Caffè Musica presents Instrumental Ladies of Jazz, Friday, April 12th, 7-9pm, $10.00 cover: We are very pleased to feature some of Seattle’s finest female jazz musicians in this series. This month we are please to welcome back host Ann Reynolds (piano) who will team up with the very talented Jamie Maschler (accordion). The last time they played this show sold out quickly so please make your dinner reservations early to ensure a table.
Jamie Maschler is an incredibly versatile musician who has played the accordion since she was four. She possesses a command of classical composers such as Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff, but is equally proficient in the rock, pop, and Brazilian music. She studied with three-time Latin Grammy Nominee Jovino Santos Neto and Brazilian culture continues to inspire her current projects.
As a full-time accordionist she has played with the Seattle Symphony at Benaroya Hall and is a member of Seattle’s only forró band - En Canto, as well the duo, Gabe-Hall Rodrigues - Creosote. Jamie is a frequent guest performer and presenter of workshops on stylized Brazilian and Tango music at numerous festivals. Jamie works with accordion manufacturer Petosa Accordions, where she is able to share her passion and actively participate in the reinvention and face of the traditional Instrument.
Ann Reynolds is a composer, piano player and educator. She has played in NW Jazz community since mid 1990s, but is perhaps best known for her Cuban music. In 2014 she released a CD, Para Cuba Con Amor, of her own Cuban music compositions, covering a wide set of genres. She has also played in jazz big bands (SWOJO) for many years and teaches private piano lessons.
