Symphonic Jobim

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Antonio Carlos Jobim as a symphonic composer? Jobim, arguably the finest songwriter of the 1960s and the founder of bossa nova, was classically trained and wrote some pieces along the way for a string orchestra. In addition to his arrangements, his compositions were arranged for an orchestra by the likes of Claus Ogerman, Nelson Riddle, Eumir Deodato, Dori Caymmi, Paulo Jobim, and Mario Adnet for this project. The double CD does not have much bossa nova and, although some of the melodies are familiar, others are very obscure and in two cases were previously unrecorded.

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Antonio Carlos Jobim as a symphonic composer? Jobim, arguably the finest songwriter of the 1960s and the founder of bossa nova, was classically trained and wrote some pieces along the way for a string orchestra. In addition to his arrangements, his compositions were arranged for an orchestra by the likes of Claus Ogerman, Nelson Riddle, Eumir Deodato, Dori Caymmi, Paulo Jobim, and Mario Adnet for this project. The double CD does not have much bossa nova and, although some of the melodies are familiar, others are very obscure and in two cases were previously unrecorded. The symphony orchestra is augmented by several guests along the way, most notably a vocal section on some pieces. Milton Nascimento has a pair of guest vocals. The first four numbers are a suite from 1961 called "Brasilia, Sinfonia da Alvorada" and selections six through eight are from 1956 and titled "Orfeu da Conceicao." Fans of the music of Jobim as heard in its usual intimate setting may find this music of lesser interest although listeners coming to the set from the classical field will probably be more intrigued. Overall this live program is a well-meaning and intriguing project, but it falls short of being essential and is rather sleepy in spots.
