Koret Discover Jazz Course: Brazilian Roots

John Santos, Instructor

Brazil is a world of music unto itself. The natural affinity of Brazilian music with jazz has yielded beautiful results and historic collaborations. Historically, the choro and samba genres have much in common with jazz in terms of urban, Afro-European influence, and Brazilian regional forms have produced some of the most exquisite music of the last half century, always pushing and challenging the parameters of what might be defined as jazz. Some of the artists we will listen to and discuss include João Gilberto, Elis Regina, Hermeto Pascoal, Airto & Flora Purim, Djavan, Baden Powell, Maria Bethania, Sergio Mendes, João Bosco, Fundo de Quintal, Roberta Sa, Jovino Santos Neto, Ricardo Peixoto and Claudia Villela.
