Hello again,

July’s ‘Summer Sambas’ theme travels to Philadelphia this week to feature the husband and wife duo of Minas and their latest album, Symphony In Bossa, plus I’ll have ‘first to know’ info to share about their upcoming new album, too!

Longtime fans are very familiar with the music of Orlando Haddad and Patricia King, who created the closing theme for our radio show.

From the very beginning, the Philadelphia-based group Minas has enjoyed a special relationship with The Sounds of Brazil. I selected their ‘Dream Of Brazil’ as the closing theme for my radio show back in 1992.

It was an easy decision: Orlando Haddad and Patricia King were immediately generous with their enthusiasm and support for The Sounds of Brazil and we’ve kept our musical relationship over the years.

Read Minas A Brazilian Jazz Love Story and happy listening!
