    If there was one melody that defines Brasil, but that’s not from Brasil, it is Estate...meaning spring, in Italian. I first heard it in Brasil played by Luis Essa, (a marvelous pianist who lived and died in Rio) then I recorded it in the US a long time ago with Joe Pass, Oscar Castro-Neves, John Pisano. Because it has a melody that circles around and around and ends up where it started out, it has the shape of a classic story about life, or love, or “spring”, as it’s titled, put to music. Besides, all my musician friends know and love this song.
