Always a friend of Brazilian music, going back to his time spent in Brazil in the early '80s, Hendrik Meurkens returns once again to the idiom in a live performance at Cecil's Jazz Club in West Orange, New Jersey. There is only one obvious standard Brazilian tune here -- Jobim's "Triste" -- and one near-standard, João Donato's "A Ra" (better-known in North America as "The Frog"), plus a convincing medium-tempo bossa nova translation of a non-Brazilian standard, "I Can't Get Started." Meurkens contributes two fleet, attractive choros of his own, "Mimosa" and "Menina Na Janela" -- both of which have been performed on earlier Meurkens recordings -- as well as an aural picture of "Prague in March" and the contemplative "Bolero para Paquito," in which Meurkens' harmonica comes closest in sound and manner to his most-commonly cited reference point, Toots Thielemans. Whether on harmonica or vibraphone, Meurkens flies as comfortably as ever over the various Brazilian jazz grooves from drummer Adriano Santos, bassist Gustavo Amarante and pianist Helio Alves, with Jed Levy brought in on tenor sax and flute to supplement Meurkens' usual quartet. Nice!

David Byrne, a burgeoning mind

He was the leader of the Talking Heads, he recorded punk funk and South-American music, republished gems of world music, spent countless hours cycling through large cities throughout the world, and dabbled in dozens of other activities. What is truly going on in David Byrne’s head?

Bossa nova, the Eternal Wave

Since its creation in the late 1950s, Bossa-nova has become an indispensable part of Brazilian music. The style’s strong evocative power won over artists from all around the world and earned recognition for many first-rate musicians whose works are now seen as classics.

Caetano Veloso, forever young

This unclassifiable artist isn’t just a pillar of Brazilian music. Each new album by Caetano Veloso highlights the eclecticism and constant openness of a genius that has never rested on his laurels…
