Jazzy Nights return at Davis Art Center

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

The 2020 – 2021 Jazzy Nights Concert Series begins in December at the Sidney and Berne Davis Art Center and features some of the best modern performers and musicians in the Jazz genre. ChimyTina presents A Very ChimyTina Christmas on Friday, Dec. 18.
A Very ChimyTina Christmas, their holiday album, shows off the best of youthful creativity, that gracefully productive muse presenting old and well-worn music in new and exciting ways. DaSilva and Chmielinski possess a deeply embraced and realized musical approach that is surprising and compelling.
Dan “Chimy” Chmielinski and Martina DaSilva are New York based jazz musicians who began making music together in 2014.
“ChimyTina” is their collaborative project, featuring bass and vocal duo arrangements of some of their favorite songs. The “band” ChimyTina is nominally vocalist Martina DaSilva and bassist Dan Chmielinski, the name a clever eutection of surnames.
DaSilva is a New York City native, broadly educated, who draws from early jazz, opera, and chamber music when assembling a program. Her association with Scott Bradlee’s PostModern Jukebox brought DaSilva national and international attention while also informing her arranging and orchestrating abilities.
Chmielinski holds both undergraduate and graduate degrees from the Juilliard School. He is a member of pianist Joey Alexander’s trio, rounded out with drummer Ulysses Owens, Jr. Both DaSilva and Chmielinski are in their mid-20s, promising much more inventive and entertaining music for the future.
The 2020 – 2021 Jazzy Nights Series also includes the Glenn Crytzer Quartet on Jan. 29 and The Dan Miller-Lew DeGatto Quintet on Feb. 12.
For all concerts, cocktails begin at 6:30 p.m. and the performance starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $45 for general admission (or $120 for the series). A table of four is $225 per show or a table of 8 VIP seats is $450.
The Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center is located at 2301 First St. in the heart of the downtown Fort Myers River District.
