Nota Bene is a duo based in Melbourne. Their repertoire includes music in the Bossa Nova and Samba style by great composers such as Antonio Carlos Jobim, Baden Powell, Pixinguinha, Jacob do Bandolin, Vinicius de Moraes etc.

Nota Bene bring Brazilian jazz to their audiences, demonstrating the various hues in which it can be presented. Some songs are illustrated as though in softer pastels and watercolors, with quiet chords delivered by guitarist Roman Goldine, persuading the listener to sway along. In contrast, some arrangements depict bright and strong strokes, inspiring a sense of freedom and happiness.

Nota Bene were recently featured at the Mornington Winter Music Festival in 2018
