Book Launch - The Music of Antonio Carlos Jobim

Announcing the Brisbane launch of Peter Freeman's book 
The Music of Antonio Carlos Jobim

Antônio Carlos Jobim has been called the greatest of all contemporary Brazilian songwriters. He wrote both popular and serious music and was a gifted piano, guitar and flute player. One of the key figures in the creation of the bossa nove style, Jobim's music made a lasting impression worldwide, and many of his songs are now standards of the popular music repertoire. In his book Peter Freeman shines a light on on not only the many musical influences that formed Jobim's musical output, but also the stylistic peculiarities that were the product of a great composer. 

Come and join the celebrations at the Brisbane Jazz Club and get your book copy signed by the author for the best price (much less expensive than online). You know his music - "Girl from Ipanema", "Corcovado", "One note samba", but these are just some of Jobim's wonderful songs and instrumental compositions. Hear what the book is all about with the Tropical Dance Orchestra performing some exquisite Jobim pieces with full orchestration including the TDO's five-piece string section.

About the book:

The Music of Antonio Carlos Jobim                    by Peter Freeman
One of the first extensive musicological analyses of the Brazilian 
composer, this book examines the music, philosophy and circumstances
surrounding the creation of Jobim's popular songs, instrumental 
compositions and symphonic works. It reveals not only the many musical 
influences that formed Jobim's musical output, but also the stylistic 
peculiarities that were as much the product of a gifted composer as that 
of the rich musical environment and heritage that surrounded him.
