Brazilian Beats


Although bossa nova enjoyed only a spasm of true popularity in America during the early 1960s, it's survived through the years as a boutique genre with a kind of hipster cachet. Emit director David Manson co-leads the band Brisa Do Brasil with his wife Andrea Moraes Manson, a native of Rio de Janeiro. They'll be joined by pianist Regis Moreira (from Sao Paulo) and drummer Robert Crawford in a bossa nova program that includes material by Marcos Valle, Tom Jobim, Edu Lobo, Ivan Lins and other Brazilian composers.
