Jacinta

voz

Aclamada na crítica portuguesa pela sua 'voz quente, redonda, possante' (Miguel Soares, Comércio do Porto), Jacinta recebeu o prémio 'Músico Revelação 2001' do programa Cinco Minutos de Jazz (Antena1 desde 1966). 'Segura, conhecedora' (Emanuel Carneiro, Jornal de Notícias), Jacinta transmite emoção e garra no timbre da sua voz, complementando-a com um swing sólido e natural. Impressionantes intonação e comando vocal destacam-na entre cantores de jazz. Jacinta tem um passado musical pouco comum numa cantora de jazz. Submergindo-se no estudo de música clássica em piano e composição, e até liderando como cantora e compositora um grupo de rock sinfónico, é no mundo do jazz que a sua energia musical encontra plena expressão. Aos 22 anos uma excelente actuação de jazz vocal no programa Chuva de Estrelas impulsionou a sua carreira como cantora, tendo sido solicitada para inúmeros concertos a partir de então. Em 1997 Jacinta mudou-se para Nova Iorque para frequentar a Manhattan School of Music onde foi premiada com bolsa de estudos para realização de Mestrado em Jazz Vocal. Ainda em Nova Iorque Jacinta participou em workshops por grandes nomes do jazz contemporâneo como Maria Schneider, Ed Neumeister, Mark Murphy, Dave Holland e Annie Ross. Prosseguiu estudos de improvisação com Chris Rosenberg da banda de Ornette Coleman, e de interpretação estilística com Peter Eldridge dos New York Voices. Jacinta começou a cantar profissionalmente em Nova Iorque deslumbrando o público com o seu estilo enérgico. Em Fevereiro de 2001 Jacinta voltou a Portugal, a convite do aclamado trompetista e compositor Laurent Filipe, para uma série de concertos de homenagem a Bessie Smith a grande imperatriz do Blues. Entre os mais respeitados críticos de jazz em Portugal, Jacinta foi descrita como tendo 'uma presença em palco cheia de confiança e à vontade' (António Rubio, Correio da Manhã), e como possuidora de uma 'voz forte e soberana' (António Ferro, O Primeiro de Janeiro). Jacinta possui um forte sentido rítmico e um estilo de improvisação 'digno de uma cantora cheia de maturidade, de um nível que nunca apareceu neste país' (António Rubio, Correio da Manhã). Considerada 'uma das grandes vocalistas do momento' (Rodrigo Affreixo, Blitz), Jacinta reside na área da Baía de São Francisco - Califórnia, onde, como vocalista da banda Lava, já actuou em clubes de jazz de renome mundial como Yoshi’s e Kimball’s East. Jacinta regressa agora a Portugal para uma tourné promovendo o lançamento do disco de Homenagem a Bessie Smith pela EMI. ------------------------------------- SUMMARY OF EXPERIENCE - Training and Professional Experience as jazz vocalist and composer - Professional Experience as a private instrument and ensemble instructor - Professional Experience as a Theory teacher - Professional Experience as a Choir teacher DISCOGRAPHY Tribute to Bessie Smith, on Blue Note Records / EMI Portugal – released in Feb/03 - - gold record in Portugal TEACHING EXPERIENCE Private Teaching Studio (NYC/ Portugal) Voice Instructor, 1995-98 - Vocal Technique and Jazz Style interpretation Piano Instructor, 1992-95 – young children and teenagers, including preparation of advanced students for successful Conservatory entrance auditions High School of Calvao (Portugal) Music Appreciation, 1995-97 - Ear training - Music Initiation, Choir and Orff ensembles Educational Science courses supervisor, 1995-96 Music Conservatory of Viseu (Portugal), 1994-95 Analysis and Composition Techniques I Chamber Music Porto Professional School of Music (Portugal), 1995 Analysis and Composition Techniques II Choir of 50 elements - XVI century and XX Century pieces (Classical and Jazz) Extensive Teaching Experience available on request EDUCATION Manhattan School of Music (New York City) - Master of Music in Jazz Performance, 1999 (Full Scholarship, 1997-99) - Vocal Studies with Peter Eldridge Aveiro University (Portugal) - Bachelor of Music in Classical Composition (10 semester degree), 1995 - Completed field training in Educational Sciences in the Music Conservatory of Viseu, 1994-95 Aveiro Music Conservatory (Portugal) - Piano Major, 1983-90 - Courses in Ear Training; Analysis and Composition Techniques; Music History; Acoustics; Piano; Choir and Chamber Music Schoensttat Sisters of Mary School of Music (Portugal) - Orff and Suzuki methods, 1976-83 - Classes of Ear Training; Choir; Recorder and Percussion Instruments ADDITIONAL TRAINING Private Piano Jazz Lessons (San Francisco) - In between tours, study of jazz piano, accompaniment and improvisation with Matthew Clark, 2002 to present Private Jazz Improvisation Lessons (NYC) - With Chris Rosenberg (guitarist of the Ornette Coleman Band), 1998-2000 - With Darmon Meader (sax player, singer and arranger of The New York Voices), 2000 Private Jazz Composition Lessons (NYC) with Roland Vasquez, 1999 Hot Club of Portugal Jazz School (Lisbon, Portugal), 1995 - Jazz voice with Inês Martins - Jazz Ensembles and Ear Training with Mário Delgado Private Vocal Lessons - Classical Technique with Isabel Maya and António Salgado, 1991-95 - Jazz Style Interpretation with Inês Martins, 1990; and with Peter Eldridge, 1999-00 JAZZ WORKSHOPS and Master Classes Maria Schneider, Manhattan School of Music, NYC, 1999.
