GRAMMY Nominated Anne Walsh’s and Tom Zink present: “The Girl From Ipanema – Celebrating the Music of Astrud Gilberto.” Astrud Gilberto may not have been the actual girl written of in “The Girl from Ipanema”, but it was her voice that propelled the song into the stratosphere, making it the most recognized song of all time. This was just the beginning of a career filled with beautiful music, and the start of the explosion of the Bossa Nova movement that reached beyond the borders of its native Brazil, and into nearly every corner of the world. Join Anne Walsh, Tom Zink, and some of LA’s most talented musicians as they explore Astrud’s unique music and contributions to this art form, and some of the most fun and grooving songs of the era. And of course…the song that started it all.
Featuring Mitchell Long – Guitar (Melody Gardot, Keiko Matsui) Hussain Jiffry – Bass (Sergio Mendes, Herb Alpert) Kevin Winard – Percussion (Steve Tyrell, Sergio Mendes)
