A great performance for all tastes, but especially for those who love Bossa Nova. It is an especially interesting group with the master at the piano, accompanied by guitar, bass, cello, drums, flute, female and male voices.

Beautifully recorded and with the excitement of a live performance.

The rhythms, melodies and harmonies of this great south american musician reflect his distinct genius. This genius can be seen and heard at work in this marvelous documentary. What a treat to have this in our library!

It's a long, expensive, way from Rio to Montreal. Nevertheless, the musical trip might be worth it, if you can find this video at the right price. Apparently, it's out of print because the prices quoted are high. In this video, Antonio Carlos Jobim plays at the 1986 Montreal Jazz Festival before a huge audience. Backed by a small, tight, band, one of the real joys of this release is the interaction between Jobim at piano and the five women comprising the chorus. The ladies are a joy to watch. You can easily discern that they are enjoying themselves and proud to be a part of the show. Jobim was a gifted composer and played piano and a nice bossa nova guitar during his career. But, to be candid and blunt, singing was not his forte. Nevertheless, the strength of the compositions and arrangements supports a fine performance. Highlights are: Samba De Uma Nota (One Note Samba), Chega De Saudade and Agua De Beber (Drinking Water), all of which have become rhythmic Brazilian classics. If you can't find this DVD at an affordable price, the aforementioned songs from this perfomance can be viewed on youtube. It's a worthwhile introduction to Jobim's creativity and the impact that he had on Brazilian music.
