    Award-winning jazz vocalist/lyricist, Georgia Mancio (Alan Broadbent, Ian Shaw, ReVoice! Festival) and virtuoso reeds player, Mark Crooks (The Lincoln Center NYC, BBC Proms/John Wilson Orchestra) co-lead this tribute to the remarkable Brazilian composer, singer, multi-instrumentalist and Bossa Nova co-creator Antonio Carlos ‘Tom’ Jobim.  Jobim’s beautiful, bitter-sweet melodies evoke the sunshine and easy rhythm of Brazil combined with a jazz musician’s sense of harmony, the eloquence of George Gershwin and Irving Berlin and the sweep of Debussy, Chopin and Ravel. Salud! Tom Jobim recreates the hits (Desafinado, Chega de Saudade, Corcovado and most famously The Girl from Ipanema) as well as lesser known gems with collaborators Elis Regina, Stan Getz, João and Astrud Gilberto. Georgia and Mark lead an all-star band to pay an authentic and soulful appreciation of the timeless music of one of the world’s greatest composers.
