Product Description


This quartet consists of cellist-arranger Jacques Morelenbaum, who played with Antonio Carlos Jobim on one of his last recordings, Passarim, before Jobim's death in 1994; his wife, vocalist Paula; Jobim's son, pianist Daniel; and his grandson Paulo on guitar. On this CD not only do they extend Jobim's legacy into the 21st century, but in this chamber format they highlight the softer side of Jobim's bossa nova blend of the Afro-Brazilian samba, jazz, and the French impressionist harmonies of Ravel and Debussy. Augmented by bass, drums, and percussion, the quartet delivers engaging and ethereal renditions of classic Jobim mid-'60s bossa nova standards including "Agua de Beber," "Ela e' Carioca," "Meditacão," and "Desafinado," sung by Paulo. The haunting "A Felicidade" and "Lamento no Morro" from Jobim's Academy Award-winning soundtrack to Black Orpheus are updated with taste and verve, especially in the balance between voice and instrumentation. Paulo Jobim's "Mantiqueira Range" is a direct descendant of his grandfather's harmonic genius, and it may prove to be an example of pleasant things to come from this stunning group. --Eugene Holley Jr.

Product Description

2000 release by a quartet of musicians who were closest to the late Brasilian master at the time of his death. Members includes Jobim's son, guitarist/vocalist Paulo Jobim, his grandson, pianist/vocalist Daniel Jobim, as well as cellist Jacques Morelenbaum and his wife, vocalist Paula Morelenbaum. This disc is a loving tribute to their lost father and friend and performed with the sort of passion that Jobim inspired in them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Treatment April 17 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Whether it's with Gismonti, Veloso or Sakamoto, Jaques Morelenbaum has always delivered profound performances. This is recording is no different. The only thing that makes it surpass his normal high standard is that these songs were gems from the master himself : Jobim.
A must have for those who want to know what great music is.

Anyone with the slightest interest in Brazilian music should own this CD. It's dreamy and intense at the same time... the music is so compelling that it demands your full attention, no matter how many times you listen to it. A rare achievement.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good bossa nova music Dec 17 2003
By Theresa
Format:Audio CD
I was fortunate to find this CD at Borders. It's awesome. If you're into old-school bossa nova, this will whet your appetites because the Quarteto stays true to A.C. Jobim's original flavor, but they make his music sound even more fresh. The vocalists are also good; their voices blend so well together. It's a good purchase!

5.0 out of 5 stars perfection is right Oct. 19 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I didn't know that I liked this kind of music but bought the CD after watching the DVD of the film Black Orpheus. I have been almost constantly listening to it since then. The songs are lovely; the musicianship is spirited but flawless. There are so many moments of extreme elegance and charm that listening to it becomes an almost visceral experience. It doesn't matter that I can't understand the lyrics, the feeling in the music easily transcends language. Not a molecule of sound has been misplaced.

i love Jobim's music and this CD is most excellent in its treatment of these great standards...i have heard Desafinado done by many many artists but in my opinion this is the best version ever recorded...this quartet are just so tight in their musical movements that it is a great treat to listen to their choices from a world-class songbook. i appreciate the quiet beauty of their voices....which have a whisper quality..i read the proceeding reviews and bought this CD and it is so fantastic..do yourself a favor and get this for your spirit

5.0 out of 5 stars Jobim Morelenbaum Nov. 30 2002
Format:Audio CD
Since A.C.J. ultimately death some years ago, there have been countless records on the market playing tribute to Brazil`s most popular composer, pianist and singer of all times. His numerous recordings from the man who wrote "THE GIRL FROM IPANEMA" have made music history.
But now comes a production called "QUARTETO JOBIM-MORELENBAUM". And this is not just another tribute to the late Jobin. It is simply the best recording ever, because it even sounds better than any other the maestro ever did !
Jaques Morelenbaum, one of the most gifted cellist in the world has often played with Jobin, but also with many other brasilian artists, such as Caetano Veloso. Together with Jobim`s sons, Daniel and Paulo and his wife Paula Morelenbaum he created a cd containing 13 all time greats by Jobim. I am sure Tom Jobim would have loved the outcome of this CD, although for reasons unknown one song has been omitted, wich actually started his fame "THE GIRL FROM IPANEMA".

5.0 out of 5 stars Sheer perfection Nov. 30 2002
Format:Audio CD
A sweet tribute to Antonio Carlos Jobim which features his son, grandson, and former cellist and bandleader Jaqcues Morelenbaum, as well as Paula Morelenbaum, who serves as the group's chanteuse, trading vocal duties with the Jobim lads. Spanning the breadth of Jobim's career, these songs are all bossa nova standards, but pleasantly and flawlessly rendered... Morelenbaum -- one of the most well-rounded musicians imaginable -- perfectly captures the elegance and concise beauty of Jobim's work. This is a beautiful, solid record, and will certainly grow on you with every listen. (By the way, if you have the chance to see this ensemble perform, don't hesitate -- they are even more stunning and sublime live!)

I picked up this CD while I was in Brazil last year, and I fell in love! I bought one for each of my sisters (3), one for my parents, and one for a singer I work with. I never tire of this CD, it is gorgeous.
