Maria Mendes featuring John Beasley

Jazz Maastricht & Theater aan het Vrijthof - Maria Mendes ft. John Beasley

This December beloved Portuguese singer Maria Mendes will bring the sun back to Maastricht! Light on her feet, and multi-faceted, backed by her trio Maria Mendes is joined by jazz great John Beasley – legendary Emmy & Grammy nominated, former pianist of Miles Davis.

They’ll be performing music from Maria’s latest album- created in collaboration with Beasley and the Metropole Orkest. This album combines Portuguese traditional Fado with a new conceptualization of jazz. The central theme of Fado is saudade: that difficult-to-translate concept meaning something like nostalgia or deep longing for a much-loved person who is longer there.

Maria’s takes the age-old theme of love and longing, and re-imagines it for the present day. Her captivating voice, combined with Beasley’s lush piano arrangements, are sure to make for a magnificent concert with touch of modernity, and a romantic flair!
