>>>>How about some of the Brazilan Jazz/Bossa stuff from A.C.J.?
Quite a few in the "old" (hand transcribed) Real Book...
Jobim was a musical genius, his music was so beautiful,
melodic, and chordally sophisticated; it's a welcome change
to the more traditional American Jazz standards, and has the
respect of all the Jazzbos I've played with. Many versions of
these songs have been recorded, my favorites being the stripped
down period recordings by Joao Gilberto, or some by ACJ himself,
with lyrics in Portuguese; the Nelson Riddle backed ACJ versions
being a little too "elevatory" for my tastes....Either way,
ACJ's compositions are worth picking up and studying, and are
generally available on disc in compile or "greatest hits" forms.
