Brazilian music is more popular today than it has ever been before, and it's not hard to understand why a bossa nova entices with its rhythms, a ballad seduces with its passion, a choro invites with its melody. Chesky Records has put together a magnificent collection that will delight both the serious collector and highlight the essential elements of this lively music for the first-time listener. Best of Brazil boasts performances of high emotion and exquisite craft. It takes you on a musical vacation that lets you feel as if you've visited the sandy beaches of Rio without ever having left your room.
