Antonio Carlos Jobim : An Illuminated Man : by Helena Jobim Foreword by Robert Lamm, : Book Series : Hardcover : Published by Hal Leonard : # 333166
Features
Antonio Carlos Jobim by : Helena Jobim


Charlie Byrd; Herbie Mann; and others brought in bags full of discs from a trip to Brazil in 1961. Stan Getz listened to them and recorded “Desafinado;” which stayed for 70 weeks on the Billboard charts. Since then; no one can deny bossa nova's global appeal and influence upon jazz and world music. While celebrating bossa nova's 50-year presence in the United States; we can learn more about the movement's champion; Jobim; through poet and novelist Helena Jobim's Antonio Carlos Jobim: An Illuminated Man. His personal; intellectual; and professional history comes alive. With a vast; intimate; and revealing set of photographs; and an engaging; elegant and unique prose; this is the story of a true 20th-century's genius. Helena Jobim does justice to her brother's poetic voice. The composer of “Waters of March” read; questioned; and re-created the world he lived in not only through mesmerizing melodies; but also through down-to-earth poetry.

The biography also reveals Antonio Carlos Jobim's serious ecological concerns. To his 400 songs of inexplicable grace he has added his own epigraph in An Illuminated Man: “Every time a tree is cut down here on Earth; I believe it will grow again somewhere else; in another world. So; when I die; it is to this place that I want to go; where forests live in peace.”
