Brazilian Singing Star Paula Morelenbaum Headlines BossaBrazil Festival at Birdland April 24-28

Check this out — the internationally acclaimed Brazilian music artist Paula Morelenbaum will headline a Brazilian music festival at Birdland in NYC, April 24-28.   And I get to meet her… because she’s the featured vocalist on “Only Trust Your Heart,” the first single release by my talented client, Atlanta bossa nova composer/arranger Bill Broadfoot and his band Rustic Materials.   Paula and her husband, cellist Jaques Morelenbaum, toured and recorded with Antonio Carlos Jobim for a decade before the duo became major ambassadors of Brazilian music to the world.  Jaques also appears on “Only Trust Your Heart.” See more info about the Birdland gig below…
