The Sacred Heart University Academic Music Program presents Prof. Joe Carter and the Brazilian Jazz All Stars in a tribute concert celebrating the music of renown Brazilian music composer, Antonio Carlos Jobim. This is the 2nd Annual Sacred Heart University “Jobimfest”.

The concert will feature:

Joe Carter (USA) – violao (brazilian acoustic guitar)

Hendrik Meurkens (Germany) – harmonica

Ali Ryerson (USA) – flutes

Paul Lieberman (USA & Brazil) – woodwinds

David Finck (USA) – acoustic bass

Nanny Assis (Brazil) – percussion


This international group performs Jobim’s compositions, staying true to the original melodies and maintaining Jobim’s vision for his compositions but, at the same time, adding the North American Jazz aspect of improvisation.  This allows the performers the ability to interpret Jobim’s music and apply their musical personalities to the music, creating a very distinctive and original sound.


Prof. Joe Carter is the director of Sacred Heart’s Academic Music Program and has been a SHU faculty member since 1987.
