Sinatra & Jobim

shapeimage_4.jpgFrancis Albert “Frank” Sinatra, Hoboken, New Jersey, 1915 – 1998
Antônio Carlos “Tom” Brasileiro de Almeida Jobim, Rio de Janeiro, 1927 – 1994

 

 

In 1967 Frank Sinatra recorded an album with Antonio Carlos Jobim, seven songs written by Jobim, one written by Cole Porter, one by Irving Berlin and one based on classical music by Borodin.

    In 1968 the album was nominated for the Grammy Album of the Year; it lost to Sgt. Pepper.

    Jobim is known as one of the innovators of the Brazilian style of music called “Bossa Nova”; the songs in the album that are not by Jobim are done in a Bossa Nova style.

    Jobim wrote words and music and worked with several Brazilian and American lyricists. On the 1967 TV show, Jobim plays the guitar; in later years we see him (on Youtube) playing the piano.

    When Jobim died at the age of 67, the airport in Rio de Janeiro was renamed Galeao – Antonio Carlos Jobim Airport.

    Jobim is best-known for The Girl from Ipanema.
