The Brazilian theme of this week’s exclusive jazz mix has prompted us to explore the genre a little within this week’s edition of JAZZ LOCKDOWN. Many jazz artists are greatly influenced by Brazilian and Latin American music. With that in mind we decided to link you to an article from Connect Brazil about 12 Influential Brazilian Jazz Albums so you can both explore the genre and find links to your favorite jazz. Featured in this list is Sergio Mendes who is included in this week’s mix along with being a major influence on Carioca Soul whose video we are delighted to share.
