Brazilian siren Ana Caram shares this "retro"-spective musical performance in celebration of the brilliant marriage between Brazilian song and America's "cool jazz." The result? A very cool glimpse into the bossa nova scene of a 1960s jazz club, and with Chesky's state-of-the-art recording technology, you have the best seat in the house.
