We continue the Brazilian theme this week as Jazz Meet resident Nik Weston of MUKATSUKU fame digs deep into his record collection to pull out a selection of classics from the Latin American country just in time for your weekends. Kicking things off with the Brazilian standard ‘Cravo E Canelo’ by MPB4, we ease into the atmospheric ‘Ala Boca Menino’ by Joao Donato before Gilberto Gil’s version of ‘Roda’ kicks in. Music from Jaime Nair, Marcos Valle, Os Incrives, Elza Soares and Milton Banana Trio (amongst others) all follow before Nik brings things to a rousing close with Claudette Soares’ rousing ‘Os Grillos’. As ever we hope you enjoy this little mix and thank you for listening. TRACKLIST 1. MPB4 – Cravo E Canela 2. Joao Donato – Ala Boca Menino 3. Gilberto Gil – Roda 4. Jaime Nair – Sob o Mar 5. Taiguara – Samba Das Circo 6.
Another brilliant Brazilian inspired mixtape this week, this time from friend of The Jazz Meet, Tom Greig. Fresh from his well received deep jazz mix which dropped just before Christmas, Tom brings us another selection suited for warmer climes with 80 minutes of divine music from the home of Samba. A product of 18 months or so of digging from Brazilian gems, Tom eases us in with a little Cesar Mariano & CIA before taking us on a wild ride through the vaults of MPB and beyond, including a few modern interpretations from contemporary producers along the way. There’s plenty of goodness (and rareness) in among the 30 or so tunes and it’s more than a pleasant listen to round off your working week. We hope you enjoy the mix and if you do, please feel free to drop Tom a little feedback in the comment fields below or over on
The Jazz Meet hops on a plane to Rio this week as resident Nik Weston pulls out the Brazilian goods for a wonderful selection of groovy music to coincide with our Carnival Special at Floripa this Sunday. Right here, you can expect 45 minutes of the finest Brazilian jazz, bossa and samba all taken from the original vinyl, so lie back, pour yourself a Caipirinha and get into the sounds of the combined talents of Jorge Ben, Milton Nascimento, Sergio Mendes, Milton Banana, Os Originais do Samba and a whole host of quality artists from the world of MPB and beyond.
More Brazilian goodness from Marcus Bear (DO YOU LIKE MUSIC?) this week in the form of the second part of this mix session he dropped off to us in December. Bossa, samba, and of course more jazz feature and a cursory glance at the track listing suggests plenty more musical highlights. Tracks come from Raimundo Sodré, Jorge Ben, Edu Lobo, Djavan and Os Tincoas, before two of the country’s finest songbirds, Gal Costa and Elis Regina pair up with two of Brazil’s greatest musicians Caetano Veloso and Jair Rodrigues de Oliveira. Enjoy this little extra dose of laid-back gorgeousness and we’ll be back next week with some more awesome jazz. Thanks for listening.

As winter draws in here in London, we take a little sunny diversion this week and head to Rio with this little Brazilian jazz selection. Marcus Bear (DO YOU LIKE MUSIC?) dropped this into the Jazz Meet inbox earlier in the week, and we take great pleasure in sharing it with you now. Plenty of dusty vinyl to keep you amused (If you’ve got OCD though, understand these cannot be cleaned – so expect some crackles) and plenty of heavy hitters on the track listing. Marcus kicks off with the samba stylings of Os Tincoas before heading deep into bossa and Brazilian jazz territory with the first of three Edu Lobo tracks and some lovely piano work from the Zimbo Trio. Music from a young Sergio Mendes, Miltinho and Elza Soares follow before we up the tempo with an old Jazz Meet favourite in the form of Som Tres’ swinging
