The Jazz Live at Marine View series continues to present high-quality jazz from around the country. Coming up this weekend is three-time Grammy nominated pianist Jovino Santos Neto, fronting his quintet for a sound that straddles Latin, jazz and contemporary improvisation.

Born in Brazil and now based in Seattle, Santos Neto composes music rooted in Brazilian styles like samba, choro and xote while moving easily around adventurous new harmonic language. He’s recorded multiple CDs with his quintet, including several nominated for Latin Grammy awards.

5 p.m. May 18. Free, all ages. Marine View Presbyterian, 8469 Eastside Dr. NE, Tacoma. 253-927-0557, marineviewpc.org
