Hello again!

Been to Brazil lately? Wish you were there right now? I’ve opened up the playlist for the best of ‘Brazilian Jazzmasters’, and a special focus on the heart and soul of it all: Rio de Janeiro!

Inside this two-hour special, I have included a musical tribute to the legendary group Azymuth. And the homepage at tells the story behind Brazil’s all-time #1 Top 40 hit.

Brazilian music and American jazz have always enjoyed an easy friendship and that means a lot of great music to enjoy. More below.
