Hello again, and welcome!

Our Winter Storystream The Warmth of Brazil wouldn’t be complete without a look at the Brazilian guitar. So, let’s spend a few hours together exploring the styles and sounds of the instrument that truly personifies the music of Brazil.

Our show spotlights great guitarists from all over the musical map: Ricardo Silveira, Torcuato Mariano, Gabriel Martins, Toninho Horta, Rosa Passos, and Silva. Plus, I’ll bring you a birthday salute for Lee Ritenour, too.

The Brazilian guitar is synonymous with João Gilberto, who set the bar so high that his style remains a standard of excellence. It’s one by which all others – on both sides of the equator – are compared. We’ll hear one of his best.

A cool breeze in Summer, and a warm wind when the weather turns cold – that’s The Sounds of Brazil!

But first, let’s catch up with a few timely tips for the week ahead!
