Vinicius de Moraes, the poet behind many of the songs of Antonio Carlos Jobim, João Gilberto, and other Brazilian artists, died in 1980; later, Jobim and Gilberto came together to honor their colleague in performance. From YouTube, here are two of their best-known tunes: first Desafinado, then Garôta de Ipanema.

The sound quality is mediocre, but the musicianship is mesmerizing and the energy unbelievable. João sings a beautiful impromptu introduction to Garôta commemorating Vinicius, the poetinho, and Tom Jobim.
