Joao Gilberto - The Warm World Of Joao Gilberto LP


Down At Dawn Records

Down At Dawn present a reissue of The Warm World Of João Gilberto, originally released in 1963. In summer 1958, João Gilberto -- an unknown 28 year-old Brazilian guitarist and singer from Bahia -- made his recording debut as a singer with two songs "Chega de Saudade" and "Bim Bom". With a new rhythmic feeling, batida, and rich harmonies he laid the basis of the modern Brazilian samba, now known as bossa nova. Underpinned by his insouciantly swinging guitar, João's seductive, vibrato-less vocals caressed both ear and soul in a mesmerizing, highly addictive combination, refreshing and modern. "Chega De Saudade" was a hit, launching Gilberto's career and the bossa nova craze. Soon, singers and guitarists were trying to imitate him and composers were all on a "Desafinado" (the second of Gilberto's hits) and "Chega De Saudade" kick. The long-awaited renewal of the Brazilian samba was now a fact. Antonio Carlos Jobim said: "Gilberto appeared as a light, as a big star in the firmament, in the heavens. He became a focus, because he was pulling the guitar in one way and singing the other way, which created a third thing that was profound. Yes, the guy who brought the bossa nova beat to the world was João Gilberto."
