Cyrille and Diego

Cafe Stritch continues to have top notch talent swinging through the doors of this very cool and hip cafe and jazz venue. I received and email from San Jose vocalist Ms. Jackie Gage who wanted me to check this incredible French singer Cyrille Aimee’ she had been following for for almost two years she tells me. Her duet partner and guitarist from Brazil Diego Figueiredo both created a memorable performance with her sultry voice signing Brazilian favorites and originals tunes was more than anyone expected and worth much more than the price of admission. I’m a Hugh fan of Brazilian music from Jobim to Astrud to Marco Valle. Anyone who knows Brazilian music also knows that the guitar is very integral in this form of music. Diego delivered a performance greater than any other performance I have ever heard in more than thirty years of listening to Brazilian music from any other guitarist.
