Music According to Tom Jobim

Nelson Pereira dos Santos in person,
Reception to follow

(Nelson Pereira dos Santos, 2011)

Wed, Apr 17, 2013 7 PM

Dos Santos is on hand to take your questions about this loving, tuneful film, a tribute to composer/musician Antonio Carlos “Tom” Jobim, who introduced Brazil and bossa nova to the world with “The Girl from Ipanema.”

Jobim went on to write countless classic songs recorded by the international royalty of popular music. For his latest film (and his second documentary on Jobim), dos Santos has created a loving, tuneful tribute to Jobim, building the entire film around his music with extraordinary renditions of Jobim standards by artists including Judy Garland, Dizzy Gillespie, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Jr., Ella Fitzgerald, Caetano Veloso, Gal Costa, Chico Buarque, and Jobim himself. (84 mins., video)

Dos Santos also joins in the festivities at the reception that follows.
