It was Tom Jobim’s own family that suggested Carminho delve into the Jobim songbook, full of classics such as “The Girl from Ipanema”, “Wave”, “Meditation” or “Sabiá” - and underlined it by signing up the Banda Nova to back the singer during the recordings. The Banda Nova was the last of Jobim’s stage and studio backing bands, formed by his son and grandson, Paulo and Daniel Jobim, as well as celebrated cellist Jaques Morelenbaum (who had already collaborated on Carminho’s previous record) and drummer Paulo Braga.
