She is described as "...the consummate performer, as talented as she is beautiful ... a true delight to behold," from the Tucson Jazz Society.

Patrick Ki is a formally trained classical and jazz guitarist with two guitar degrees and an extensive history of live playing, composing and teaching.

His love of Brazilian guitar styles shines through in his fine rhythm and harmony. He's known nationally as a recording artist with a lyrical-based sound influenced by his Hawaiian island upbringing.

The passion and fire of Latin music richly colors the instrumental style of Eric Miller, who has traveled to Spain to study the art of flamenco guitar and regularly attends Brazil camp in the Bay Area to hone his craft. Miller's velvety voice in Spanish, Portuguese and English adds an alluring flair to the band's sound.

Sound Bites Grill is located in the Hyatt Pinon Pointe shopping center in uptown Sedona, off of Hwy 89A. This new and exciting venue is open for dining and features live music Thursday through Sunday., (928) 282-2713.
