There are some things the late Brazilian guitarist and singer-composer Luis Luiz Bonfá would still recognize about New York City today.
His 1959 recording of “A Brazilian in New York” seems to capture the sound of the city.

This includes another Brazilian guitarist who now makes his home in New York.

Enjoy these two tracks from his “Habitat”.
