Antonio Adolfo is a famous Brazilian jazz musician. He has been making music for over 60 years and has released 25 albums. He is very talented and has been nominated for many awards. Some of his songs have been recorded by famous artists like Stevie Wonder and Dionne Warwick.

Adolfo’s new album is called *Love Cole Porter*. It will be released on June 7, 2024. In this album, Adolfo plays songs by Cole Porter, a very famous American composer. He gives these songs a Brazilian jazz flavor. Adolfo loves Cole Porter’s music because of its unique melodies and harmonies.

In this album, Adolfo is joined by other talented Brazilian musicians. They play various instruments like guitar, double bass, drums, trumpet, saxophone, flute, and trombone. Together, they bring a fresh and exciting sound to Cole Porter’s songs.

The album starts with the song “Easy to Love.” Adolfo’s version of this song has a 1960s samba jazz style. Another beautiful song on the album is “Ev’ry Time We Say Goodbye.” This song features lovely solos by the trumpet and guitar, as well as background vocals by Adolfo.

Adolfo also includes “I Concentrate on You,” a song that was once recorded by Frank Sinatra. He arranges this song with a bossa nova feel. Another song, “I Love You,” is performed with a samba jazz rhythm. “I’ve Got You Under My Skin” mixes two Brazilian styles: toada and bossa nova.

Other songs on the album include “Just One of Those Things,” “Love for Sale,” “Night and Day,” and “So in Love.” Each song has its own unique arrangement that blends Brazilian jazz with Cole Porter’s classic style.

The album ends with “You Do Something to Me,” which has a joyful feel and includes elements of Carnaval. Adolfo’s album is a beautiful tribute to Cole Porter, and his new arrangements make the songs feel fresh and exciting.
