O Barquinho 02:30
Bim Bom 01:35


Though I'm certain I had heard Brazilian music previously, I'll always remember the moment I first heard the live version of Girl From Ipanema at Carnegie Hall with Joao and Astrud Gilberto. I vividly remember being frozen in my tracks at the sound as it drifted effortlessly from the family room stereo, echoing throughout the empty house. I sat in the middle of the stairs I was climbing, entranced, enchanted, and utterly hooked. It seemed to answer some question that I wasn't even consciously asking.

Now I am by no means an expert on this most important of art forms nor I have studied it at great length. I simply find it to be music I continually return to and relish in the ceremony of listening to. It's become such a comforting part of my musical landscape that I simply felt a tribute would be appropriate.
