Dan Costa

Notes About the Sunday Jazz Brunch Radio Show

Tune in: Sunday October 4, 2020 8am - 12pm EDT 90.5 FM in Central Mass USA. Live Stream Here. Missed the show? Replay from Archives.
A few weeks ago pianist Dan Costa sent me his latest CD Live in California, and I’m glad he did. Right away, while listening to his version of O Barquinho - the most famous song written by Roberto Menescal - I knew that Costa has a unique concept. Most versions of the song sound pretty much the same to me, always great since the song is so good, but here Costa just goes slightly somewhere that nobody else typically goes.
So after thoroughly enjoying Live in California, I beseeched Dan for his other releases, and you’ll hear samples from all three of them in this and following editions of the Sunday Jazz Brunch.

Dan’s debut came in 2016, with Suite Três Rios, recorded in Rio De Janeiro. The CD features top-flight musicians, such as Ricardo Silveira. And in 2018 while in Italy he recorded Skyness, with such talent as Romero Lubambo and none other than Roberto Menescal himself. Born into an Italian and Portuguese family, Costa must have really enjoyed his subsequent tour, around the world really. Just this year he recorded with the great Ivan Lins.

We continue with new material from some really great artists: Antonio Adolfo, Billy Childs, Eddie Daniels, Kandace Springs, Gregory Porter, Lori Bell and Ron Satterfield, Graciliano Zambonin, Al Daniels, Miguel de Leon, and a slew of other tremendous jazz artists. I don’t know if you can tell, but I’m very excited by the quality of the material I’m getting in.

 Thanks so much for tuning and, and I hope you are safe and in good health.
