Ed Motta: Minha Vida Toda Com Você


Sign in to view read count
If you thought bossa nova and samba was all there is to know about Brazilian music, let me introduce you to Ed Motta. A true renaissance man, Motta has big ears and melds into his own unique style everything from spiritual jazz to Steely Dan. He also is a master of many instruments, as you can hear on one of his best offerings as a leader, the 2009 Trama label release, Piquenique.
