Kristine Mills CD Release

Award-winning vocalist and songwriter, Kristine Mills is proud to announce the upcoming release of her 6th cd, BOSSAtoo.  It’s not #2 as in the second bossa album to follow bossanovafied, but Bossa (also) to include the range of styles within Brazilian music. The challenge of exploring the range within the Brazilian context propelled Mills to write variations on Samba (3/4 and classic 4/4), Afoxê, Partido Alto, Baião and Bossa Nova. You can purchase the cd prior the October 9 release at the show.
 
Kristine Mills (vocals/guitar) Winner of the Houston Press Music Awards, Best Female Vocalist and Best Songwriter, Kristine Mills was also a Houston Press Rocks off 100 - Houston’s Most Distinguished Artist. She was a recipient of the Houston Arts Alliance for Established Individual Artists Grant. Mills won a Gold REMI Award for her soundtrack written for the documentary film Collector’s Waltz. In addition to her recording career, Mills played sold-out shows in theaters and performing arts centers as guest vocalist with the Duke Ellington Orchestra and headliner for the Brazilian International Jazz Festival Tours in Brazil. She regularly performs in New York at the Metropolitan Room and Zinc Bar, along with other venues throughout the US. BOSSAtoo is Mills’ 6th album.
Paul Frazier (bass) has been the touring/studio bassist and vocalist in David Byrne's (of the Talking Heads) band. Frazier has worked with many other artists and producers, such as Sharon Corr (The Corrs), Arrested Development, Michael Tolcher, Lucy Woodward, Idina Menzel, Imani Coppola, Grace Weber, Shawn Colvin, St. Vincent, Funky Poets (co-leader), Chaka Khan, Joss Stone, Digable Planets, Cab and Chris Calloway, Reza Khan “Love Diaries” (featuring Andy Snitzer and Phillipe Saisse) and more. His credits also include music for TV and film.
 
Klaus Mueller (piano) Whether he’s creating orchestral arrangements for Herbie Hancock, accompanying Leny Andrade, or playing piano in a jazz club with the Portinho Trio, diversity is the serendipitous theme of the music and life of New York-based musician Klaus Mueller. Born in Germany and raised in Japan, Chile, and Brazil, this renowned pianist, composer, arranger, and educator began playing piano at age three. His eclectic background gave this classically trained musician the gift of open mindedness; a natural ease with styles ranging from modern to Brazilian jazz, contemporary to avant-garde. In 2003, the orchestral arrangements Mueller produced (in collaboration with Robert Sadin) for jazz legend Herbie Hancock for the “Gershwin’s World” tour were performed by the Chicago Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic, and many other orchestras across the world. On his 2012 album release Far-Faraway he performs with legendary jazz bassist Ron Carter and the iconic Brazilian drummer Portinho.
 
Porthino (drums) Born in Brazil, Portinho moved to the United States in the early 1970s. He has played with many of the greats in jazz, like: Tania Maria, Gato Barbieri, Paquito D’Rivera, and many others, including: Airto Moreira, Harry Belafonte, Dom Salvador, Astrud Gilberto, Michel Camilo, Ron Carter, Nancy Wilson and Eliane Elias. “Whether Portinho is playing at the world famous Blue Note or the underground cellar spot (downtown New York City) called the Zinc Bar, you can bet your last dollar he is going to swing the band,” says Rob
