Playing tracks by
Ocho, Stan getz & joao gilberto, Elis Regina, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Luiz Bonfá & João Gilberto, Gilberto Gil and more.
This week started with the great latin band Ocho and then it just went all Brazil for 30 mins, it just seemed to make sense. From Bossa Nova, to Brazilian jazz flavors and funk all the way to french bossa, it's all there. After the quick Brazil detour it is back to business as usual. I got sent a great rework by Italy's Suonho who takes an inspired pass at Donny Hathaway's classic The Ghetto, check Suonho out on SoundCloud, lots of great music. There's also a new track from Suen Kuti, Benny Sings, and a great new project from AM & Shawn Lee. I wrap things up this week with another track sent to me via SoundCloud from LA's Hang Glider, look for his very promising EP on iTunes and on vinyl. Enjoy and see you next week.
