Sunday Morning with Avi Wisnia
I am a recent convert to the musical genius of Avi Wisnia. And I have to admit, I love what I have discovered so far from my little Samba King. Well, to be more truthful, he is my Bossa Nova Prince, I guess. But no matter, for when it comes down to it, I just love the music, and felt the need to share what I could with you. Avi has a unique sound as he blends the Brazilian sound with acoustic folk and West Coast jazz. And due to the generosity of Avi's ReverbNation page, I can bring you 11 songs, most of which could be found on Wisnia's latest album, Something New. While I am sure you will enjoy all the songs, I would advise paying close attention to track 2, TLC's No Scrubs given a new life, track 4, Wisnia's incredible Sink, track 5, the delightful Rabbit Hole, and track 7, the Cure's Love Song offered is a luxurious jazz setting. So on this fine Sunday morning, I say grab a beverage - tea, coffee, or a glass of wine - and settle in to listen to what Avi Wisnia has to play.
