Sky Blue Sky

Sky Blue Sky is a cross-continental collaboration, recorded via satellite between Philadelphia, USA and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Avi Wisnia teamed up with acclaimed Brazilian producer Bruno Migliari to create a sophisticated blend of jazz, pop, and Brazilian rhythms – where instruments like the pandeiro, cavaquinho, and Avi’s trademark melodica playfully intertwine. Reminiscent of music by Bebel Gilberto, Stan Getz and Antonio Carlos Jobim, the breezy bossa nova of “Sky Blue Sky” transcends geographical borders and captures the romantic possibility as clear as a blue summer sky. A version of Sky Blue Sky will appear on the forthcoming full-length album Catching Leaves. (2015)

Lyrics

Lower down the mast, sailing out to sea
The sun is setting fast behind us
Silver shades and beer, just like a movie star
Side to side, you play your cavaquinho

Sky blue sky blue sky

Everyone we know has come to meet us here
Leaving all the world behind us
Throwing arms around, swaying with the wind
Side to side, you play your cavaquinho

Sky blue sky blue sky

Slowing down the tide, breathing deep the air
The sun is rising fast behind us
Your voice comes in waves, gentle on the breeze
Worlds collide, you play your cavaquinho

Sky blue sky blue sky
