"From Ipanema to the World: The Swingy Journey of Brazilian Music"

When: Tue., April 8, 7:30 p.m. 2014

The music of Mad Men has thrown another spotlight on bossa nova, but the style first captured the nation in the '60s, when the incredible Getz/Gilberto won Album of the Year at the 1965 Grammy Awards, one of two jazz records to ever capture the honor. (Fun fact: Astrud Gilberto, wife of Brazilian guitarist João Gilberto, was an untrained singer who had never recorded when she lent her classic vocals to "The Girl from Ipanema.") At 7:30 tonight, take a trip through that history at Colorado College's free presentation "From Ipanema to the World: the Swingy Journey of Brazilian Music" at Packard Hall (5 W. Cache la Poudre St., coloradocollege.edu).
