Hello, good evening! I’m trying to make this post since Saturday night. And I’m really sorry about this; I had to skip a really important celebration yesterday, which was Antonio Carlos Jobim, 82 years birthday. Additionally, I missed some announcements of friends that were celebrating Antonio Carlos Jobim yesterday, such as the great work made by Jassvan in New York, running a Marathon with Jobim’s music and special guests on WKCR-89.9FM, also at www.wkcr.org. I’m really sad to miss this announcement and also missing the broadcast tribute itself. Jassvan always speaks about Loronix on his radio show and I urge Loronix’s community to reach the radio website and listen to Jassvan show, broadcasted every Sunday at midnight.
The show must go on, and I would like to upgrade this really nice and inexplicable underrated album, a Bossa Nova classic recorded in 1976 by Stan Getz, featuring João Gilberto and with the participation of Miucha. Let’s see.
This is Stan Getz – The Best of Two Worlds, featuring Joao Gilberto (1976), for Columbia. There is something very unique about this album, which is the participation of Antonio Carlos Jobim. He wrote English lyrics to his compositions especially for this occasion. This cover is also a must and probably assembled by Columbia, since Joao Gilberto appears with the same photo with different situation in the front and back cover. This upgrade includes a new vinyl transfer with FLAC files, new cover scans and also personnel listing, with some nice surprises. Tracks include:
(voice, violao, percussion)
Billy Hart, Grady Tate, Ray Armando, Rubens Bassini
Clint Houston, Steve Swallow
Oscar Castro Neves
01 – Double Rainbow (Tom Jobim / G. Lees)
02 – Águas de Março (Tom Jobim)
03 – Ligia (Tom Jobim)
04 – Falsa Baiana (Geraldo Pereira)
05 – Retrato Em Branco e Preto (Picture In Black And White) (Tom Jobim / Chico Buarque)
