    Default Help naming that tune. Jobim? Samba? Bossa?

    Don't you hate it when you hear a cool song on the radio but never hear who did it?

    Not much to go on I know. This is the first bit of the melody line:

    It sounds like a Jobim tune but I can't find it on YouTube.

    Probably could be a cool uke accompaniment. The version I heard was guitar, had a gazillion chord changes, and the squeaking strings was driving me nuts.

    That sounds somewhat like a tune out of The Jungle Book, possibly when the python (Ka?) has Mogli in his coils, could be 'Trust In Me'.
    Trying to do justice to various musical instruments.

    That is 'Manha de Carnaval' ('Morning of the Carnival'), by Luiz Bonfa. It's from the movie 'Black Orpheus'.

    Good guess, but no.

    Before Chuck Mangione became a pop star, he recorded a beautiful version of this back around 1972. You can find it on youtube. I have it on vinyl!!!!!!

    I've been working on that song for months with Sarah Maisel.

    Default See the Movie!

    Hello Jim,

    First of all, you're late! Carnival in Rio (and here) will have been gone three weeks by tomorrow. We're all in Lent now. But that song has always been a favourite of mine and I've been humming it off and on for the past three weeks.

    If you haven't seen Black Orpheus, by all means do so. Being a foreign film it didn't get all it's due at the Oscars. It didn't win for music in spite of introducing Bossa Nova to the world. It didn't get a nominamtion for Best Picture, although I imagine it had quality competicion back then (1958-1960?). The producers were French, and it did win for Cimenatography. The "super-color" is perfect for a Carnival and Rio never looked better.

    I'd suggest a couple of things. First, get a decent version of the Greek Orpheus myth and read through it. Many of the scenes and characters in the movie are Brazilian representations of the Greek, and they will jump out at you if you know what to look for.

    Second, do not, do not, listen to the dubbed version. It's atrocious! Subtitled versions are more common and they present the rythym and inflection of the dialogue better, to say nothing of how the dubbed version largely massacres the music.

    Take a look; I can't imagine you won't be enthralled.

    Thanks Dirk, I'll have to check it out. I had heard the song before but when I heard it this past weekend could not place it. Thanks to Steedy! Now I may have to try and learn it, but if I do, it won't be one of the chord melody versions. I'll have to dumb it down to just the chords and will still be a challenge!
