Getz/Gilberto Bossa Nova Tribute: Authentic Brazilian Music

Friday, March 22nd

Gabriel Zacharias (Guitar/Vocals) and Brandon DeGorter (Saxophone) invite the audience to experience the beautiful Brazilian music of Bossa Nova in its most authentic version, sung in its original language and instrumentation.

Getz/Gilberto was recorded in 1963 and is the album that popularised bossa nova worldwide. It is one of the best-selling jazz records of all time, selling over one million copies. It was widely acclaimed by music critics, receiving the Grammy Award for Best Jazz Instrumental Album, and also became the first non-American album to win Album of the Year, in 1965.

In the first set, the quintet will play the album note for note including classics such as Girl From Ipanema and Corcovado. In the second set, they will be paying tribute to other Brazilian music classics written by Antonio Carlos Jobim.
