"This is a solo piano gig just Jobim playing and singing unaccompanied.
The piano and recording are excellent. It sounds to me like a hall of about 2000 people. It's all in Porteguese. All the tunes are one time through and about 2 and half minutes long.It's a great look into the mind of a genius."
Antonio Carlos Jobim, his friends called him Tom

"This import is Antonio Carlos Jobim playing piano and singing his songs. It says it is by Tom Jobim, but that is actually what his friends called him. He has a lot of family and friends in Brazil, and they all were inspired by his example. Lots of his children are still making music. You might think Tom Jobim was a son or a cousin, but that is just what they called him. Antonio Carlos Jobim sounds very musical, but it is very long, so Tom for short.
This has a lot of his best songs on it: Água de beber, Desafinado, Samba de uma nota só, Chega de saudade, Dindi, Corcovado, Águas de março, and of course, Garota de Ipanema. There 18 tracks. It is recorded live at a concert in Brazil. He speaks in Portugese between songs, and their is no attempt at translation, so I am thinking that this is a very intimate concert for friends and family, and other Brazilians. He feels very comfortable, even making a few mistakes, but they don't concern him, as if he is playing in front of friends.
This is a very nice recording, if you can find it."
