Direct from Brazil in his last recorded performance, this DVD, Antonio Carlos Jobim: An All-Star Tribute, features the compositions of Bossa Nova originator & music icon Antoinio Carlos Jobim, joined by an international delegation of Jazz giants to recreate his classic melodies in this beautiful, concert-length “Thank You.” Composer of countless unforgettable songs, including Girl From Ipanema, Tom Jobim virtually single handedly brought the world Bossa Nova music. The esteemed pianist / vocalist is joined on stage by a cornucopia of musical legands such as Herbie Hancock, Shirley Horn, Joe Henderson, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Jon Hendricks, Gal Costa, & many more in this once-in-a-lifetime concert DVD.
With over 400 songs to his credit, Jobim lead the Bossa Nova movement, where it became a staple ingredient in the Jazz cookbook. Jobim’s new sound adapted the rhythmic variety and percussive excitement of the Samba to the intimacy of syncopated guitar, while echoing the melodies and harmonies of Cool Jazz.
