About the film:
”Samba and jazz are brothers in blackness. They’re deeply related. They mix together in a way that no other styles do,” insists Alcione, the celebrated Brazilian sambista in the documentary SAMBA & JAZZ. She could also be talking about the cities of Rio de Janeiro and New Orleans, which gave birth to and incubated those trailblazing musical genres in their formative years.
