And Don't Forget João Gilberto

SOURCE: Published:
Joao Gilberto The great Brazilian bossa nova pioneer turned 80 in June and will be giving a concert in Rio de Janeiro on November 15, Brazil's Republic Day. For details, go here. If you don't read Portuguese, just enjoy the graphics and his singing in the background.

Then watch this video of Gilberto performing one of Antonio Carlos Jobim's greatest hits, accompanied by the composer.

Maybe 80 really is the new 60.
