Bossa Blue takes you back to the whiskey-soaked juke joints and jazz clubs where the blues first found the subtle pulse of Bossa Nova jazz.
This extraordinary group of musicians delivers an upbeat cool and groovy vibe blending bossa nova, samba, rock and soul over a mix of upbeat originals and reimagined classic rock and pop standards.
Bossa Blue toured nationally in 2017/18 featuring their Tribute to the James Taylor Songbook: 16 James Taylor tunes reimagined and reenergized with an bossa, samba, jazz edge. Bossa Blue ’22 reemerged post pan with an upbeat groove-rich set that will move you body and lift your soul.
Bossa Blue is the vision of award winning songwriter and band leader Brad Cole. A veteran of the Chicago music scene and currently residing in NY’s Hudson Valley, Brad has 5 studio albums under his belt. His most recent release Lay It Down has received critical acclaim: No Depression Magazine says "Lay It Down masterfully takes listeners from the familiar spaces of reflective, lyric-driven folk music to the expansive reaches of bossa nova jazz. It’s a beautiful album."
Since 2010, Brad has toured constantly across the US sharing the stage with the likes of such talented musicians as Chris Stapleton, James Hunter, Ingrid Michelson, Shovels & Rope and Dave Davies of The Kinks.
