Ithamara Koorax Presents "Bim Bom - Symphonic Joao Gilberto" at Ibirapuera Auditorium
"Bim Bom - Joao Gilberto Symphonic"
After the acclaimed CD release of "Bim Bom - The Complete Joao Gilberto Songbook" -- praised by The New York Times, All About Jazz, JazzTimes and DownBeat --, the great Brazilian jazz singer Ithamara Koorax performs the compositions written by the Bossa Nova genius in a series of concerts with the Sao Paulo-based Jazz Sinfonica Orchestra, conducted by Maestro Joao Mauricio Galindo.
Titled "Bim Bom - Symphonic Joao Gilberto", the concerts include Gilberto's tunes that were recorded by such masters as Stan Getz, Charlie Byrd, Luiz Bonfa, Coleman Hawkins, Gary McFarland, Cannonball Adderley and many others, with arrangements by Roberto Sion, Marcelo Ghelfi, Don Sebesky and Claus Ogerman. The concerts also feature the world premiere live performance of a piece co-written by Joao Gilberto and Brazil's legendary writer, Jorge Amado. There's also a Gil Evans score originally written for an album he would have recorded with Joao Gilberto back in 1965, but which was never released.
