In 1967, Frank Sinatra teamed up with Brazilian composer-pianist-guitarist-vocalist Antonio Carlos Jobim to record an album unlike anything he'd done before; an album of pure bossa-nova that would become a masterpiece. To commemorate the 50th Anniversary of that famous pairing, acclaimed vocalist Paul Marinaro ( "one of the most accomplished and promising jazz-swing vocalists in the country" Chicago Tribune) teams with guitarist Mike Allemana to perform the album live, with newly created arrangements that are respectful to and inspired by the originals. The band will also feature pianist Jeremy Kahn, bassist Clark Sommers, and drummer Jon Deitemyer. Among the classic songs performed will be "The Girl From Ipanema", "Change Partners", and "Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars". At once rhythmic and romantic, playful and sensual, world-wise and deeply poetic, you can blame it all on the bossa nova!
