Descanse em paz amigo.
Oh no. Proper sad. Had lots of love for his music
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
There's other fantastic music of his out there.
Love the saxophone on the OP you posted Favelado.
The King of Bossa Nova.
An inspirational musician and now joins the late lamented Nara Leao,
RIP João. Thanks for the music.
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.
An evening with João Gilberto, the bright wallflower of bossa nova
A beautiful article. Guardian still worth it from time-to-time when politics isn't involved.
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.
