Mesmerizing vocals by Italian singer Daria Toffali. Tofffali started her singing career with various Italian bands playing different kinds of music: jazz, funk and Brazilian music. Here she pays homage to Brazilian composer Antonio Carlos Jobim, backed by the Massimo Farao’ Trio.
Antonio Carlos Jobim was a Brazilian composer, pianist, songwriter, arranger and singer. He was a primary force behind the creation of the bossa nova style, and his songs have been performed by many singers and instrumentalists within Brazil and internationally. Jobim is widely regarded as one of the most important songwriters of the 20th century. Many of Jobim’s songs are jazz standards. Jobim was an innovator in the use of sophisticated harmonic structures in popular song. Some of his melodic twists, like the melody insisting on the major seventh of the chord, became common use in jazz after him.
