JOAO BOSCO (Brazil) at BIRDLAND, May 2-6JOAO BOSCO and his very talented band of Gutto Wirtti on Bass, Kiko Freitas on Drums,  and Ricardo Silveira on Guitar, all coming up from Rio,  will light up the stage with their special brand of music rooted and in classic Samba and Bossa Nova traditions, yet steeped in Rock ‘n’ Roll, Jazz and other ethnic flavors such as Arab culture, and Afro American music.
 
He grew up in a musical family, his mother a concert pianist and his brother a composer.  Bosco concentrated on American Jazz, particularly Miles Davis, and the Bossa Nova sounds of Joao Gilberto and Antonio Carlos Jobim.  He met Vinicius de Morais who contributed lyrics to his music and later teamed up with
Aldir Blanc who wrote lyrics for Bosco for more than a decade.  He went on to make many important recordings and to have his songs recorded by greats such as Elis Regina.  As Composer, his melodic and harmonic constructions are among
the most auspicious in Brasilian music. 
 
Joao Bosco is revered for writing the protest song “O Bebaido e a Equilibrista, which became the theme song for Amnesty International.  His American breakthrough came when he was a guest on a recording  with Jazz guitarist Lee Ritenour
 
The New York Times said of BOSCO “…On acoustic guitar he was masterly picking out the subtle syncopation of “Samba”  rhythms..a musician complete within himself …  a ferocious performer with a kind of trance-state of precision and energy !
 
The basic ingredient of his music is Samba, Brasil’s cultural own. While singing in Portuguese, he makes you feel that the sound of his words are as important as their meaning.”   
 
40 Years later with world tours and many important recordings, Birdland is proud to present this legendary musician and his brilliant artistry.
