My Producer’s Notes

The warmth of Antonio Carlos Jobim! It’s my annual salute to Brazil’s greatest songwriter on The Sounds of Brazil, but I’m looking ahead while doing my best to “overlook” winter. Not easy, all of a sudden.

But this week, let the cold and snow melt away for the songwriter whose melodies inspired the warmth of the Brazilian song, Antonio Carlos Jobim. 

Every song during this two-hour show comes straight from the Jobim Songbook. All 27 of them! It’s a show you won’t want to miss when we celebrate the musical life of The Man From Ipanema. Be sure to join me!

Happy Listening,
Scott Adams
