It’s ‘birthday week’ for Antonio Carlos Jobim, and with nearly half the country battling some serious cold and snow this weekend, let’s leave it all behind and head for the golden tones of Jobim & the Ipanema sun with a guided tour of some of its most famous musical stories.

Yep, with all of the cold and bluster from coast to coast and north to south, January has turned out to be no bargain.

Thanks to Las Vegas and Barry Manilow, it’s Copacabana that usually captures the world’s attention when it comes to Rio de Janeiro’s beach scene. “… the hottest spot south of Havana!”

But today on The Sunday Brazilian Brunch, we’re in search of the Ipanema Sun, where the Carioca Chic chill to a bronzed glow along the South Atlantic surf.

Ipanema was Antonio Carlos Jobim’s zip code and it’s where Bossa Nova was born. All along its straight-line beach stretch from the rocky point of Arpoador to the impressive rise of  the Dois Irmaos mountain, there are stories to be told and music to be shared.

We’ll do plenty of both during this week’s show as we celebrate Antonio Carlos Jobim’s birthday by chasing the warmth of the Ipanema sun.

You’re welcome to join me… don’t forget the sun screen!

See you Sunday!
