Todo Dia é Dia do Tom

Antônio Carlos Brasileiro de Almeida Jobim (January 25, 1927 in Rio de Janeiro – December 8, 1994 in New York), also known as Tom Jobim, was a Brazilian songwriter, composer, arranger, singer, and pianist/guitarist. A primary force behind the creation of the bossa nova style, his songs have been performed by many singers and instrumentalists within Brazil and internationally.

Thanks for a wonderful Jobim tribute today I really appreciate it.

By the way, I have related question about the birth of modern brazilian jazz here in the US. Were there any feature length documentaries about this subject, that were either produced, here in the US or in Brazil? I haven't been able to find any answers to this on the web.
