Quiet Nights & Quiet Stars: NJO Writers Night Honors Jobim

Nashville Scene Critic's Pick …

Antônio Carlos Jobim wrote the music for one of the most popular songs of all time, “The Girl From Ipanema,” whose sultry groove and breezy melody pretty much defined Brazilian music in the public consciousness. But Jobim, a prolific musician and one of the forefathers of the bossa nova style, wrote dozens of other fabulous compositions, many of which have become standards around the world — songs like “Desafinado,” “One Note Samba,” “How Insensitive” and “Corcovado,” to name just a few. Tonight the Nashville Jazz Orchestra presents a program titled “Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars,” highlighting the work of the late Brazilian superstar. Featured vocalists include Christina Watson, Crystal Miller and Joe Freel; pianist Will Barrow will also perform. Considering that Jobim’s catalog might as well be subtitled “Music to Get Laid By,” this may be one of the best date nights around. (Attention NJO fans: the orchestra’s long-running Monday night concert series at the Commodore Grille has moved to Tuesdays at 6 p.m.)
