Born Antonio Carlos Brasileiro de Almeida Jobim in the affluent Rio de Janeiro district of Tijuca, the man known by his compatriots as Tom Jobim, was one of the most brilliant songwriters, arrangers and musicians – on piano and guitar – to emerge from South America during the heady heyday of the 1960s. He achieved worldwide superstar fame thanks to his key piece –  ‘The Girl from Ipanema’– and while that luscious bossa nova is an all-time standard that he has replicated on numerous occasions, it doesn’t tell his tale because his music is the most glorious hybrid of Latin, pop and light jazz imaginable. One of the most important songwriters of the 20th century, Jobim’s work has soaked through the mainstream, influencing everyone from Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald to Carlos Santana, Dizzy Gillespie, Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea.

His collaborations with Sinatra and the saxophonist Stan Getz are masterful while his own solo albums should be a vital part of any discerning musical collection. Recipient of the posthumous Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, where he was honoured by his friend and kindred spirit Sergio Mendes, it’s important to say that his beautiful songs, such as ‘The Girl From Ipanema,’‘Desafinado,’‘Corcovado (Quiet Nights Of Quiet Stars),’‘Wave,’ and ‘Waters Of March’, to mention a few, became standards all over the world and were recorded by the greatest singers and musicians of our time. Tom Jobim's music is unique — his melodies are haunting and the harmonies extremely sophisticated. He is responsible for introducing Brazilian music to the world. His music resonates across time: you know it even if you didn’t think you did. His version of  ‘Brazil’– from the album Stone Flower - was the recent sound bed for ITV’s World Cup coverage and his legacy continues as he is interpreted by younger acts like will.i.am, Diana Krall, John Legend and countless others.
