Ben Sher’s “Samba for Tarsila” New CD



An acclaimed jazz guitarist who hails from Pittsburgh, Ben Sher has toured the world as an artist and now has a new CD.

“Samba for Tarsila” is eclectic and electric, entertaining, and enlivening. And the musicians are absolutely world-class: They are a cohesive group that navigate the obstacle course of syncopation with dexterity and grace:

Gary Fisher is a seasoned New York jazz pianist, performing around New York with Vincent Herring, Monte Croft, Eric Alexander, Joe Farnsworth, and others. Greg Jones is another veteran New York musician, with a list of touring and recording credits with Astrud Gilberto, Jon Lucien, Carly Simon, Max Roach, and Michael Urbaniak. Special guest Vanderlei Pereira s one of the most revered Brazilian drummers in New York. His list of recording credits reads like a who’s-who of Brazilian music: Airto Moreira, Lenny Andrade, Toots Thielman, Dom Salvador, and Rosa Passos.
