Luisa Maita

Sultry, seductive and infused with that inimitable samba swing, the music of Luísa Maita embodies the modern spirit of Brazil. Inspired by the bustling urban life found in her native city of São Paulo, her first album, Lero-Lero, has a contemporary vibe with influences from alternative pop and downtempo electronic music melded with an acoustic foundation deeply rooted in samba, bossa nova and MPB.

The Willie Sordillo Trio is comprised of Willie Sordillo on alto saxophone, voice and musical direction, and two other musicians (piano and bass) on a rotating basis.

While jazz and gospel music are the group’s mainstays, repertoire for Jazz Worship is very broad, encompassing hymnody, folk, blues, popular and world music traditions. The musical direction on a given week is determined by the music’s relevance to the themes addressed by the sermon.

Preludes begin at 5:50 PM, worship begins at 6:00 and ends at 6:50 PM
