iTunes Review

One of the most famous and influential artists in Latin jazz, Rio-born Antonio Carlos Jobim enjoyed a lengthy career that spanned the course of four decades and countless excellent records. After the '60s ended and bossa nova's crossover appeal was waning, he connected with Creed Taylor's new CTI label and recorded Stone Flower, one of his most beloved albums. Engineered by Rudy Van Gelder, arranged by fellow Brazilian Eumir Deodato, and featuring a team of crack session players (Ron Carter, Hubert Laws, Airto, and Urbie Green, to name a few), it was mellower and more sensual than some of his earlier work, both sophisticated and simple in its melodies, tones, and production. Understated horn lines, tinkling piano riffs, breezy guitar parts, and super rhythmic percussion are the order of the day here, culminating in an instantly likeable mix that has been compared to Miles' classic Kind of Blue. Everything on here is great, check out "Tereza My Love," "Choro," "Andorinha," and "Brazil (Alternate Take)."

Customer Reviews

I LOVE this album

If I needed one album on a desert island it would be this one. No matter how many times I hear it, I still love it the same if not more.

Antonio

One of the greatest artists of the last century....Antonio was a master of rhythm and style His recordings will live forever...

How True Ron D!

Jobin transended music and it's creativity. Charlie Byrd said that "His music was too sophisticated for American Audiences".

We know that was not true back in the 60-70's but with todays overproduced crap it rings true with todays gerneration and lack of creativity.

Jobin was a genius, Ck out the Sinatra #1, a true classic.

Biography

Born: January 25, 1927 in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil

Genre: Brazilian

Years Active: '50s, '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s

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, Jobim's songs gave jazz musicians in the 1960s a quiet, strikingly original alternative...
