Album Review

After saluting Antonio Carlos Jobim's lesser-known songs on The Other Side of Jobim, Ana Caram turned to his more famous work with equally splendid results on Bossa Nova. Jobim had recently died when she recorded the CD in January 1995, and the singer/guitarist felt that another tribute was in order. While Other Side purposely avoided standards, Bossa Nova is full of them. Anyone with even a casual knowledge of Brazilian pop-jazz and the bossa nova will be familiar with such standards as "The Girl From Ipanema," "Agua de Beber" and "Chega de Saudade." But while Caram's choices may be obvious, her treatment of them isn't. From "O Pato" to "Double Rainbow," everything on Bossa Nova sounds personal and individualistic rather than cliched.

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s

The song tradition of Brazil is fused with American cool jazz by sultry vocalist Ana Caram. With her light, sensual vocals set to lush arrangements, Caram has brought a new sensibility to the bossa nova. Having established herself as a promising newcomer, Caram was encouraged by Antonio Carlos Jobim to go to New York in the late '80s. The move provided the key to Caram's success. Performing with jazz saxophonist Paquito D'Rivera at the JVC Jazz Festival, she caught the ear of an executive of the...
