The Brasilian composer Antonio Carlos Jobim wrote some very famous tunes such as 'Desafinado' (1959). It was this song that first mentioned the term 'bossa nova'. Though complex in melody and harmony, the bossa nova's real innovation was the radical change of the rhythmic structure of the samba. In this medley Manfred Scheider arranged some of Jobim's best-known bossa novas which were undoubtedly inspired by several exotic beauties. You can hear successively 'One Note Samba', 'Meditation', 'How Intensive' and of course the great evergreen 'The Girl from Ipanema'.
