NEW RELEASE - 12th JUNE 2014 CCD 71807 THE MAGIC OF JOBIM : THE ENCHANTING MELODIES OF ANTONIO CARLOS JOBIM - Wednesday 30 April, 2014
The allure of Brazil is very much in focus for Football’s World Cup this year starting on June 12th. With this in mind,nothing better thanshowcasing the captivating music of this great country.
The haunting songs of Brazil’s greatest composer are the focus of this impressive gathering of performers.Featured here are Jobim classics such as Desafinado, Dindi,The Girl from Ipanema, Insensatez,So Danca Samba,Dreamer and many others. These classic melodies adapt well to the contemporary jazzy idiom of today and the lilting qualities of the music facilitate interpretations of the music which are each different in their own way,with the whole creating a homogenous palate of colors and tonal shadings.The interpretations range from the sensitive vocals of Stacey Kent and Monica Vasconcelos to the beautiful stylings of guitarist Nate Najar ,the mellow sax of Jim Tomlinson and innovative treatments by pianists Shirley Scott,Hector Martignon and the Brazilian Gilson.
This is a seriously good listen for what will be a seriously good summer !!
