About Milton Nascimento:
For this performance, Nascimento focuses on the bossa nova standards that provided him with early inspiration, songs he explores on his 2008 album, Novas Bossas. As on the CD, he’s accompanied by the superlative Jobim Trio (actually a quartet) featuring guitarist Paulo and pianist Daniel Jobim (son and grandson, respectively, of the late, seminal bossa nova composer Antonio Carlos Jobim), bassist Rodrigo Villa and master drummer Paulo Braga, a confederate of Nascimento’s since their teenage days in Minas Gerais. It’s a rare opportunity to hear one of the world’s most beloved and influential musicians delve into the songs that shaped him.
