Default Last Bossanova for a legend

Joao Gilberto deceased. His influence on and importance for Latin, Brazilian and Bossanova and Samba music can hardly be overestimated. The musical fruits of his cooperation with Stan Getz are legend. Probabaly the best ambassador to the world that Brazil has had in the past 60 years.

What he was, returns to Earth. His music however stays friendly with the living .

A beautifullly sounding language, btw, this Brazilian version of Portuguese.

If you like this music and are new to it, Paolo and Tom Jobim and Astrud Gilberto are another great names to look out for.

If you defend yourself against clubbing, you will be shot dead. These procedures are known as the Rule of Law. - Edward Abbey

He was one of the greats. Bossa Nova was very popular here in the States in the mid-late '60s.

Though I am more into classical music and prog-rock like Genesis, King Crimson, Yes, UK etc., bossanova is a kind of music that can be accepted by the whole family - and it often sounds in our house - we have several discs and the names of Antonio Carlos Jobim, Joao Gilberto, Baden Powell are not alien to us. I find myself murmuring Desafinado or Corcovado or even Garota de Ipanema from time to time :-) That's a great music that can heal one's soul. Rest in peace, Maestro.
