Bossa Thursday – an evening dedicated to Brazilian bossa jazz
Presented by Claudio S. (IG bossasundays)
This evening is dedicated to Brazilian bossa jazz (or samba jazz), a genre that evolved in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo in the early sixties of the twentieth century in the aftermath of bossa nova. The musical style is characterized by a unique fusion of Brazilian music, such as bossa nova and samba, with improvisation, swing, and syncopation of American jazz.
The origins of bossa nova can be traced back to a group of young musicians in Rio de Janeiro who were inspired by American jazz and traditional Brazilian music. While João Gilberto and Antônio Carlos Jobim shaped and popularized the genre worldwide since 1958, another group of young jazz musicians in Rio de Janeiro and Saõ Paulo found a unique musical expression of their own. They hit Brazilian dance floors and gained international fame in the 60s. Tonight’s playlist plays tribute to those young jazz musicians, artists like Sérgio Mendes, J.T. Meirelles, Edison Machado, Dom Um Romão, Zimbo Trio, Tamba Trio, Milton Banana Trio.
