Brian Bromberg In The Spirit of Jobim
Release Date: July 17, 2012
Label: Artistry Music
Taking another left turn to salute another 1960s seminal figure, In The Spirit of Jobim is comprised of five classics made famous by Brazilian legend Antonio Carlos Jobim - 'One Note Samba,' 'Wave,' 'Tristeifinado' ('Triste' and 'Desafinado'), 'Corcovado' and 'The Girl From Ipanema' - and seven Bromberg compositions emulating Jobim's style. Bromberg harnessed the Rising Sun Orchestra and surrounded himself with Brazilian musicians in an effort to foster authenticity. It's a stunning and romantic collection. 'I love Brazilian music and it's a blast to play live. The music is so positive and energetic. The songs are simple and melodic. It's just beautiful,' he gushes.
