After much-acclaim and sold-out performances, Charlotte’s Jazz Arts Initiative’s (JAI) monthly series—The Jazz Room @ The Stage Door Theater – wraps up season 5 on September 18 with the Sasha Masakowski singing sounds of Brazil with a tribute to the king of bossa nova, Antônio Carlos Jobim . The Stage Door Theater is part of Blumenthal Performing Arts Center, at the corner of 5th and College in Uptown Charlotte.

Brazilian songwriter, composer, arranger, singer, and pianist/guitarist Antônio "Tom" Carlos Jobim is considered to be one of the most important songwriters of the 20th century, sometimes referred to as the George Gershwin of Brazil.  A key event in making Jobim's music known in the English speaking world was his collaboration with the American jazz saxophonist Stan Getz and João Gilberto, which resulted in “Getz/Gilberto” (1963) The release of Getz/Gilberto created a bossa nova craze in the United States, and subsequently internationally. Jobim is best known for songs such as “The Girl from Impanema”, “Wave”, “Triste” and “A Felicidade”.
