Rio (No. 601)

First Aired Thursday, February 24, 2011

In America during the late 50s and early 60s, a new sound made landfall: Brazilian Jazz. This intimate, straight-time "bossa nova" sound quickly hit the airwaves and took hold on records and in live performances by everyone from Ella Fitzgerald to Dave Brubeck. RIO brings us a stylistically pure performance through the haunting voice of Julia Yates and the skilled hands of guitarist Tim Drackert.
