Album Review

Pieced together from various albums to showcase what a remarkably consistent songwriter and performer Antonio Carlos Jobim was, Hip-O's 20th Century Masters - The Best of Antonio Carlos Jobim opens with two of Jobim's compositions from Stan Getz and João Gilberto's quintessential bossa nova record, Getz/Gilberto, before threading through his own career. With over 12 tracks, many of Jobim's defining songs are covered, from "The Girl from Ipanema" (the song that kick-started the careers of both Jobim and Astrud Gilberto, while also bringing bossa nova to popular consciousness) to "Corcovado (Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars)," a song proving that Jobim's talent only grew in emotional depth and complexity over ten years of being in the public eye. Though two-thirds of this collection focuses, rightly so, on his material from the early to mid-'60s, four tracks glimpse at his career in the 1970s and '80s as proof that Jobim's high standards, both as a songwriter and producer, were never forsaken. 20th Century Masters - The Best of Antonio Carlos Jobim proves an excellent set for those casually interested in exploring Jobim's work and the shaping of bossa nova.

Put on this song, sit back, and wait for your soul to be awoken by the gentle voice of Antonio Carlos Jobim. Everytime I hear this song, the world stops, I smile, then life begins again in 5:25. For those 5 minutes and 24 seconds I forget about everything except wondering who is The Girl from Ipanema.

It has been said that Antonio Carlos Brasileiro de Almeida Jobim was the George Gershwin of Brazil, and there is a solid ring of truth in that, for both contributed large bodies of songs to the jazz repertoire, both expanded their reach into the concert hall, and both tend to symbolize their countries in the eyes of the rest of the world. With their gracefully urbane, sensuously aching melodies and harmonies,...
