Sergio Mendes and Bebel Gilberto: The 60th Anniversary of Bossa Nova

From “Chega de Saudade” to “The Girl from Ipanema,” the Brazilian bossa nova has defined cosmopolitan cool from the late-1950s to today. The artform created by Tom Jobim and João Gilberto has been explored by musicians Stan Getz, Frank Sinatra and the SF Jazz Collective and inspired the next wave of Brazilian Tropicalismo artists like Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil. This celebration pairs producer, composer, keyboardist, vocalist and Brasil 66 founder Sérgio Mendes and singer Bebel Gilberto, daughter of João, whose 2000 album Tanto Tempo redefined samba and bossa nova for a new generation.
