Portland's classic bossa and Brazilian jazz band

New Animated Bossa Nova Film in Production

November 14, 2019

I was really excited to read about the production of “They Shot the Piano Player,” which focuses on the very short life of Brazilian piano genius Tenorio Jr. The pianist was able to release only one album as a leader before he disappeared in Argentina, apparently the victim of mistaken identity.

Tenorio Jr.’s compositions have been featured in arrangements by Joyce Moreno and the wonderful Italian pianist Andrea Pozza, among others.
