|Antonio Carlos Jobin by by armatoj cc|
First, ANTONIO CARLOS JOBIM and HERE....what a 'tasty' guitarist. I'm gonna research him and let you know his history O.K?....Steve's doin' 'Triste' [thanks juan dalessandro] tonight. 'Triste' was written by Jobim, and is performed by 'Jazzerisima Jazz Trio' on video below. 'Triste' means 'sad' in Spanish...BUT, there's NOTHING sad about this song, gonna look up triste to make sure my Spanish is correct ....it's been along time since I've been around that language....Am I right? Does anyone know?
Jazz has a lot of 'changes', compared to other styles of music. Takes a bit to learn everything that's going on in a song....BUT, it's sure worth it, and, is really a great idea to know your stuff when reading those music charts...and, reading helps going through ALL those changes I was telling you about. I'm learning alot. Want BARTLETT to have an upright bass...he'd look so handsome, aren't they wonderful? They're also called a double bass. I'll start checking Craigslist I guess. Jan
O.K....Antonio Carlos Jobim was the main creator of the 'Bossa Nova' style of music, he gets the credit for that on WIKIPEDIA. He was born in 1927 and was from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He wrote 'The Girl From Ipanema' [thanks fabtv ]..
He died in 1994, but left lots of songs that are today known as 'Jazz Standards' and are well known internationally. Besides, being a singer/song writer, Jobim played piano and guitar.
