Rebecca Kleinmann Rebecca Kleinmann

Rebecca Kleinmann is an acclaimed flutist, singer, and composer with a twenty year professional career marked by diversity and improvisation. In the words of Latin Grammy Nominated pianist and composer, Jovino Santos Neto, “Rebecca plays flute with the passion of a flamenco dancer.” An explorer at heart, she rockets and flows between genres, one day leading, The Rebecca Kleinmann Jazz Quartet, with pianist Alex Conde, bassist Gary Brown, and drummer Marlon Aldana, the next day performing with a Brazilian Choro ensemble, and then later that night jamming in flamenco juergas. Rebecca’s international career has taken her to perform on stages in Argentina, Brazil, and Europe including the Melbourne’s International Women in Jazz Festival, as well as being featured at the SF Jazz Center, the San Jose Jazz Festival, Yoshi’s San Francisco, and the Oakland Paramount Theatre closer to home. She has performed and recorded with great musicians including Carlos Oliveira, Lionel Loueke, SK Kakraba, Rob Curto, Almir Cortes, and Kina Mendez and worked with many dancers including Clara Rodriquez, Melissa Cruz, and Rosangela Silvestre. She also freelances, records on soundtracks and plays with Dona Francisca Forró Band and La Dee Da Indie Band. In the words of master Jazz Pianist Benny Green, Kleinmann is masterful and selfless in her ability and inclination of melding her sound with her environment.”
