The below quote is an excerpt from the article in which I find really interesting, "...........This Afro-Brazilian community was also a big consumer of African-American styles of music.

Brandon Jones's insight:

I must check out "The Great Gasby" when it premiere's on May 10th.  I must admit, that I haven't read this classic book, but I've heard nothing but great things about it.  This interesting novel gives a peak about the movie and some of the dynamics of the film, including insights from stars of the film.
