Antonio Carlos Jobim (a.k.a. Tom) was the primary forced behind the Bossa Nova style, bringing it from Brazil to the rest of the world. Born in 1927, Jobim was a beach boy with a faint desire to be an architect, until he followed his instincts and took up music instead. Jobim was able to combine delicate harmonies of French impressionists with American jazz and fiery Afro-Brazilian sambas, making a new sound that would become his lifelong legacy. His most well known collaboration was with Stan Getz, Joao Gilberto and Astrud Gilberto, performing Jobim's classic The Girl From Ipanema. Tonight we hear his Meu Amigo. Also, music of Jason Treuting and Daniel Schnyder.
