A stirring, heartfelt tribute from one great Brazilian artist to another, The Music According to Tom Jobim (A Música Segundo Tom Jobim) celebrates the work of Brazilian composer, musician, and performer Antônio Carlos Jobim in perhaps the most appropriate manner imaginable: by showing the extent and continuing influence of Jobim and his music not only in Brazil but around the world. Performers ranging from Frank Sinatra to Judy Garland, Gal Costa to Lisa Ono, singing in languages ranging from Portuguese and English to Japanese, Dutch, Italian and French, offer renditions of Jobim classics such as “The Girl from Ipanema,” “Aguas de março” and “Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars.” Sheer joy.
