when I’m making something and I’m really getting down to it i begin to feel like tom and elis seem to here in this video at around 2:50. i want the music to make other people feel like that. above all i hope to share that feeling. the portuguese language promotes rhythmic phrasing that feels unwieldy and unnatural in english (not impossible its just not what feels easy). tom jobim is one of my favorite songwriters and this is one of my favorites of his.
