Featuring Vince Jones and the Orquestra do Brasil
After the stunning sold-out success of Van Morrison’s Masterpieces at the 2016 MIJF, Australia’s leading jazz vocalist, Vince Jones, returns with an unmissable tribute to iconic Brazilian composer, pianist and songwriter, Antônio “Tom” Carlos Jobim.
A founder of the bossa nova style, Jobim’s 1965 mega-hit The Girl from Ipanema fuelled the craze for Brazilian-inspired music that swept the world. The genius behind some of the world’s biggest jazz and pop hits of all time, Jobim has been an enduring influence on subsequent generations of composers and musicians, and was much admired for his collaborations with the likes of Frank Sinatra, Stan Getz and João Gilberto.
A remarkable interpreter of songs in a contemporary jazz style, Vince Jones is joined special guest Doug de Vries (guitar) and an all-Australian lineup in the specially-formed “Orquestra do Brasil” to reimagine the smooth and sensuous sounds of Brazil’s favourite composer.
