An Array of New Brazilian Sounds (DownBeat “Beyond” column, Oct 2019)

Delia Fischer, Rio-based singer-songwriter/pianist

Six albums of Brazilian jazz and música popular brasileira illustrate more than the country’s musical diversity: They demonstrate how Brazil’s best songwriters and musicians—marinated in older forms like samba, choro, and bossa nova—are finding new ways to use that heritage to create fresh pop, rock and jazz.  Read about Delia Fischer, Marcos Valle, Banda Black Rio, Antonio Adolfo, and two others here.
