Antonio Carlos Jobim (1927-1994) combined the rhythm and feel of Brazilian samba with evocative melodies in the style of American jazz, creating a distinctive sound which has revolutionised jazz music. Songs like How Insensitive and The Girl From Ipamena have become integral parts of the repertoire of Jazz musicians and Latin musicians alike. This superb volume contains 12 of Jobim's classic songs, arranged for easy piano with lyrics and guitar chord symbols.
Very pleased with this book. Although an easy piano version, it has chords to aid ones own understanding and extemporization. Includes all his classics. Anonymous

I purchased this book. It's great for beginners or professionals as it has great Latin songs and I love each and everyone. I have a digital piano, I play them and they are great. Go for it!!
