He'll perform bossa nova standards and his own works with a trio that includes bassist Mark Neuenschwander and drummer Luiz Santos. Opening the program will be O Som Do Jazz, a seven-piece ensemble featuring vocalist Andrea Moraes Manson. The concert is at 8 p.m. Saturday at the St. Petersburg College Music Center, 6605 Fifth Ave. N, St. Petersburg. There will be a pre-concert talk with Mauro at 6:30 p.m. $12, $15. (727) 341-4363;
