A Twist of Jobim [Bonus Track]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
The debut release from the I.E. label (which is connected with Polygram) is an unusual multi-artist tribute to the music of Antonio Carlos Jobim. Some of his tunes are made funky (but in a melodic and tasteful way), while others become quiet (but still passionate) ballads. The treatments are all jazz-oriented, and there is plenty of solo space for the likes of guitarist Lee Ritenour (in one of his finest jazz efforts), pianists Dave Grusin and Alan Pasqua, altoist Eric Marienthal, bassist Christian McBride, and tenor saxophonist Ernie Watts.

Nearly every song holds one's interest, the melodies are celebrated, and the fresh interpretations contain more than their share of surprises. [The CD was also released with a bonus track.]

    Wonderfully under

    The pleasure of listening to this project steems from the lack of "busyness" or the under playing and singing. It is a joyful blend of arranging, musicianship and vocal stylings that takes you to an slightly breezy afternoon in Brazil's countryside or urban enclaves and allows you to experience the spirit of Jobim.

    Wonderful Twist of Samba!

    This is REALLY a great listen, particularly for today's listener who is easing into the bossa nova sound and wants a little modern twist. Very cosmo and romantic..
