Bossa Blue was born when Michael Petracca (guitar) and Carmen Kuchera (flutes) began playing together as a duet, mostly bossa nova, bebop and some blues. Michael’s musical experience and background is extensive and Carmen was new to jazz, playing only classical flute prior to Bossa Blue. Adding Dean Janoff (percussions) and Joe Gram (bass) rounded out the quartet.
