Jazz Beat: The Sons of Brasil, at Broadway Jazz Club 

This year, the Sons of Brasil turns 23, and there is hardly another Kansas City jazz ensemble that matches its longevity. Blending Brazilian jazz, bossa nova and samba through both traditional and original compositions, this group plays Latin jazz with passion. The style of founder and leader Stan Kessler can flow sensuously smooth on trumpet or flugelhorn or swing hard to a Brazilian beat, driven by Doug Auwarter on drums, beautifully embellished with Roger Wilder's piano, and held together tightly with Greg Whitfield's bass. Now, Sons of Brasil has claimed a new home base, performing every other Thursday at Broadway Jazz Club.
