Late Brazilian jazz pioneer Antonio Carlos Jobim is captured here in his last recorded concert featuring such classic compositions as Girl From Ipanema and Chega De Suadade (No More Blues). Herbie Hancock performs and emcees. Adapting the percussive excitement of the samba to the intimacy of the guitar while echoing the melodies and harmonies of Cool Jazz, Jobims new sound quickly became a staple ingredient in the jazz cookbook, and in 1991 Jobim was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
