Two By Jobim !!

Continuing with the Latin Jazz theme: Hearing the two distinctly
different versions of Águas de Março is what compels me to share
these albums. Not much is needed to be said about Antonio, which
you probably don't already know. He, and a handful of other Latin
performers changed music, internationally, once their work broke
out of its respective countries; Imitation followed. That isn't to
say there weren't other Latin musicians of talent and ingenuity.
But, people such as Jobim, and Gilberto, etc. were on top of
their game, by far. What beautiful sounds!
