Brazil is most definitely the land of Samba and Sun, but narrowing the focus one of Rio de Janeiro's top guitarists adds more layers to the musical mix. And if a jazzy style stirs your soul, you’ll feel right at home with this week’s show as we wrap up our month-long theme ‘Brazilian Jazzmasters’. We’ll start off with a few musical notes of our own:

My Producer's Notes

Catch the beginning of The Sounds of Brazil at 6am, 9am, noon, 3pm, 6pm, 9pm and midnight Central Time daily.

When drawing up a short list of our favorite Brazilian jazz musicians, guitarist Ricardo Silveira is always one of our first entries. He’s earned a reputation as one of Rio's most admired and respected international musicians. Born in Rio, Ricardo grew up listening to Bossa Nova, Samba and the insistent rhythms of Carnival. He’s a graduate of the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, where he studied alongside jazz greats Pat Metheny and Bill Frisell.

Silveira has played guitar on hundreds of recordings over his 25- year career and has recorded with such notables as Milton Nascimento, Vanessa Williams, Gilberto Gil, Diana Ross, Moacir Santos, Gal Costa, Ivan Lins, João Bosco, Greg Karukas, Luis Avellar, Chico Buarque and Don Grusin, just to name a handful of the talented artists who appreciate Ricardo's playing.

These days, Silveira’s interests have branched out to include several acoustic trio and duet recordings as well as taking on the role of producer for the likes of the late Emilio Santiago and newcomer vocalist Liz Rosa. And always with his signature style that has come to define Brazilian jazz over the years.    

This week’s playlist includes songs from the jazzy side of the Brazilian music spectrum - all in keeping with our ‘Brazilian Jazzmasters’ theme this month.

Flora Purim serves up some classic Bossa Jazz with Joe Henderson’s sax. Cesar Camargo Mariano reinvents Stevie Wonder’s ‘Send One Your Love’ while Italy’s Caibedo Island dips into the next gen stream for their ‘Sensual Bossa’.  Plus Vanessa Williams, Marisa Monte from her latest album and Marcela Mangabeira’s drift away anthem ‘Voo Sobre O Horizonte’ (Fly Above The Horizon).

A cool breeze in Summer, and a warm wind when the weather turns cold – you’re just a click of the LISTEN LIVE button away from The Sounds of Brazil! Always fresh and always changing to help make the time you spend with us go along smoothly.

I hope you’ll enjoy the show.
