João Gilberto forever

We recently learned of the death of the great João Gilberto, one of our favorite musicians of all time. Here is an obituary (NYT). Referring to Mr Gilberto’s masterpiece “Chega de Saudade,” the Times quotes the singer Gal Costa, who was just 12 years old when that iconic song was recorded: “it changed my life, and not only my life but the lives of everyone in my generation.”

    RIP. I took his death harder than I expected. I didn’t listen to him as much as other artists but his music touched me in ways others didn’t or couldn’t. He is sorely missed.
