featuring Vince Jones and the Orquestra do Brasil.
Music Director Doug de Vries.
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, 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 by an all-Australian lineup in the specially-formed “Orquestra do Brasil” to reimagine the smooth and sensuous sounds of Brazil’s favourite composer.
