Mastered from the Original Analog Master Tapes by Bernie Grundman & Pressed on 180g Vinyl at Pallas in Germany
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/Everaldo Ferreira (percussion).
