In Memoriam, Joao Gilberto

Recommended Posts

I learnt today of the death of Joao Gilberto, the 'father of bossa nova'.     In tribute, I am wearing my 'Girl from Ipanema' T-shirt, in happy memory of my time in Rio.

The one-time dive where Tom Jobim and Vinicius de Moraes, as poor musician and poet, wrote is now a popular bar and restaurant, named for the song only nine blocks, a short walk, from where I lived with Regina and Paulo.    Lovely people, lovely city!
