The Mondavi Center’s 2006-07 calendar is better than ever. With acts like the Moscow State Symphony Orchestra, the Chieftains, Taj Mahal, and Ravi Coltrane, the talent quotient this year is overwhelming. Brazilian jazz pianist and chanteuse Luciana Souza continues the venue’s tradition of world-class musicianship with a short run in the Mondavi’s Studio Theatre at UC Davis. Check out her aptly titled Brazilian Duos and Duos II on Sunnyside Records, if you haven’t already. They feature guitarist Romero Lubambo, who will join her for these special shows. Their interpretations of jazz, both in Portuguese and English, will mesmerize. Souza’s residency takes place November 14 through 18. Shows start promptly at 8 p.m. and all ages are welcome. Tickets are $36 for general admission and $18 for students and children. For more information, visit www.mondaviarts.org.
