Dori Caymmi offers a less approving opinion of the Getz/Gilberto classic Girl from Ipanema and weighs in on the legacy of Brazilian music. Caymmi, son of renowned Brazilian musical icon Dorival Caymmi, is an internationally celebrated composer, arranger and singer in his own right, having written over 100 songs many recorded by many important artists worldwide, along with having a prominent career as an arranger and producer, as well as having written music for feature film and TV soundtracks. He’s old school for sure but a great interview! Special thanks to Dori and his wife Helena for being so generous and gracious. For more info: http://www.doricaymmi.com
