Whenever I need to reconnect with the infinite inspiration of music, I dial up something from Brazil. Here's a short tour of some incredible records that deserve recognition as classics of world culturea few craftily updated classics by Antonio Carlos Jobim, a few stellar gems from the songbook of Milton Nascimento, some crackling Baden Powell, an absolutely gorgeous Edu Lobo tune, etc. Enjoy!

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
