Bossa nova is one of the most popular musical genres in the world. Songs such as 'The Girl from Ipanema' (the fifth most frequently played song in the world), 'The Waters of March', and 'Desafinado' are known around the world. This book -- a number-one bestseller when originally published in Brazil as 'Chega de saudade' -- is a definitive history of this seductive music. Based on extensive interviews with Antonio Carlos Jobim, Joao Gilberto, and all the major musicians and their friends, the book explains how a handful of Rio de Janeiro teenagers changed the face of popular culture around the world. Now, in this outstanding translation, the full flavour of Ruy Castro's wisecracking, chatty Portuguese comes through in a feast of detail. Along the way he introduces a cast of unforgettable characters who turned Gilberto's singular vision into the sound of a generation.
