Antonio Carlos Jobim's Quiet Now: Nights of Quiet Stars is probably the most successful entry in this series of Polygram reissues, because the Brazilian composer's music is so blissfully suited to compilations that focus on the gentle, romantic side of jazz. Perhaps it's his sleepy, low-key voice, which makes Perry Como sound like Darby Crash, or the mellow casualness of his melodies, which mine a remarkable number of subtle emotional shadings out of a surprisingly limited number of guitar chords and the intangible Brazilian concept of saudade, a kind of happy-sadness-shading-into-sad happiness that's at the root of his music.
