From the superfine sands of Ipanema, we have gathered a cornucopia of suave-defining tunes by the '60s king of bossa nova himself, Antonio Carlos Jobim, guaranteed to cool you down and raise your spirit. Often hailed as the Gershwin of Brazil, Antonio Carlos Jobim's songs like 'Desafinado', 'Corvovado', 'The Girl From Ipanema' and 'One Note Samba' have become standards of the jazz repertoire. Their graceful, gently swinging melodies and harmonies have since the '60s given musicians a strikingly original alternative to the more traditional Tin Pan Alley sources. A sensitive arranger, pianist, guitarist and singer, Jobim has made a significant contribution to the music of the 20th Century, both as a songwriter and musician.
