A French singer and a Brazilian guitarist teamed up for a charming duo on the final night of Centrum’s Jazz Port Townsend 2013. Both Cyrille Aimée and Diego Figueiredo have busy solo careers but they find time to tour together since they first met at the Montreux Jazz Contest. They perform some Brazilian tunes and some French chansons, plus American standards . The combination of virtuosity and creative interplay won many new fans for the duo during their appearance at last Summer’s festival in Port Townsend.

The complete concert will be broadcast on Sunday, January 5 at 2 PM Pacific on 88.5 KPLU, concluding the series of broadcasts recorded last July at Jazz Port Townsend. The concert will also be streamed live at kplu.org, and will also be available as a podcast following the broadcast.

Jazz Northwest is recorded and produced by Jim Wilke exclusively for 88.5 KPLU. The program airs Sundays at 2 PM Pacific.
