Led by pianist/vocalist Kerry Politzer, the Portland-based Bossa PDX performs lovingly transcribed arrangements of Gilberto Gil, Roberto Menescal, Caetano Veloso, Chico Buarque, Joao Donato, and Tom Jobim compositions, among others. The group also plays a selection of upbeat Brazilian jazz tunes. Bossa PDX’s instrumentation includes vocals, piano, sax, flute, guitar, bass, and percussion. The Portland Mercury calls the group “pleasantly propulsive.”
