NTSC/Region 0. The king of Bossa Nova, Antonio Carlos Jobim, gives a glittering concert, shot in Los Angeles and featuring Jobim's brilliant ensemble of leading Brazilian musicians and singers. From the daring, benchmark sounds of `Desafinado' (partly responsible for launching the Bossa craze in the 1950's) to Jobim's most philosophical classic `Aguas de Mar‡o' (Waters of March), the intricate yet always engaging and enveloping sound of Jobim's music makes this concert a standout. Collaborating with such luminaries as the great Jacques Morelembaum on cello and Paulo Braga on drums, intertwining textures of flute and guitar with those of his piano, backed by a tight female vocal section , Jobim makes abundantly clear the talent and technique that made him an international superstar. As an added attraction, Brazilian superstar singer Gal Costa joins the ensemble for five gorgeous numbers - including an especially deft finale. A thrilling evening. Tracks include 'One Note Samba', 'Samba de Soho', 'Anos Dourados' and more. Immortal.
