Sunday's Brazilian Brunch: Marcos Valle

by Brazil Club - Let The Music Take You There on 09/13/2013 - 11:22 am


 
 
No doubt about it: Marcos Valle is probably the coolest Brazilian septuagenarian on the planet.  From those halcyon days of writing and recording Bossa Nova anthems like 'Samba de Verão' (Summer Samba/So Nice) to a more recent string of sleek, urban Brazilian grooves, Valle remains a unique force in Brazilian song.
 
We'll celebrate a milestone birthday for this Brazilian jazz master when we get together for the Sunday Brazilian Brunch.
 
You're invited to join me on the webstream beginning Sunday morning at: 8 am, 11 am, 2 pm, 5 pm or 8 pm and the Brazilian Brunch nightcap at 11 pm (Chicago time).  I hope you'll plan to tune in!
