Nota Bene Due – Brazilian Jazz

Nota Bene is a duo based in Melbourne and was formed in 2016. Their repertoire includes music in the Bossa Nova and Samba style by great composers such as Antonio Carlos Jobim, Baden Powell, Pixinguinha, Jacob do Bandolin, Vinicius de Moraes and many more.

Nota Bene bring Brazilian jazz to their audiences, demonstrating the various hues in which it can be presented. Some songs are illustrated as though in softer pastels and watercolors, with quiet chords delivered by guitarist Roman Goldine, persuading the listener to sway along. In contrast, some arrangements depict bright and strong strokes, inspiring a sense of freedom and happiness.

Well celebrated and represented across the globe, Brazilian music is relaxed and alluring on the surface and sophisticated and intricate within. It can evoke a deep sense of romance, melancholia, hope and joy. Nota Bene also perform popular Jazz standards with a Brazilian feel.
