We still don’t know who will plunk the keys on this evening, but they’ve got tank-sized dress shoes to fill up with tribute, improv, maybe both. Brazil’s Antônio Carlos Jobim (1927–1994) sat laconically with his hat and glasses at his keyboard, saying to himself, hey, I love standards, but I bet I can put fancier chords into the whole business and folks will still love me. So he did, and they did, and he begat new standards. Argentina’s Lalo Schifrin, still alive at 85, remains best known for his clipped, big-build theme to Mission: Impossible, documentary proof that folks can rock out in 5/4. He poured symphonic ambition into movie soundtracks. If you don’t know him, you definitely know his cinematic sounds. ANDREW HAMLIN
