Session 4 - Guitarist Diego Figueiredo and Vocalist Cyrille Aimée
The 2014-2015 BendBroadband's Jazz at the Oxford series is brought to you by:
Diego Figueiredo/Cyrille Aimée Quintet
with Randy Porter, Dave Captein & Todd StraitBrazilian guitar virtuoso & distinctive French singer come together for a special show not to be missed
Diego Figueiredo, Guitar
“One of the greatest guitarists I’ve seen in my whole life” (George Benson)
“Diego is a unique musician” (Al De Meola)
Diego is a Brazilian guitarist who is taking the jazz world by storm. Although classically trained, Diego fuses Brazilian rhythms and jazz. He is known for superb technique, timing and imagination. Figueriredo has won numerous international awards and has played with the likes of Larry Coryell. It’s an incredible coup to be able to welcome him to Jazz at the Oxford.
Cyrille Aimée, Vocals
“…one of the most promising jazz singers of her generation” (Will Friedwald, The Wall Street Journal)
“Cyrille’s vocal styling’s are synonymous with music genius” (All About Jazz)
“…a voice like fine whiskey – oaky and smooth, with a hint of smokiness” (The Washington Post)
Winner of the Montreux Jazz Festival’s International Vocal Competition, and the Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition, Cyrille was born in Fontainebleau, France, to a French father and Dominican mother. She was raised in the village of Samois-sur-Seine, the same place where the legendary gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt once lived. As a teenager, Cyrille performed in various Perisian cafes and clubs, and remained in Paris to attend the American School of Modern Music when her parents moved to Singapore. In 2006, she and other musician friends played and sang on street corners across Europe, and then in 2007 offered to play at jazz festivals for food and lodging. She ended up in Switzerland, where she won the Montreux competition, the prize for which included financing of a full-length recording (Cyrille Aimée & the Surreal Band). The rest is history…or history to come, as her first major label release, It’s a Good Day, was released just this last Spring. We are lucky to have her, as Cyrille is a major star in the making.
