Second Records

The Composer of ‘Desafinado, Plays’ is the first album by Antônio Carlos Jobim released in 1963. The opening track “The Girl from Ipanema” is believed to be the second most recorded song in history. Jobim plays both guitar and piano on the recordings. The album was inducted into the Latin Grammy Hall of Fame in 2001. And in 2007, Rolling Stone Brasil ranked it number 58 in “The 100 greatest Brazilian music records”. Pete Welding of Down Beat said, “If the bossa nova movement had produced only this record, it would already be fully justified.”
