I just discovered this crazy awesome new radio App called Rio Radio, & I am completely obsessed with it!  I am so in love with this App that I put it on both my iPhone & my iPad.  This App streams popular Brazilian music (some straight from local Sao Paulo radio stations, complete with commercials), & also streams popular Bossa Nova, Jazz & Samba music.

Lately, I’ve just been on this extreme Brazilian everything spree.  I have been practically binging on all things Brazil. For example, I recently bought the Blu-Ray DVD of one of my all-time favorite movies: RIO, & I have been playing this movie on repeat everyday.  I’ve also been listening to Brazilian Pop music non-stop (even when I’m working out at the gym) even though I don’t understand a lick of Portuguese!  Well, I do somewhat understand the universal Spanish words, but I don’t understand any of the traditional Portuguese words.  Although, I do find the language very interesting (& sounds very close to French)!

I’ve also been dreaming a lot lately of visiting Rio de Janeiro.  I’ve been playing around with the idea of visiting Rio for my honeymoon vacation…but the only thing that’s holding me back from taking the plunge to go there is the safety concern.  I’ve been reading up on a lot of travel guides & tourism board websites, & all the resources say that right now is not really safe for tourists to travel to Brazil.  I’ve even had a former boss that visited Sao Paulo in mid 2011 for a business trip, & he had to travel around town with a personal driver & a bodyguard.  I know that sounds like a totally extreme case, but his experience really makes me think twice about traveling to my fantasy destination until the tourist safety situation improves.

Anyway…enough about my Brazilian obsession.  I am also listening to my (usual) favorite Bossa Nova & Jazz music on the Rio Radio App. I really love this App, except for the tiny little bug in the App where it’ll sometimes shut-off by itself…but otherwise, I am smit-ten!  Que é tão surpreendente. <— copied from Google Translate.

I’m a pretty ecclectic person when it comes to music.  I listen to almost all genres of music, including: Pop music in various languages, Alternative-Rock, Top 40 Urban, Punk, Ska, Classic 1950s-60s Pop & Motown music, Techno/Dance, etc.  Recently, I’ve really gotten interested in Jazz music.  Well, I mean…it’s mostly Bossa Nova, Soft Jazz, Brazilian Jazz & some Verve Jazz.  I’m not really familiar with Rythm & Blues, or the Bluegrass stuff.  I just mostly listen to the tropical/Latin type of Jazz music…with songs like “The Waters of March” & “Corcovado.

I’ve heard of Jazz music since I was a kid, but I never really knew anything about it until probably 2-3 years ago.  I first kick-started my interest in Jazz music when a friend of mine mentioned that his favorite ‘crusing’ song was “The Girl From Ipanema“.  I had never heard of that song before, so I decided to look it up on the Internet.  Little did I know, that this would be the song that threw me right into the deep end of the Jazz genre.  I was instantly hooked the moment I heard that song.

Now, I still don’t know a hill of beans about Jazz music… Some would still say I’m a “noob” (in Internet lingo), but I am excited to share this with everyone.  It certainly broadened my musical tastebuds.  These are some of the Jazz-type artists that I know of & like.  I have included links, so you can sample their songs.

I hope you enjoy this music as much as I do!  Curl up with a nice hot cup of coffee & gaze longingly out the misty-faced window on this brisk Autumn evening…
