Producer’s Notes


April is Brazil’s Discovery Month. It’s also Jazz Appreciation Month.

Brazil was discovered on April 22, 1500, by Portuguese explorers, who made landfall just south of Salvador, Bahia.

This week, we’ll navigate the tricky waters of Brazilian jazz to find the best compilation albums. And follow us on Twitter and Facebook for tips on getting the most out of our website, too. Here are a few to get you started:

Back2Back! Our top-of-the-hour two-in-a-row features new music – every Wednesday, plus a surprising twofer every Monday and Friday, too! Listen Live at 11 am 2 pm and 5 pm Central on the PLAY button at the bottom of your screen!
