Mas Que Nada
by Al Jarreau Michel Petrucciani
I've been sitting here this morning watching the Paralympics skiers . I never knew how the blind skiers worked everything out. I still kind of don't know but it's interesting to watch and learn and get a bit of an adrenaline rush while itching for the Olympics to start. 21 days and 22 hours now. Al Jarreau with the 3 foot giant Michel Petrucciani on piano is nothing less than spectacular for me. Hopefully I'm back to juking after a rough week so far. Lots of inspiration including from my son @GQ_Solid . Hopefully my second oldest, @Anarchy4Life will have regular access sooner than later from where he is in Arkansas. And I hear rumors that my oldest may hop on the jukebox. He did a few back on TIMJ. I may have to start behaving myself lol.

Michel Petrucciani (December 28, 1962, Orange, France - January 6, 1999, Manhattan), was a French jazz pianist.


"Mas, que Nada!" (Brazilian Portuguese: [mas ki ?nad?]) is a song written and originally performed in 1963 by Jorge Ben Jor on his debut album, which became the Sérgio Mendes' signature song in his 1966 cover version. It was voted by the Brazilian edition of Rolling Stone as the 5th greatest Brazilian song. It was inducted to the Latin Grammy Hall of Fame in 2013

Brazilians use Mas que nada (or just que nada) colloquially to disagree with someone. A fitting English translation might be a sarcastic "Yeah, right!"

With many recordings, the title song is incorrectly written Mais que nada (Portuguese for "more than nothing") which would fundamentally alter its meaning. Also it should not be confused with the Spanish más que nada, which means "more than anything", or "above all", and is used in the sense of "mainly" or "principally".
