Angela James will perform some new original songs in Portuguese that are part of a new collection of songs about Salvador da Bahia, Brazil where James and husband/musical collaborator Jordan Martins lived before moving to Chicago. They will also play several interpretations of songs by Erasmos Carlos, a core member of the “Jovem Guarda” movement in Brazilian pop rock of the 1960s & 70s. Nick Mazzarella’s Meridian Trio w/ Matt Ulery and Jeremy Cunninham will play an opening set and join Martins and James for the second set.
Angela James is celebrating her return to performing after having a baby by leading different ensembles every Tuesday night in March at the Hideout. James released her second full length record, Time Will Tell, in March of 2016 and gave birth to a daughter later that year. Each week of the residency will highlight a different concept and feature different collaborators.
All door proceeds of the 14th, 21st, and 28th will be donated to the Southern Poverty Law Center. Middle Brow Brewing is generously sponsoring the residency.
