(Bradenton, Fla., March 26, 2015) – State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota (SCF) music faculty member Marc Mannino and guest artists O Som Do Jazz will present an evening of Bossa Nova favorites and original tunes by David Manson at 8 p.m. April 9 in Neel Performing Arts Center at SCF Bradenton, 5840 26th St. W.

O Som Do Jazz (the sound of jazz in Portuguese) recaptures the grace, energy and spirit of 1960s and ’70s Brazilian Bossa Nova, MPB (Música Popular Brasileira) and samba-jazz.

This international group of musicians includes Alejandro Arenas, bass; David Cubillos, piano and SCF alumnus originally from Colombia; Austin Vickrey, sax; Mark Feinman, drums; and David Manson, trombone. SCF music professor Marc Mannino joins the group on guitar.  O Som Do Jazz performs in festivals, concerts and special events, and its music has been included in the HBO series “Looking.”
