Welcome to The Sounds of Brazil!

Tuesday brings a much-anticipated change of seasons, and we know that the Spring of 2023 will once again be better than last year. Our friendships, our faith, and yes, our music bring us closer to our lives and our lifestyles. Rebirth and renewal… that’s Spring!

But Spring can be the most fickle of seasons, especially here in Chicago. Remember last year? We were braving wind chills that drove the cold into single digits. This year? It was 23 above (not counting the wind chill) just a day or two ago. “In like a lion, out like a lamb?”  We can only hope…

But all too often, the calendar says one thing and Mother Nature laughs…

So, if you are one of those who has as many inches of snow on your driveway as we are days until Spring, then this week’s program should help you get through.

For sun lovers (and many Brazilian music fans), spring is the season we look forward to most, and if you’re in the mood for some spring cleaning – or just want to revitalize – here are a few tuneful ways to add a little more of Brazil into your life this week.

‘Spring Into Brazil’ with me for two hours of season-changing favorites! From Djavan to Deodato, from budding Nu Bossas to spritely jazz Sambas!

Thank you – as always – for listening.
