Description by OLDIES.com:

Direct from Brazil comes this deeply appreciative musical tribute to Antonio Carolos Jobim (1927-1994), co-founder and leading composer of the Bossa Nova. With over four hundred songs to his credit, Jobim virtually singlehandedly brought the Bossa Nova to the world, where it became a staple ingredient in the jazz cookbook. Composer of such standards as "Girl From Ipanema," "Disafinado," "No More Blues," "One Note Samba" and "Wave and Dindi," Jobim was inducted into the Songwriter's Hall of Fame in 1991. Together with Jobim himself (in his last recorded concert appearance), jazz giants, new and old, recreate Jobim's classic melodies in a beautiful concert-length "Thank You."

Product Description:

Late Brazilian jazz pioneer Antonio Carlos Jobim is captured here in his last recorded concert featuring such classic compositions as "Girl From Ipanema" and "Chega De Suadade (No More Blues)." Herbie Hancock performs and emcees. Adapting the percussive excitement of the samba to the intimacy of the guitar while echoing the
melodies and harmonies of Cool Jazz, Jobim's new sound quickly became a staple ingredient in the jazz cookbook, and in 1991 Jobim was inducted into the
Songwriter's Hall of Fame.

Plot Synopsis:

This salute to the father of Bossa Nova, Antonio Carlos Jobim, features performances by Jobim himself, as well as jazz great Herbie Hancock, Shirley Horn, Joe Henderson, Gal Costa and others.
