Synopsis by Elizabeth Smith
Antonio Carlos Jobim appears in this upbeat program that sadly became his last recorded performance. Many talented performers including Shirley Horn and Herbie Hancock pay tribute to this Brazilian-born jazz genius. Jobim wrote over 400 songs during his career, many of which became true classics including "The Girl From Ipanema," "Once I Loved," "No More Blues," and "Wave." Jobim was eventually inducted into the Songwriter's Hall of Fame, long after his music became a treasured guest in the hearts of many of his listeners.
