Brazilian Bossa Nova Comes to Best Buy Union Square

Avi Wisnia brings his Brazilian bossa nova to Best Buy Union Square with a special acoustic performance on May 27th to celebrate the release of his debut full-length album Something New. Recorded by Grammy-winning producer Glen Barratt (Amos Lee), Something New’s unpredictable cover songs only highlight the main attraction of his new collection of songs: his incomparable mish-mash of piano-pop meets bossa nova pop gems. Fans will have the unique opportunity to purchase Something New in advance of the national release on June 29th. In addition, all fans who purchase the CD will receive a limited edition kazoo, a trademark of a live Wisnia performance.

We also have it under strict confidence a cover of an 80s hit will be unveiled for the first time at this performance. For those of you who've followed the career of Sex & the City's Jessica Parker, she was in this great movie in the 80s with lots and lots of dancing. And by great, I mean 80's great. All we'll tell you is that the name of the movie is also the name of the hit song from the artist he'll be covering. If you have time on your hands, definitely hit Union Square on the 27th.
