**Rescheduled to Saturday, October 24**
Ana Barreiro (drums), Amy K Bormet (piano), Aaron Janik (trumpet), David Wise (sax) and Sezin Ahmet Turkmenoglu (bass).
Always keeping an ear to the ground for women jazz musicians, Amy Bormet was thrilled when she heard of Ana Barreiro in Los Angeles. When they met, there was instant kinship. After myriad concerts and gigs, carpooling to jam sessions, and living room listening sessions, Amy invited Ana to DC to be a part of the Washington Women in Jazz Festival. The duo has continued to play each other’s music, in every context from trio settings to a symphony orchestra. AmyAna is a clear record of their friendship with songs like Bormet’s “Santa Ana Slip,” a swinging bluesy number, and upbeat Brazilian melodies, like Barreiro’s “Saudade.” As the two continue to develop a dialogue between east coast and west coast, swing and the avant-garde, the US and Brazil, there is no place they can’t go together.
