    I didn't know his story or his music, apart from the girl from Ipanema and I probably knew it from covers rather than from his original.

    Quite a story though: João Gilberto - Wikipedia

    RIP

    There's other fantastic music of his out there.

    What do people recommend? I'm quite old fashioned, I like albums, can be a compilation, I play cds in my car and downloading mp3s onto disc doesn't always work.

    I have been playing his stuff almost on a loop, very relaxing.

    It struck me that the girl from Ipanema could have been a bit of a pervy song from anyone else, tall tan young and lovely etc .. :)

    Lots of cover versions on youtube even Amy Winehouse.
