About

Led by pianist Kerry Politzer, Bossa PDX is a Portland-based band that plays lovingly transcribed arrangements of Gilberto Gil, Roberto Menescal, Caetano Veloso, Chico Buarque, Joao Donato, and Tom Jobim compositions, among others. We also play a selection of upbeat Brazilian jazz tunes.¬†Our instrumentation includes vocals, piano, sax or flute, guitar, bass, and percussion. (The Portland Mercury calls us “pleasantly propulsive,” and we think that’s a good description.)

We hope you will sign up for our mailing list and come on out to a gig.

(Also, we’ve just added a TeePublic store!)
