Ithamara Koorax & Jobim rehearsing for a recording (October 1994).


Antonio Carlos Jobim - NorthWord



Manfredo Fest, "Inspirations From Brazil", NorthWord #NSCD 20842 (1995).[CD]

Includes two Jobim songs: Girl From Ipanema and Wave.

In the liner notes, Manfredo Fest himself wrote:

"Girl From Ipanema is Brazil's most popular song, composed by the late Antonio Carlos Jobim. The arrangement is based on Deodato and Jobim's version. This song, perhaps more than any other, is Brazil!"

"Wave - Jobim captured the essence of Brazil in this melody. We wanted this tune to be done with the authentic feel."

Personnel: Manfredo Fest (piano & synths), Patrick Bettison (bass), Dave Hardman (drums), Alvon Griffin (percussion), Phil Fest (guitars) and Lili Fest (vocals).

Produced and arranged by Manfredo Fest. Co-Produced by Phil Fest.
