Pisces Trio features a blend of jazz standards and Brazilian popular songs ideal for cafes, wine bars and private events.
Sophia, Jeff and Dinnen have been playing together in the Brazilian jazz and pop quintet Grupo Amoroso for more than ten years. More recently we formed Pisces Trio (we all were born under that sign) so we could play smaller, more intimate venues and expand our repertoire to include American jazz classics, while continuing to explore the varied forms of Brazilian popular music such as bossa nova, choro and MPB. Sophia is the trio's lead vocalist and counts as influences Karrin Allyson and Susanna McCorkle with their explorations of the Brazilian songbook from solid jazz foundations. Jeff is equally at home playing guitar or bass and enjoys singing the tunes of such fine composers as Djavan and Ivan Lins. Dinnen also pursues dual instrumental interests, a lifelong involvement with the piano and more recently with Brazilian hand percussion, particularly the pandeiro (Brazilian tambourine).
