Brazilian Jazz Legend Ivan Lins live in London

London's Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club will host two unmissable shows from Brazilian musician Ivan Lins. Renowned as a carioca songwriter, vocalist, and pianist, Ivan Lins recorded several albums for EMI Brasil and Reprise, as well as writing Brazilian standards. Lins came to fame in Brazil in 1970 when Elis Regina recorded his song "Magdalena" for a hit. His worldwide debut, A Noite, appeared in 1979. Lins' most famous composition, "Love Dance" ("Lembrança"), has been recorded by dozens of jazz artists since. In 2005, Lins won two Latin Grammy Awards; Album of the Year and Best MPB (Música popular brasileira) Album for Cantando Histórias, becoming the first and only Brazilian artist and Portuguese-language artist to win the Latin Grammy for Album of the Year.
