Michel Nirenberg, Brazilian saxophonist returns to the DC area for a short tour. Well known to many afficianado's of Brazilian music in the area, Michel, completed graduate studies at James Madison University a few years ago and was a regular on the local gigging scene before returning to Rio. Great to chat with him and play tracks from his album "Portrait/Retrato"
Keeping up with the world music theme, some great vocals from Spain's Buika, and Canada's Hannah Burgé, plus an opening track from DC's own Laura Baron - featuring, incidentally, Alejandro Lucin (drums) who performed on Michel Nirenberg's album - small world! Plus tracks from the new album by the Blind Boys of Alabama and a great closer from Michael Franti & Spearhead.
