The piano has always been the composer’s friend and that’s especially true for Brazilian music, where the guitar reigns supreme. But why? It’s so unwieldy and difficult to play. Maybe it’s because the piano is one of the very few instruments that invites the musician to sit down and relax with it. And in doing so, the piano invites invention.

Where does one start with Deodato? That’s a difficult question, considering that the talented Brazilian is now well into his fifth decade as a boundless musical force. It wasn’t any easier a question 30 years ago, when Billboard magazine, in covering his first US concert tour, referred to Deodato as a newcomer: “young and exuberant, with the intellectual curiosity and lack of pretense seemingly common with many Latin American musicians.”
Problem was, by the time his first single (“Also Sprach Zarathustra: Theme From 2001, A ...

When it comes to America and Brazil this weekend, the differences couldn’t be greater. While Rio de Janeiro and Chicago will see nearly identical high temps today, for us it’s the official start of summer and the longest weekend of the year. Down south? Their shortest weekend and the beginning of winter. How do Brazilians deal with it? Three words: Long. Holiday. Weekend (Read more about Brazilians and their crazy vacation days here). ...

Brazil has taken vacation time to new level for World Cup...
Brazilian authorities have augmented the country's long list of public holidays during the World Cup to let the football-loving country enjoy the tournament and also cut down on traffic problems.
Brazil is known for its generous number of public holidays. There are nine national holidays every year, not an exceptionally large number. But it is supplemented by seven "optional" holidays granted at employers' discretion.
Some of those apply to certain professions, such as Teachers' Day, Commerce Day and Civil Servan ...

It almost seemed that clarinetist, saxophonist and singer Moacir Santos was older that the hills of the Brazilian northeast that he came from, but you'd never know it from the wealth of great tunes found on this collection.
If the term 'Choro' is Brazil's answer to our 'jazz', then surely Moacir Santos must be thought of as its Ellington. These well-crafted and elegantly poised songs are easy on the ears and they rightly ...

Who created rock and roll? What musician gave birth to Jazz.? Who was first to sing the blues? When it come to Bossa Nova, pulling that musical thread is much easier. It can be traced to one man, one voice, one guitar and this Sunday on The Brazilian Brunch, we'll celebrate Joao Gilberto's 83rd birthday.
Back when I was writing the Brazilian music column for Jazziz magazine, I once observed that Bossa Nova legend Joao Gilberto “has a voice ...
