Album Review

Antonio Carlos Jobim had paved the way, years earlier, for wrapping Brazilian music in lush horns and strings, but for Zimbo Trio, to record this type of LP was a leap of faith. Faith that such a move would not be looked at as overtly commercial — especially from such a group of serious musicians as Zimbo — and also, of course, faith that the move would work from a musical standpoint. During the mid-'60s, Zimbo Trio had been such a lean group — able to swing rapturously but then stop immediately and move in a new direction — that playing over a set of string-laden songs could have become the musical equivalent of trying to run through a waist-deep stream. While Decisão certainly doesn't move like their earlier recordings, it is a success, and best of all, it's a success on their own terms. The arrangements come from the group themselves, and the conductor Cyro Pereira never slows down the tempo — except when the trio want it slowed. Horns take a larger role than strings, allowing swells and peaks with just as much energy as Zimbo Trio could muster by themselves.
