here’s a little something from brazil, part of their show at the 25th tiradentes culture and gastronomy festival last august, that ‘bigfootpezao’ shared recently. the festival site describes the palmeira d’água quintet as “formed by saxophonist marlon wesley, guitarist rodrigo canton and bassist lucas sales, palmeira d’água trio brings to this show the classics of bossa nova and samba jazz. with very good arrangements and brazilian sound, the trio enchants everyone wherever they go.” well, i was enchanted. it was just the thing for a rather nice sunday today. so far, the most pleasant sunday i’ve had all year, and this went very well with it.
i’m finishing the day off by going to hear the andrea jones quartet at the dublin jazz co-op. what with a really bad cold & its decision to just hang around, this’ll be my first show of the year. and i’ve been hoping to see andrea jones since i saw her supporting some graduating dcu students in their final student performances last spring, but events have conspired against me until now. so needless to say i’m very much looking forward to this!
no links to any of the musicians as i could not find any. maybe i’ll try again later.
