Hamptons Jazz Fest presents groundbreaking duo, vocalist Mafalda Minnozzi and guitarist Paul Ricci and their quintet. Known for their musical empathy, the ensemble is sure to inspire The Church an emotionally unique experience. Minnozzi’s vocal range and versatile timbral pallet, coupled with her charismatic stage presence blurs the dividing line between singer and improviser. Ricci’s unique fingerpicking style jazz, influenced by and infused with Bossa and blues, has amazed fellow guitarists and Jazz critics alike.  

Having performed with legends like Harry Belafonte and Bobby Sanabria, among others, Minnozzi and Ricci are a well-studied and inspirational force that leave audiences around the globe moved, excited, and amazed. We hope you will join us at The Church what will be an unforgettable evening.
