Canção Carioca: Song from Rio

Steve Griggs is one of a number of jazz masters who is contributing to a really interesting musical re-appraisal of Villa-Lobos in the 21st Century.  The Steve Griggs Ensemble's Brazilian Serenade was a very successful part of the Ano Villa-Lobos celebrations of last November, and the new project is timed to celebrate Villa's birthday in March.

Besides Villa's Suite floral, Ciclo Brasileiro, Brinquedo da Roda, and Bachianas Brasileiras, Canção Carioca includes music by Ernesto Nazareth, Darius Milhaud, Horace Silver, and Tom Jobim.  Go to the Steve Griggs website for more on this exciting project.
