Moises Borges Brazilian Jazz Quartet

 Friday, August 14, 2020 
7:00pm-8:30pm  
Steele Memorial Bandstand

Based in Cleveland, Moises Borges is a gifted guitarist and vocalist born in Bahia, Brazil. His soothing voice and charm make for a wonderful evening of entertainment for all lovers of Brazilian Jazz.

Currently recording a new album of original work with renowned international guests, Borges has become a prolific performer in the Northeast Ohio scene in recent years. He is an excellent storyteller and vivid performer who plays mostly in the Samba and Bossa Nova tradition, interpreting his original songs besides classics by Jobim, Gilberto, Bosco and many others. Far away from his native Brazil, the music of his homeland is very much alive when he is on stage.

For his Lakeside performance, Borges will be joined by Matthew Horwich (saxophone), Kip Reed (bass) and Dylan Moffitt (percussion).

Horwich has worked throughout the Midwest as a saxophonist. He has been a part of small and large groups, playing jazz, blues, swing, Bossa Nova, Motown, soul, funk, pop, dance, disco, Reggae and classical music.

Reed’s understanding of Brazilian, African and other world-beat music combined with his background in jazz, funk and popular music make him one of the most versatile bass players on the scene today. In his 40-year performance career, he has toured Europe, Asia, South America and Africa.

Moffitt is often recognized for his versatility as a percussionist in the classical and world-music genres. He currently plays with the Lakeside Symphony Orchestra and serves as principal percussionist and frequent soloist with the Firelands Symphony, where in 2013, he founded his ‘Drumming with Dylan’ educational outreach program.

Masks required. Please practice safe social distancing. While some seating is provided in Bettinger Park, guests are encouraged to bring their own chairs and blankets. In the case of inclement weather, this event will be cancelled. Please note change of time due to earlier sunset.
