136 Lost in 2019

Happy New Year to all our listeners 🙂

Our first show of 2020 began just as the cavern was recovering from a problem, and people had trouble getting in and staying in once there.  Nevertheless, we had a larger audience than expected, 25 for much of the time.

2019 ended up as a very crowded year, with a lot of people we wanted to pay tribute to.  One, surf guitarist Dick Dale, appeared only in the pre-show.  In contrast, Hal Blaine, the drummer who was part of the Wrecking Crew, appeared in five tracks all three sections, befitting his extensive career.

I seem to have mangled the Brazilian Portuguese pronunciations of João Gilberto and Antônio Carlos Jobim’s names.  Apologies to our Portuguese and South American listeners, I’ve been away and looked them up.

João Gilberto should be jzohao(n) DZheel-BAER-to.  The J is soft, close to the French J in Jean, and the ão should end with a faint nasal (n).  The G in Gilberto is soft, and the emphasis is on the second syllable.

Jobim – Jzo-BEEM  also has the softer J and emphasis on the second syllable.  I bet I’ll forget this the next time I have to pronounce their names…
