Bossa Nova and Brazilian-Inspired Jazz
“There are two kinds of music. Good music, and the other kind.”- Duke Ellington
Loyola Law School Jazz Salons present good music! And the good music will flow next Tuesday, November 8 during the final Jazz Salon of the fall 2022 semester
This Jazz Salon will feature the music of Brazil. During the 1960s the Bossa Nova, a fusion of Brazilian samba with jazz, hit the American music scene like a tidal wave. Bossa Nova’s silky rhythms, soothing chords, and gentle sounds took the public by storm, generating big hits and multiple Grammy awards.
This Jazz Salon will feature an overview of the Bossa Nova and Brazilian-inspired jazz. It will survey music by master Brazilian composers Antonio Carlos Jobim and João Gilberto, songs sung by Astrud and Bebel Gilberto, and music played by Brazilian pianist Eliane Elias. Cuts by American jazz artists Vince Guaraldi, Diana Krall and Sarah Vaughan, all inspired by the music of Brazil, will be part of the mix.
