You see, she liked these young musicians, and in comes John Work and I - we were young to her. We were something sent down, and she didn't know which one to choose. Each of us knew we were not choosing her! We just wanted to talk, but she was interested in other things - Sterling Brown quoted in Ma Rainey and The Classic Blues Singers, Derrick Stewart-Baxter

I'm very sorry to hear of Joao Gilberto's death, though he certainly lived a life.  What a thoroughly musical person he was; his ability to phrase vocally, independent of what he was doing on the guitar, was amazing.  His album "Live At Montreaux", a concert performance featuring just him singing and playing is one of my favorite recordings ever by a self-accompanied singer.  Miles Davis is reputed to have said of him that he would be happy to listen to him read the phone book.  He was certainly the prime influence on my Brazilian playing.
