✨✧ Antonio Carlos JobimAntonio Carlos Jobim (aka Composer Of Desafinado Plays) ... LP
Elenco (Brazil), 1963. Very Good- ... $24.99
Antonio Carlos Jobim's classic Verve session from 1963 – a tremendous record, done with a wonderful airy sound that became the trademark for bossa production in America – and which also had a great inspiration on the sound of mid 60s bossa in Brazil! Claus Ogerman arranged and conducts the orchestra, and Jobim plays guitar and piano – with a core group that also features Jimmy Cleveland on trombone and Leo Wright on flute, both American jazz players who help add some further complexities to the sound. Tracks include "Jazz Samba", "Favela", "O Morro", "Aqua De Beber", "Girl From Ipanema", and "Chega De Saudade". Packaged here in a beautiful two-tone Elenco cover – with a really classic look, and a different appearance than the Verve cover! LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing.)

✨✧ Antonio Carlos JobimCertain Mr Jobim ... LP
Warner, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $14.99
A wickedly wonderful album by Antonio Carlos Jobim – recorded in LA in the mid 60s, and a perfect meeting of styles that makes for one of his most compelling albums of the 60s! Jobim sings and plays over pillowy-soft arrangements by Claus Ogerman – lightly dancing numbers that weave strings and woodwinds into a wave of sound that dips, turns, and sometimes hits a surprisingly nice groove. Dick Hyman plays a bit of organ on the set – which we always love – and Dom Um Romao's working in the group somewhere on drums. Lyrics are in English, sung in a warm and fragile style by Jobim – and the album's got a great organy version of "Surfboard", plus "Zingaro", "Bonita", "Off-Key", and "Photograph". LP, Vinyl record album
(Green label stereo pressing. Cover has splitting on the top seam and spine.)

✨✧ Antonio Carlos JobimWonderful World Of Antonio Carlos Jobim ... LP
Warner, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The wonderful world of Antonio Carlos Jobim gets a whole lot bigger on this American release from the 60s – thanks to a collaboration with the great Nelson Riddle, the arranger whose work made so many of Frank Sinatra's albums so great! Riddle really understands the jazzy elements at the core of Jobim's tunes – and backs his guitar and vocals with a great 60s California take on the bossa nova – one that's never trying too hard to cross over, and which instead really respects the genius of Jobim at the core! Antonio sings on most tracks – some even with English lyrics that are really great – and titles include "Useless Landscape", "Bonita", "Surfboard", "She's A Carioca", "Aqua De Beber", and "Favela". LP, Vinyl record album
(Gray label pressing. Cover has a small peeled spot on one corner.)

✨✧ Antonio Carlos Jobim & Luiz BonfaBlack Orpheus – Original Soundtrack (Fontana pressing) ... LP
Fontana, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest soundtracks ever – a record that set a whole new standard for audio representation of a film! The mad music for the set was composed by Antonio Carlos Jobim, with lyrics by Vincius De Moraes – and performed by Luiz Bonfa on guitar – but despite such prime bossa pedigree, the whole thing's got a sound that goes way beyond the familiar – a crazy mix of batucada percussion, samba rhythms, bossa guitar, and loads of sound effects from the film – so much so that the first half of the record is almost a sound-for-sound replication of the first 20 minutes of the movie! The sound collage is amazing – an extremely unique approach to soundtrack representation, and one that's never been done so beautifully since. A truly breathtaking record, filled with mindblowing sounds – and an early example of the genius that would explode in 60s music in Brazil. Some key bossa classics are represented here in early versions – including "Felicidade", "O Nosso Amor", and "Manha De Carnaval" – but they're wrapped up in odd sounds and rhythms that really make them sound different!

