The early highlight of today's program was an honoring for Ella Fitzgerald – on the 100th anniversary of her birth !  I'm a big fan of hers; so I shared a number of tracks in her dedicated work with songs of Antonio Carlos Jobim ! From there I expand the spotlight towards Maria Bethania and a recording of hers: Enchantment/Encanteria.  Back and forth music from Brasil for much of the program, including Espana & Argentina. Also… I include a highlight segment of my top favorites for the final stretch of the 37th MSP International Film Fest !
