Brazilian Jazz Singer Luciana Souza Makes Her Mark

In 2013, Brazilian vocalist Luciana Souza garnered not one but two Grammy nominations, for The Book of Chet (for Best Jazz Vocal Album) and Duos III (Best Latin Jazz Album). The 47-year-old vocalist and Los Angeles resident now has a total of six Grammy nominations, a distinction that has gone largely unrecognized in her native country. Here is a link to a Huffington Post piece I just published about Luciana: Luciana Souza: A Bossa Nova Baby Makes Her Mark in the Jazz Realm.

And, here are a few Luciana Souza YouTube videos:
