Fabrizio Bosso & Irio de Paula play “Summer Samba”

In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.
~Albert Camus (1913 – 1960)

In summer, the song sings itself.
~William Carlos Williams (1883 – 1963)

Outside my apartment in Chicago, on Lake Michigan, the fifteen-foot waves boom against the breakwater and the high winds toss frigid leaves around higgledy-piggledy, as though winter is teasing us as she prepares to come for real. Most aren’t ready for winter, or at least I’m not, so here’s something I distracted myself with: a nice version of Summer Samba performed by the smokin’ Italian trumpeter Fabrizio Bosso (and can I say, what a great name!) and fantastic Brazilian guitarist Irio de Paula. Tasty stuff. Duets like this really let you hear the inner workings of the music. And there’s some heat in there, too, especially during Bosso’s solo.

Have fun, and good luck with your practice.
