From commercial to jingles to film scores, Antonio Carlos Jobim, born in 1927, was already a musical celebrity in his native country of Brazil by the 1950’s. International stardom came when he wrote the music for the “Black Orpheus,” a French-Brazilian film that earned both an Oscar and Cannes Film award in 1959. The following year, his bossa nova movement caught hold in the U.S. as numerous jazz performers began recording songs with Jobim’s traditional Brazilian rhythms. Credited as one of the creators of bossa nova, he was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame and received the organization of American states Diplome d’Honneur for “exceptional talents and outstanding work on behalf of Music in the Americas.”
