2015-04-24 – A Musical History of Sergio Mendes

sergio mendes Sergio Mendes started playing in Brazilian nightclubs in the late 1950s, just as bossa nova was being born of its famous parents, jazz and samba. So Sergio and bossa grew up together, and they’re still going — Mendes is on tour now, playing at Seattle’s Jazz Alley 23-26 April. This show will be a celebration of his music, with lots of Sergio’s covers and collaborations mixed in. Plus new releases and other global fun.

brazil luiz gonzaga forro musicianThe Brazil women’s soccer team may be out of the Olympics, but that won’t put a damper on this Sunday’s Brasilfest at the Seattle Center… and it didn’t rain on this radio show either. We heard all manner of Brazilian music, from forro to funk, for some two-thirds of the show. Plus new releases and more in hour 2.

It’s gonna be a sizzling weekend (’bout time!) here in Cascadia. Stay cool … and as always, live locally and groove globally until next Friday’s show.
