Antonio Carlos Jobim: An All-Star Tribute

<< Previous in As Seen on TV Next in As Seen on TV >>
Price: $19.98
Item Number: 2349
Artist: Jobim, Shirley Horn, Jon Hendricks, Gal Costa & Others

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 Antonio 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 legends 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.

 

“…(Jobim) is paid brilliant tribute in this video that captures his

last recorded concert appearance, which happen to feature a

cornucopia of jazz greats”                                         - Billboard Magazine
