If you haven’t made any plans for January 19th (a Saturday), and
would like to be transported to Brazil for the evening, come by Jazz
Central and hear this great group doing classic bossa nova music.
Most of it will be in English, and you’ll recognize more of these
tunes than you think — The Girl From Ipanema is only the beginning!
