Joao Gilberto passed away this morning at 88 years old. Joao was my Musical mentor his music lead me to the guitar which I have now played for more than 50 years.

So fate has set my schedule tonight, I’ll be doing a tribute to the quiet genius of Joao Gilberto. A.C. Jobim and other the great Bossa Nova players joining in tribute to my mentor Joao Gilberto. Your real life was such a nightmare it amazes me the ‘always beauty’ of your special Bossa Nova music. Thank you for all you gave and there will never be another like you – now you have all the time to play your music – be happy brother!
