Brazilian Pop Master Marcos Valle Performs at Berklee
December 13, 2012
“So Nice (Summer Samba),” the bossa nova hit penned by Marcos Valle, has been recorded by nearly 200 artists, including Diana Krall, Oscar Peterson, and Dizzy Gillespie. On December 13 at the Berklee Performance Center, Valle will perform the chart-topper and other music from his 50-year recording career, which is reaching new audiences thanks to recent reissues out of Japan. A large student ensemble led by Berklee professor and fellow Brazilian Jetro Da Silva will back Valle.
