From the outdoor setting to the live drums, from the rhythm of Brazilian dance to the enthusiasm of the instructor — this workout has energy! The movements range from classic Latin Sambas and Mambos to Brazilian street-dance-specific Axés, Afros and Frevos (well-taught and surprisingly easy to follow). You’ll start with an extended warm-up; it’s designed to get you comfortable shaking your shoulders, rolling your hips and popping your chest. Then Vanessa Isaac demos a pattern, brings it to half-tempo and then finally uses it in a fast-paced combo. Later, she adds on a new routine and begins again. It ends with a short “freestyle” section; it’s like you’re dancing in a Rio street party. Not recommended for carpeted floors.

Enoch Light (1905-1978) has long been recognized as one of the great innovators and musical masters in the use of Latin rhythms. With this adventurous spirit, Light was one of the first to explore the American potential of Latin rhythms. When the cha-cha came along, he had the background and the imagination to know how to give it the typically American presentation that was required to take it beyond the stiff, static treatment it was receiving at the time. Enoch Lights bossa nova treatment builds new fires in these familiar American tunes. At the same time, he gives the Brazilian pieces a volatile power that had never been exploited so imaginatively until this master, with the rhythm of his pulsating big band, brought his exciting, magic touch to them.
Tropical Travels: Brazilian Popular Performance, Transnational Encounters, and the Construction of Race

Tropical Travels: Brazilian Popular Performance, Transnational Encounters, and the Construction of Race by Lisa Shaw
English | January 10th, 2018 | ASIN: B06Y5X3M3F, ISBN: 1477312781, 1477314792 | 246 pages | EPUB | 10.20 MB

Brazilian popular culture, including music, dance, theater, and film, played a key role in transnational performance circuits—inter-American and transatlantic—from the latter nineteenth century to the middle of the twentieth century. Brazilian performers both drew inspiration from and provided models for cultural production in France, Portugal, Argentina, the United States, and elsewhere.

There is something truly majestic in the guitar playing and composing of Luiz Bonfá. From solo dates such as 1959's Solo in Rio (issued stateside by Smithsonian Folkways) to his 1972 masterpiece, Introspection, his sound is as telltale as the two other Brazilian guitar greats, Baden Powell and Djalma de Andrade (aka Bola Sete). Bonfá's elegance in style is what sets him apart from even these great masters. There is something utterly unhurried and gentle about his manner of playing, even during its most intense moments or in the most decorative settings (there were a lot of those during the bossa craze)…

The great British jazz singer Norma Winstone once again casts her net wide for source material for this third ECM album with Italian pianist Glauco Venier and German clarinetist / saxophonist Klaus Gesing. Alongside new pieces by Winstone/Gesing and by Venier, the trio covers tunes by singer-songwriters Nick Drake, Fred Neil and Tom Waits. They take a fresh approach to Madonna’s “Live To Tell”, and to Dave Grusin’s “It Might Be You”, as well as Ralph Towner’s “A Breath Away” (now with lyrics by Norma) and “Bein’ Green”, a children’s song elevated to jazz standard status by Sinatra, Stan Kenton, Ray Charles and many more. “As Winstone moves ever farther from the Great American Songbook,” All About Jazz observed, “it's certain that, with band mates as sympathetic as Gesing and Venier, there's precious little she can't do”.

Brazilian Jazz, Bop | Country: USA | Label: Collectables - COL-CD-7475

Because so few of the recordings by the Mitchell-Ruff Duo have been reissued during the CD era, the reappearance of their recordings on various Collectables releases has been very welcome. Two separate LPs, recorded nearly a decade apart for Epic, make up this two-CD compilation. Brazilian Trip, though recorded in New York City in the summer of 1966, finds the American duo working with a rotating cast of young Brazilian musicians, playing ten sambas written by the visitors, only one of whom, drummer Chico Batera, was a full-time musician.
