    The other day I was watching BET Jazz and I was treated to a performance of "Rosa Maria" and her perfect band. I MEAN PERFECT!! If you get BET Jazz I suggest you keep an eye out for them, really great to see. They performed a killer rendition of "California Dreamin" This guy Osmar Ventura was playing bass and he held it down and then some. It was an old show in a small club in Rio I believe. Apparently he's come out here to California too http://sudo.3.pro.tok2.com/Quest/cards/J/Jazzvisions/BrazilianKnightsAndALady.html and played with Patti Austin. Anyone else know any more info on him? It would like to get my hands on some more of his work :eek: ;)
