Music in the Meetinghouse at First Church Fairfield presents Brazilian jazz . The Joe Carter Samba Rio Trio celebrates the music of Brazil: Samba, Bossa Nova, Choro, Baiao and more. Their repertoire features jazz interpretations of songs by Brazil’s classic composers such as Jobim, Santos, Bandolim, Bonfa, Pixinguinha,, Baden Powell, Barroso and others. “A guitarist whose playing is graced with clarity and speech-like phrasing, Carter has chosen to express his embrace of both North and South America in an intimate trio setting. This format is ideal for Carter's conversational, story-telling mode of playing...Mutual exchanges act as a catalyst for his fresh ideas." - Hartford Courant
