Packaged in a special box set to celebrate Jobim's artistry as well as the 50th anniversary of the bossa nova, this set includes five original albums: Caymmi Visita Tom, Matita Perê (aka Jobim), Elis & Tom, Edu & Tom/Tom & Edu, Garota de Ipanema - Original Soundtrack …plus 3 new compilation albums entitled "Tom Feminino" (recordings by female singers) and "Tom Masculino" (recordings by male singers and musicians) - as well as "Tom Pra Dois" (duos).
This five-LP box set (which has been reissued on CD) contains nearly all of Stan Getz's classic bossa nova sessions, five wonderful yet diverse LPs (Jazz Samba, Big Band Bossa Nova, Jazz Samba Encore, Stan Getz/Laurindo Almedia, and Getz/Gilberto). The cool-toned tenor is heard on his groundbreaking collaboration with guitarist Charlie Byrd (which resulted in the best-selling "Desafinado"), is showcased with a big band arranged by Gary McFarland (introducing "No More Blues" and "One Note Samba"), stars in recordings with guitarists Laurindo Almeida and Luiz Bonfa, and is heard at the famous meeting with composer/pianist Antonio Carlos Jobim, guitarist João Gilberto, and singer Astrud Gilberto, which resulted in the major hit "The Girl From Ipanema." This essential set finishes off with three previously unissued performances from a 1964 Carnegie Hall Concert, concluding with a remake of "The Girl From Ipanema." These recordings stand as proof that it is possible for good music to sell.
Sylvia Telles was the first female bossa nova singer; with Dolores Duran and Maysa, the most influential of her generation. She was the finest interpreter of the songs of one of the greatest songwriters of the twentieth century, the Brazilian master, Antonio Carlos Jobim, and she was his favourite vocalist.
Voici le premier DVD de La Leçon de Jazz d'Antoine Hervé, consacré à Antonio Carlos Jobim. Antonio Carlos Jobim est considéré à travers le monde comme l’un des pères de la Bossa Nova. L’originalité rythmique et la richesse harmonique de ses compositions ont immédiatement influencés les improvisateurs du jazz. Ses sources d’inspiration proviennent de compositeurs tels que Frédéric Chopin, Claude Debussy ou encore Bill Evans. Pour ce premier DVD La Leçon de Jazz, Antoine Hervé a demandé au chanteur Rolando Faria, ex « Les Étoiles », carioca de naissance, de venir mettre à contribution son immense talent musical et poétique. Ensemble, ils vont nous raconter la fabuleuse histoire de la Bossa Nova. Bienvenue dans l’âge d’or du Rio des années cinquante!
Direct from Brazil comes this deeply appreciative musical tribute to Antonio Carlos Jobim (1927-1994), co-founder and leading composer of the Bossa Nova.
With over four hundred songs to his credit, Jobim virtually single-handedly brought the Bossa Nova to the world, where it became a staple ingredient in the jazz cookbook. Jobim's new sound adapted the rhythmic variety and percussive excitement of the samba to the intimacy of syncopated guitar, while echoing the melodies and harmonies of cool jazz.
