Saw Joao Gilberto at Ravinia last night.
He is a true legend. Here’s a guy who would just sit in his robe and play his guitar and sing for hours and hours, sometimes in the bathroom (where the acoustics are perfect, of course) and he came up with an entirely new musical style.
My one regret is that I didn’t get to hear him sing “Garota de Ipanema.” That would have been awesome.
It also amazes me that one guy and one guitar could fill the space that they did.
If only I could be that cool at 72.
