Jazz Meets Jobim
Thu, Feb 11, 7:30 - 9:00 pm
Jaqua Concert Hall, The Shedd Institute
During his lengthy career, Brazilian composer Antonio Carlos Jobim wrote many hundreds of songs, many of which were in the vanguard of the emerging bossa nova style. Songs like "Desafinado", "The Girl from Ipanema", and "One-Note Samba" were quickly adopted by jazz musicians who were inspired by the pieces' lilting rhythms, rich harmonies, and memorable melodies. The general public took notice too; saxophonist Stan Getz's recording of "The Girl from Ipanema" (with Jobim at the piano and with a vocal by Astrud Gilberto) reached the #5 position of the Billboard pop singles chart in 1964. Other Jobim songs that quickly entered the jazz repertoire include "A Felicidade" (from the movie Black Orpheus), "Insensatez" (in English as "How Insensitive"), "Corcovado" ("Quiet Nights"), and "Chega de Saudade" ("No More Blues").
Saxophonist Carl Woideck and his Jazz Heritage Project will play Jobim classics and rarities in imaginative bossa nova, samba and swing interpretations. A highlight will be a video of Jobim in performance.
