Jazz Night Out!

Last night, I caught the first set of Brazilian jazz at The Zinc Bar where my friend, Monika Olivera, fills in for the usual bossa nova singer.  She was backed by a marvelous four-piece combo, including a fellow who played sax and flute:  all Brazilian standards and her own beautiful compositions.  Lots of Jobim, of course, and when she wasn’t singing sad, it was high-energy non-stop!  The picture above says it all.

If you are in NYC, check out her page to see when you can catch a show with her, and you won’t regret it!  Having her sing at my house for a milestone birthday party was a high point for me:  the only way to salve the pain of realizing how old I’m getting by thinking back to it is to have her do it again
