CD Jobim Forever, by James Pasinski – JP’s Music Blog

Brazilian pianist/composer Antonio Adolfo has created a new album titled "Jobim Forever," dedicated to one of the most influential jazz composers to ever come from Brazil, Antonio Carlos Jobim. His 1964 album "Getz/Gilberto" single-handedly introduced the world to Bossa Nova music and gave us one of the best jazz tunes of all time, "The Girl From Ipanema." On this new release, Antonio Adolfo has taken nine of his favorite Jobim tunes and added his own spice to the songs, in order to give them a different approach. He begins with "The Girl From Ipanema," which very loosely follows the original, as Adolfo still keeps the Bossa Nova rhythm, but adds a bit more horns and piano to the mix. The graceful touch of "Wave" is highlighted by the guitar work of Lula Galvao, before the energy picks back up with the swinging rhythm of "A Felicidade." Antonio Adolfo keeps the melody flowing with his piano work on "Inutil Paisagem" and "Amparo/Por Toda A Minha Vida," before finishing his new album with the wonderful enlightenment of the album closer "Estrada Do Sol."
