Sometmes I just HAVE to get into some Latin Jazz. Right now, Ricardo Bacelar is filling the void. He recently released Ao Vivo no Rio (Live in Rio) and the music showcases the music originally written by Brazilian icons Milton Nascimento, Tom Jobim, Gilberto Gil and Flora Purim along with American greats Benny Golson, Horace Silver, Pat Metheny and Chick Corea.
Bacelar and his band recorded live performances of the songs at the famed Blue Note in Rio. They will be compiled and released on August 21st. Lucky for us, we can check out some of the live performances right here.
Here is one of our all time favorites, Killer Joe:
One of the groovier songs from the concert, Toda Menina Baiana:
We are also digging Nanã:
We will just leave Blue Miles right here.
That is what I am saying!! We will continue to keep you up to date on the latest happenings from Ricardo Bacelar.
