    Okay, I know it's not late at night in a smoky room. But here is a great taste of Brazilian jazz from Eliane Elias whom I saw live - in the front row - she playing without shoes. Cute. And lovely.

    If you prefer your sensual music when it's dark - come back later.

    2/7/13 This tune has no missing pieces. It's all there: top musicians, fantastic arrangement, extraordinary solos (especially the drummer) and obvious enthusiasm shown by all led by the very talented Eliane Elias.

    2/7/13 One of my favorite Stevie Wonder songs done by Elias showing that, when done right, a pop song can be properly complimented by a jazz arrangement.

    Brazilian music has enriched the music scene everywhere. Antonio Carlos-Jobim is well-known due to Brazil 66 and others, creating appreciation for Bossa Nova and other ethnic melodies.

    Here is a medley of artists that pay tribute to this glorious and sensual sound.

    I've gotten a number of PMs asking for more music for late-night reveries and for appropriate drink suggestions. Try Black Russians on the rocks. Or leave out the Kahlua for medicinal purposes. As for suitable artists try...

    I may have to hire some people. This is getting out of hand. Be back soon with more ideas. Remember, this is potent stuff. View only late at night and in the dark.

    Ray Charles did this some years ago in a very soulful way. Kurt Elling does it justice.

    I have seen his music director, Lawrence Hobgood, the pianist, in other performances and have read reviews of his music. The consensus is he is incomparable. That is not an exaggeration.

    Very smooth.
    White Russians work as well.

    Don't hire anyone, nobody does it as well as you.
    Unless of course you need help with your links, then I'm your girl.

    Wow. Where did that voice come from??!!! I really like his sound. I started listening to more of his songs, found this one I thought was good. I hope you don't mind my jumping in with a link.

    Holy Crap! It's true after all. Clapton is god! Well, seeing as this is Sunday I have no choice but to post some 'hymns'. I could post a lot but I'll try to control myself.

    One very late night I was driving and heard Morgana King singing Corcovado. I pulled over to listen so that I wouldn't be distracted. It was that memorable. I had never heard it sung that way.

    I have only found one version of her arrangement with Torrie Zito. It does not come near the original, which is around seven minutes and much richer, but I have posted it anyway.

    Corcovado.

    I am posting two others to give examples of her incredible range (5 octaves) and brilliance. Her
    talent is greater than most singers and her voice is haunting.

    A Taste Of Honey. This one is very special. Listen in the dark. And then listen again.
