4.70 2

A beautiful set of symphonic tracks based around the work of Antonio Carlos Jobim – work that stretches back to the 50s, up through 60s bossa nova, and even includes some of Jobim's more complicated orchestrations from the 70s! The music is done in the arch-baroque style of other titles on the Biscoito Fino label – with a full symphony orchestra, smaller instrumental groupings, and even some strong vocal performances that drift in and out of the music. The set features re-interpretations of original arrangements by Jobim, Nelson Riddle, Deodato, Claus Ogerman, and others – and was put together by Paulo Jobim. Titles include "Lenda", "Macumba", "O Homem", "Saudade Do Brasil", "Matita Pere", "Chora Coracao", "Bangzalia", "Garota De Ipanema", and "Gabriela". Very nicely done 2CD set!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Trama/Ether (UK), 2004. Used
Heavy Brazilian soul from Patricia Marx – her greatest album to date, and a solid stunner that gets us from the very first note! The album was mostly recorded in Brazil, but it's got a fluid funky groove that almost reminds us of our favorite work from the Atlanta scene in recent years ... CD
