The SESC Blues and Jazz festival brings the combined talents of Kenny Brown, J.J. Jackson and Nova Lapa Jazz together to all corners of the state this month. Designed to offer a taste of the international live music explosion in the metropolis to the likes of Nova Friburgo and Campos, the 16-day event makes for essential viewing for jazz lovers. American R'n'B singer Jackson was responsible for one of the biggest tracks of the sixties 'But it's Alright', and New Orleans native Kenny Brown has tours with the likes of Bobby Womack and Gloria Gaynor on his not inconsiderable CV.
