About The Event
Bossa Blue takes you back to the whisky-soaked juke joints and jazz clubs where The Blues first found the subtle pulse of Bossa Nova jazz.
The group is the vision of award-winning songwriter and band leader Brad Cole. A veteran of the Chicago music scene and current resident on NYC, Brad has 5 studio albums under his belt. His 2016 release Lay It Down has received critical acclaim: No Depression Magazine says “Lay It Down masterfully takes listeners from the familiar spaces of reflective, lyric-driven folk music to the expansive reaches of bossa nova jazz. It’s a beautiful album.” Since 2010, Brad has toured constantly across the US sharing the stage with the likes of such talented musicians as Chris Stapleton, James Hunter, Ingrid Michelson, Shovels & Rope and Dave Davies of The Kinks.
Cole says, “I grew up on jazz and over the years, I became a total bossa-phile. The idea re-arranging and playing some of my favorite rock/soundtrack-of-my-life tunes into a jazz/bossa construct feels like a natural progression for me as an artist, and it’s really fun. The blues elements in the set are just where I come from as a person, so again, going through my jazz collection with the idea of delivering basic and raw interpretation of these tunes is like hitting the jackpot for me.”
