João Gilberto

Antonio Carlos Jobim and Vinicius de Moraes’s samba ‘Chega de Saudade’ as sung by João Gilberto is considered the ground zero of bossa nova. The three of them had spent their youth listening to the samba, jazz, trad and country music of the 1930s and 1940s. From it, they created the new way. Have a great weekend.

I am embarrassed to say that I was first introduced to ‘Canto de Ossanha’ by alternative rapsters Jurassic 5. I like their cover a lot, but it’s not a scratch on Baden Powell’s original take that featured as the opening track on Powell and Vinicius de Moraes’ 1966 long player Os Afro-Sambas. As the title suggests, this was ground zero for afro sambas. You can hear the influence it had on the global music scene. Do take some time to watch the YouTube clip – a virtuoso.
