Any trip to Rio has to include a lunch with Marcos Ariel. Truth be told, some of my most memorable meals in the Zona Sul include the easy-going keyboardist. Last time, he shared the thought of a permanent move here, but those plans are on hold, for now. So be sure to reacquaint yourself with one of Brazil’s most life-loving and gregarious musical personalities this week.

It’s always fun with Marcos and his music, especially when he has a new album to enjoy. You’ll hear a song from his ‘Americas’ album in our Spotlight segment at the end of our first hour. Can’t wait? Order it here!

In Rio, Marcos Ariel is known as a ‘Carioca da Gema’ (no, not that famous bar in Lapa; that’s a different story…). He’s a true carioca, not just by birth but most importantly because of his spirit and zest for life. And as so many of his longtime fans know, these qualities carry over into his music.

Always quick with a smile and a story or two, Marcos Ariel’s warm smile and his easy-going nature has picked up a new fan base – and a new hobby. It turns out that he’s a quite a gourmet when it comes to the art of pizza. In fact, his hand-tossed pizza parties have become a popular invite in Zona Sul.

Just think: great pizza and Brazilian jazz. What could be better?

Happy Listening,

Scott Adams, Program Host
