‘perks’ shared this on dime back in august 2015.  i pulled this show back up after i read or heard something about marquis hill &/or blacktet recently.  no idea where.  but this turned out to be a real jem, and perks’ recording does it justice.

travelling again, but in spain now, with that same trusty (i hope) solid-state drive that i took to brazil.  truly, a lifesaver.  this is one of the dime shows that i loaded on there back in the day (early 2015, if you’re asking).  i haven’t listened to any melody gardot for ages and ages, so this sort of seredipity is particularly nice.

just back from a great trip to são paulo.  a lot of work, but had a great time.  saw a very little bit of the city, like having a sip of someone’s drink, really.  here’s a little something that’s helping fight my jetlag (which is pretty fierce… due to flight cancellations, it took over 34 hours, door-to-door, to get home).

stuck here in dulles international for a few hours… thought i’d give some of the shows from brazil a listen, and this was first.  very nice.  a lot of talk which would be a real bummer if portuguese wasn’t such a nice sounding language.   this was shared on dime in june 2007 by ‘luladsilva’.  not sure if i’d call it jazz, but its’s very nice and is helping me while away the time.

i’m off to sao paulo for a short visit.  fortunately, i found a usb solid state drive loaded with a wide variety of music, from some trip or other…  beefed it up with a half-dozen shows in brazil (why not?).  so we might have a bit of a break here.  then again, i might get a bit of a break there.  (“then again”… that’s a nice little idiomatic phrase, isn’t it?)
