Brought together by a shared passion for bossa nova, samba, and the timeless music of Antônio Carlos Jobim, Beleza! (pronounced be‧lé‧zah) takes its name from the Portuguese word for “beauty.” Beleza is also Brazilian street slang for “yes” or “it’s a deal.”

“For the best Bossa Nova outside of Rio de Janeiro, check out BELEZA! Featuring Dmitri Matheny and John Stowell, this duo represents the very essence of the Brazilian musical form. Stowell’s rich chord voicings and unbelievable lyricism are the perfect match for Matheny’s masterful and melodic flugelhorn improvisations.”
—LooseWig Jazz

“Extravagantly, unashamedly, irresistibly pretty. A spirit voice that compels attention even when it whispers.”
