Flutist Andrea Brachfeld pays tribute to legendary Brazilian composer Antonio Carlos Jobim on Brazilian Whispers, her ninth album as a leader, which was released on January 17 via Origin. The record finds her putting her spin on classic Jobim compositions, including this version of “Double Rainbow,” which features frequent collaborator Bill O’Connell on Fender Rhodes, Roni Ben-Hur on guitar, Harvie S on bass and Jason Tiemann on drums. The LP also showcases Brachfeld’s compositional prowess via three Brazilian-themed original songs co-written with O’Connell.