✨✧ Antonio Carlos Jobim & Vinicius De MoraesBrasilia – Sinfonia Da Alvorada ... LP
Doxy, 1958. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Not the usual bossa nova you might expect from Antonio Carlos Jobim – but instead a larger, more ambitious piece of music – written for the opening of the city of Brasilia, to mark a whole new generation in Brazilian modernism! The music is often orchestral, and shows the wonderful ear for a score that Jobim would develop in later 60s arrangements – a style that hints at the bossa backings to come, but which also has some of the darker currents of the Black Orpheus soundtrack, although less percussion. Vinicius De Moraes adds in some great spoken bits – and titles include "O Planalto Deserto", "O Homem", "Coral", "A Chegada Dos Candangos", and "O Trabalho E A Construcao". LP, Vinyl record album

Victor Assis BrasilVictor Assis Brasil Toca Antonio Carlos Jobim ... LP
Quartin/Far Out (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... About February 24, 2017
A classic album of jazz interpretations of Jobim tracks, performed by saxophonist Victor Assis Brasil, conceived and produced by Roberto Quartin. Brasil's style is beautiful, with lots of haunting pinched notes, and long meandering explorations of Jobim compositions like "Bonita", "Wave", "Quartiniana", and "Dindi". The sound is incredible – with Dom Salvador on piano and organ, Helio Delmiro on guitar, and Edison Machado on drums. Brasil makes the tracks sound like no other Jobim material we've heard – and the sound is wonderfully open-ended. Fantastic! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Frank Sinatra & JobimFrancis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim ... LP
Reprise, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful little album that shows a whole new side of Sinatra! Frank's a bit late on the bossa game – but the record's a wonderfully gentle batch of bossa nova tunes, performed with musical and occasional vocal accompaniment by Jobim, and larger orchestral backings by Claus Ogerman. Far more than a gimmicky fake bossa album – this is a wonderful set of tracks that show that Sinatra could still hit a gentle ballad without going as over the top as he did on some of his other Reprise work. Jobim's talent is very respected – and the record is a true blending of musical styles, in a way that does justice to both artists equally. Titles include "Change Partners", "Dindi", "Meditation", "How Insensitive", and "I Concentrate On You". (Vocalists, Brazil) LP, Vinyl record album
(Tri-color stereo pressing. Cover has wear.)

Joao GilbertoO Amor O Sorriso E A Flor ... LP
Odeon/Doxy, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... About November 1, 2016 (delayed)
A wonderful album of Joao Gilberto's early bossa tracks from Brazil! The album's one of the first few that he ever recorded, and it's a masterpiece of understatement, recorded with arrangements by a young Antonio Carlos Jobim, and a soaring bossa sound that would soon make history. Tracks include "Discussao", "O Pato", "Outra Vez", "Doralice", and "Samba De Uma Nota So", and the cover's got a nice solarized image of him playing the guitar. Nice package, and a good batch of tracks that are hard to find on both vinyl and CD! LP, Vinyl record album

Sergio MendesSwinger From Rio ... LP
Atlantic, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $14.99
A rare early session from Sergio Mendes – one that was recorded in New York, during a pre-66 visit by his core trio – and augmented with guest horn work from Art Farmer, Phil Woods, and Hubert Laws! Antonio Carlos Jobim plays a bit of guitar on the album, and the set's a straighter set of jazz than you might expect – with Sergio grooving hard on piano, and throwing in some light bossa touches to tracks that include "Maria Moita", "Sambinha Bossa Nova", "The Dreamer", "Primavera", "Favela", and "Pau Brazil".

✨✧ Astrud GilbertoAstrud Gilberto Album ... LP
Verve (Germany), 1965. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of Astrud Gilberto's greatest albums of the 60s – a classic session produced for Verve by Creed Taylor, and featuring sweet gentle arrangements from Marty Paich, co-arranged with Antonio Carlos Jobim, who also plays guitar on the session next to the piano of Joao Donato! That's a mouthful of heavy-hitters, we know – but the result is a totally great session that has Astrud's light and gentle vocals drifting over some of the most magical bossa backings you'll ever hear. The whole thing's great, stuffed with bossa classics done in English – and titles include "Once I Loved", "Aqua De Beber", "O Morro", "Dindi", "Dreamer", and "Photograph". LP, Vinyl record album
