In 1962, Antonio Carlos “Tom” Jobim wrote “The Girl From Impanema,” a sultry bossa nova song that has since become one of the most recorded songs in history. Experience the iconic bossa nova composer when an ensemble of New York’s top contemporary musicians pay homage to that song and Jobim’s Brazilian-jazz legacy at this special Father’s Day performance. Join vocalist Julie Eigenber who co-wrote one of Jobim’s biggest hits, “Why Not!”, joined by world guitar master composer Andres Laprida, Itaiguara Brandao, Cidinho Teixeira and Helio Schiavo as they celebrate the sounds of Brazilian music masters Vinicius de Moraes and Antonio Carlos Jobim. Andres Laprida has earned international acclaim in his own right, having traveled the globe playing concert halls, jazz festivals and ballets, as well as writing scores for both the big and small screen. This is a can’t miss show filled with incredible talent, each with a resume pages long.
