The Girl From Ipanema: BBC4

I’ve just finished watching a very informative programme on BBC 4 television, all about Brazilian music since the 1950’s, the Samba,  the coming of the Bossa Nova, Carlos Jobim, various lyric writers, and a bit of Brazilian history thrown in.  And music that jazz fans will recognise, especially lovers of Latin jazz. If you fancy some interesting, easy listening I guess you’ll be able to catch it on iplayer.
