"Viva o Rio de Janeiro" by Erik Charlston JazzBrasil
From the album
Here's some wonderful jazz to start the new year. The entire album is fantastic, one where the accumulation of each joyous tune creates a wave of happiness through to the last note. Nothing like the warmth of vibes in the heart of Winter, but backed by a large ensemble as talented as this, it may as well be Spring. Very recommended.
