This weekend on The Sunday Brazilian Brunch: a musical mystery. I'm not exactly sure when brothers Mike and Pat Metheny developed their relationships with Brazilian music. Horn player Mike is a few years older, and has made those Bossa and jazz samba rhythms an ongoing part of his repertoire over the years.
But it was Pat who made his way south just as Brazil's jazz generation came of age. He lived the apartment life in Rio de Janeiro between to ...

This weekend on The Sunday Brazilian Brunch, it's a look at some of our favorite musicians from the Land of Lincoln. As the crossroads of the mid-west, it turns out that Chicago has a long history of talented Brazilians to explore.
