There’s nothing I like more than a gentle wind blowing through my wig as I sway to a fabulous bossa nova. On October 28 I’ll don my best headpiece, put new batteries in my portable fan and head up to Carnegie Hall for a tribute concert to Antonio Carlos Jobim and Stan Getz. Presented by the Fujitsu Concord Jazz Festival and produced by Pat Philips and Ettore Stratta, the concert will pay tribute to such timeless tunes as “The Girl From Ipanema” “Corcovado” and “Desafinado.”
Originally scheduled for June 14, but postponed due to legendary Brazilian vocalist Gal Costa falling ill, the star-studded tribute in now a go-go. Joining the fully recovered Costa (pictured) on the bill are Morelenbaum2/Sakamoto, Tom Scott, Cesar Camargo Mariano, Romero Lubambo and more.
