Wordless Wednesday: Brazilian Memories
Beach in Paraty, Brazil - a Portuguese Colonial Town Popular for Surfing
We have been avid fans of jazz for quite some time, and Brazilian jazz became a favorite of ours when our younger daughter spent 18 months in Sao Paulo in the early part of this millenium as part of her college degree. We have enjoyed it ever since, including the annual Brazilian Jazz Festa concerts here in San Diego every year since 2008, as well as occasional Brazilian bands at the TGIF Concerts during the summer in Carlsbad!
For us, there is something magical, and relaxing, about the melodies and the rhythms (e.g, samba, bossa nova) unique to Brazil, with such notable artists as Antonio Carlos Jobim, Astrid Gilberto, Joao Gilberto, Sergio Mendes, Bebel Gilberto, Flora Purim, Eliane Elias, Chico Pineiro, Milton Nascimento, and the list goes on and on. When I hear Brazilian jazz I think immediately of beach life!! It was very popular music in St. Martin when we used to visit when we lived in Boston, and we often played it at our beach house on Cape Cod.
Who doesn't know "Garota de Ipanema" (The Girl from Ipanema)?!
We've had the good fortune to hear several well-known Brazlian musicians and singers live at concerts over the years in Boston, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, as well as to enjoy live music while spending 8 days in Sao Paulo - truly an amazing city in many ways.
I was enjoying a grilled dinner tonight (home alone all week) and had a Brazilian Pandora station playing on the Bose for hours, and the memories of many years of enjoying Brazilian music just flowed. What can I say!?
Enjoy this video of a truly talented Brazilian pianist, composer, and singer...Eliane Elias! We saw her live in San Francisco, CA at Yoshi's with our table right by the stage - amazing!
