This week’s show was a lot of fun to put together, but was also marked by multiple technical problems. To make a short story boring, I ended up doing most of the show from my iPod. Nonetheless, it was fun to work on this week’s themed setlist: Brazilian women singers. I got quite a few classic albums this week from Gal Costa and Joyce, and it is always great to play old favorites.
For me, the standout tracks this week were Joyce’s “Clareana,” Gal Costa’s “Que Pena” and George Duke’s “A Brazilian Love Affair.” Looking forward to his show at the Lucerna Music Bar on 19 May. Here’s Joyce singing “Clareana” live:
