Antonio Carlos Jobim
Live At Minas
DRG/Jobim Biscoito Fino

By Michael Stone

Published April 24, 2007

Composer, pianist and singer Antonio Carlos “Tom” Jobim (1927-1994) combined Brazilian popular forms with European classical and West Coast cool jazz influences, winning ardent followings at home and overseas. Live At Minas finds the artist performing solo at the keyboard (for the first time in 20 years) before an adoring audience. Speaking with the crowd, Jobim reflected upon his collaborations with some of Brazil’s best-known artists, providing fascinating anecdotes about his work and the remarkable music he created with luminaries like Newton Mendonça, Dolores Duran, Aloysio de Oliveira, Chico Buarque and Vinicius de Moraes. Grieving over the recent death of longtime friend and collaborator de Moraes (the two penned the score to Black Orpheus, among many other gems), Jobim conjured up a once-in-a-lifetime recital, essaying classics like “Desafinado,” “One Note Samba,” “Eu Sei Que Vou Te Amar,” “Chega de Saudade” and “The Girl from Ipanema.” Beginning to end its a poignant, indeed extraordinary performance.
