I don't think I have any of his recordings, but I know his work. He was a master, of course, and is still much revered here in the US. There are so many great guitarists that name him as an impetus, a reason they chose the instrument.I am not so "cultured" and tend toward more jazz and "pop" oriented. From Brazil I've enjoyed Tamba Trio and Bonfa and Gilberto, of course... Too many to name, I guess. :>)
I agree oddio. Do you like Villa Lobos too?
Hard to pick a favorite... but Bossa Nova still rules at my house. And it's hard for any other composer to catch up with Jobim.:>)
My favorite song ever is Tom Jobim's 'Wave'.
I hear Jobim's song while I'm solving the puzzle. :>)
