    Hey guys, today I was saddened to hear that João Gilberto, the father of bossa nova, has passed away.
    This is a small arrangement of "A Felicidade" by Jobim, dedicated to João, may he rest in peace.

    Oh no. I was just listening to Voce e Eu and learning the Portuguese lyrics.

    Commenting on Gilbert's voice, Stan Getz said that Gilberto could sing the phonebook and it would still sound beautiful.

    Very sad.

    Getz is right, João's voice was so mellow and warm. You could feel in his voice what a delicate and beautiful soul he had.

    Very nice arrangement of A Felicidade - one of my favorite Jobim songs!

    Your rendition has a lot of energy to it.

    Thank you for posting your video for us!
