Desert City Jazz is a full-size, 17-piece jazz ensemble (5 saxes, 4 trumpets, 4 trombones, piano, bass, drums, vibes/percussion) comprised of many of the best jazz musicians in the Phoenix area’s LGBT and Friends community. Our director is LaShaun Tweedie.
This song was going to be part of our “Evening of Latin Jazz” concert last spring but sadly we had to postpone that. We can’t wait to perform this show live for you when it’s safe! But until then, let Desert City Jazz transport you to Rio’s sunny world-famous beaches with this swinging arrangement of Antonio Carlos Jobim’s classic “The Girl from Ipanema.”
Desert City Jazz is not rehearsing or performing at this time due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. The health and safety of our members and our audience is our top priority.
Please consider joining our email list so that we can let you know when performances can be scheduled.
We look forward to the day when it will be safe to gather in public again to enjoy live music together. Until that time, please be careful, stay home as much as you can, and wear a mask when you do go out.
