Description

Antonio Carlos Jobim Stone Flower on 180g Import LP from Speakers Corner

One of the great popular music composers of the 20th Century, Antonio Carlos Jobim emerged from Brazil's burgeoning bossa nova movement of the early-1960s. The quietly powerful Stone Flower, recorded in 1970 at Rudy Van Gelder's studio in New Jersey and produced by Creed Taylor, contains nine graceful compositions including the jazz waltz "Children's Games," the sublime "Choro," the sophisticated "Andorinha," and the dramatic title track. 

With flawless arrangements from fellow Brazilian Eumir Deodat, the silky smooth set features Jobim on piano, acoustic guitar, and, occasionally his trademark husky, half-whispered vocals with further accompaniment from Joe Farrell (soprano saxophone), Urbie Green (trombone), Ron Carter (double bass), João Palma (drums), Harry Loofosky (violin) and Airto Moreira and Everaldo Ferreira (percussion). 

"Jobim has been described as the Gershwin of Brazilian music, which is an apt title for a man who contributed so many original songs to the jazz repertoire, adding a few standards along the way...No one could write bossa nova tunes as well as Jobim, and the songs on Stone Flower easily rank with his best work. Stone Flower is a fantastic record of quiet intensity." - David Rickert, All About Jazz
