Jobim’s legacy has lived on through his admirers, followers and apprentices. Bossa Nova and the Brazilian jazz tradition continue to flourish, led by the likes of drummer Duduka Da Fonseca and pianist Helio Alves. With the addition of the great vocalist Maucha Adnet, the friends have assembled a program of music highlighting the beauty of the Brazilian Jazz music that they have performed all over the world. Their new recording, Samba Jazz & Tom Jobim, was recorded to spread their passion even further. // Though Da Fonseca and Alves come from different parts of Brazil (Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, respectively), they both grew up with the sounds of popular Brazilian music and Bossa Nova in their ears. It was upon hearing jazz as teenagers that they decided to pursue the American born genre as their passion. Both would eventually land in New York City to become enmeshed in Gotham’s jazz world. // Beginning in 2007 at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola in New York, they began to perform a program of music called “Samba Jazz and the Music of Jobim” with the singer Maucha Adnet, who was a member of Jobim’s ensemble during the last ten years of his life. The trio has toured the world with the program and has developed an incredible empathy.
