INCLUDES 16 -PAGE BOOKLET

A representative collection of Jobim’s songs in classic versions performed by some of the most remarkable bossa nova artists, and in many cases presenting Jobim himself as accompanist, conductor or arranger.

Among the featured stars are João Gilberto, Luiz Bonfá, Sylvia Telles, Elizete Cardoso, Walter Wanderley, and Sergio Mendes.

Brazilian songwriter, composer, arranger, singer, and pianist/guitarist Antonio Carlos Jobim (1927-1994), known in Brazil as Tom Jobim, was a primary force behind the creation of the bossa nova style. Moreover, his songs (most of which had lyrics by poet, diplomat and bohemian Vinícius de Moraes) have become true classics and have transcended the genre, as they continue to be played and recorded by countlesssingers and instrumentalists within Brazil and throughout the world.

Jobim himself did not know how many songs he composed, but estimated that there were over 300 of them. His biographers, however, pushed the figure closer to 400.
