This week on The Sounds of Brazil


Ahhh, the promise of Spring!

Our ‘Crossing Borders’ theme shines a spotlight on musicians who make it a point to stretch our personal boundaries. They take us through the familiar touchstones of American jazz and pop to the spectrum of Brazilian Jazz and the Bossa sound and beyond.

This week, it’s the man responsible for giving US recording debuts to Ivan Lins, Deodato, Joao Bosco, and others. Enjoy the best of guitarist Lee Ritenour.

So we’ll let the following short notes have their say… as we get this week’s show underway.
