Diego Figueiredo & O Som Do Jazz! 

We had the wonderful experience of performing with guitarist Diego Figueiredo  at the Palladium Theater Side door on September 27th! 

Diego is one of the finest Brazilian jazz guitarists in the world.  George Benson says “Diego Figueiredo is one of the greatest guitarists I’ve seen in my whole life. The world needs to listen to his music" and that is no exaggeration!  Our show was sold out.

We hope to perform in the future and look forward to his next visit to Florida!


We are watching the World Cup and hoping that Brasil continues to win!  It's nerve=wracking!!!

Rio Bossa performs at the St. Petersburg Museum of Fine Art on July 18. Rio Bossa is our smaller group with Andrea, Regis and David.  If you are in town, check it out!  

television sync! 

We just had two of our original songs included in the 7th episode of the HBO series, "Looking."  It aired on March 2.

We look forward to other television opportunities!

CD wrapping up! 

Our second CD is in the final stages of mixing and we are delighted!  9 of the 13 selections are originals and featured bossa nova, MPB and northeastern-style music.  Four of the selections have already been listed in our licensing affiliate in L.A.

Two of our songs from "Infinita Bossa" are going to be included in a bossa nova compilation CD released by High Note Records, based in Taiwan!


 We are finally finishing up the recording!  It has 13 songs and 9 are originals.  It should be available by early December.

Three songs are being considered for TV usage from our associates in L.A.  We'll keep our fingers crossed!

Thanks to all! 

 Thanks for all of our fans who came to the Palladium Side Door on July 8  to hear O Som Do Jazz!  We sold out the venue and the director wants us back in the fall.

Thanks to all! 

Thanks to all of our fans who attended the concerts at the Catherine Hickman Theatre and the Palladium Theatre Side Door and sold out both venues!  We had a great time and look forward to seeing you at our next concert.
