The Music Of - Antonio Carlos Jobim

The Music Of
Released on 22/02/10. The Music of Antonio Carlos Jobim combines rare Brazilian recordings by the pioneers of bossa nova to document the vital first year of the genre. Beginning with João Gilberto's Desafinado, that introduced the world to this exciting new style, so simple, yet so shockingly sensual. In addition to Gilberto, the programme comprises six absolutely essential cuts from Silvia Telles, perhaps the finest interpreter of Jobim's compositions and important contributions from the virtuoso guitarists Luiz Bonfa and Bola Sete, the organist Walter Wanderley and amongst others the Brazilian Sinatra, Dick Farney. We have also included the Jobim compositions from the film Orfeu Negro (Black Orpheus), the success of which did so much to bring bossa nova to world attention, including a historic recording of A Felicidade by the star of the movie, Marpessa Dawn. It is a musical snapshot of Rio de Janeiro in 1959.
