Format: Audio CD
An collection of songs by brazil's finest songwriter/composer -the late Antonio Carlos Jobim. Recorded at his house, at his very piano by this exquisite vocal, cello, piano trio. (Paula Morelenbaum -voice, Jacques Morelenbaum -cello, and on piano -Ryuichi Sakamoto.)
One of the most beautiful album's i have ever heard. Played with such warmth, grace and love. Full of space, sunshine, starlight and saudade -the sweetest longing. It is an album to fall in love by, to dream of love to, to comfort lost love. First thing on a crisp spring morning, late in the peaty autumn night. The melodies and atmosphere linger in the mind throughout the day, forever moving and full of reverie.
Could be classed as classical, brazilian or jazz, and while it is a fine example of each genre, it transcends all three and exists in that rarest of the realms -music that is simply sublime. Play it to people you love. Play it alone and dream...

Format: Audio CD
My wife Claudia introduced me to this breathtaking record. She listened to Morelenbaum/Sakamoto at a concert in Stockholm, and told me it was the best Jobim interpretation she had ever heard. After listening to Casa, I can only agree with her and the eloquent reviewers "Advanced Terry" and "jonsadler3": This is one of the greatest ever recordings of Jobim's work - and possibly the most beautiful interpretation to date.

I would go even further: If I were to choose 10 records of all times, regardless of musical genre, this would be one of them.

If there is a music heaven, Tom Jobim surely must be placed there, right beside Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Miles Davis and John Lennon. I guess Jobim smiles and weeps for joy and praises the Lord that his most sublime compositions finally were recorded by this trio in his own house, all for the blessing of those of us who gravitate towards art that conveys wistfulness and sadness and immortalised beauty.

Like the art of Goethe, Thomas Mann and William Shakespeare.

This is one of the greatest ever recordings of Jobim's work - and possibly the most beautiful interpretation to date. It exudes space and light. One can simply close ones eyes and be beside Jobim's pool on a bright, cloudless day while a light breeze gently sways the palm trees overlooking Rio.

Jobim Is Felt.... Throughout. 31 Aug. 2001
By R. Max Totten - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The 16 Tracks featured on this CD are a lovely and touching tribute to the swaying memories of the timeless classics of Antonio Carlos Jobim. The trio consists of Ryuichi Sakamoto on piano, Jacques Morelenbaum on cello and Paula Morelenbaum on vocals with a variety of other musicians including Paulo Jobim on Violao and a duet with vocalist Ed Motta. The tender approach of Mr. Sakamoto's piano is felt like a light ocean spray shifting between the organic sounds of Mr. Morelenbaum's cello and the warm and sensuous vocals of his wife Paula, sends ones senses aflame with melodic passion and a beautiful intimacy is felt.

All renditions were recorded at the home of Jobim's which adds to the spirit of this beautiful excursion.

superb bossa nova 17 July 2002
By Eric C. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you enjoyed the Quarteto Jobim-Morelenbaum debut album -- sophisticated yet sparse playing genius boss nova classics -- you might like this even more. It hardly seems possible, but Paula Morlenbaum's voice is even better here because she frees herself up and cuts loose -- just as she can in concert.
If you're a Sakamoto fan, this dose of ultra-authentic bossa nova might not be your usual fare. And note the guitar work of Luiz Brasil, who has been guitarist, arranger, and/or record producer for many great projects, including Caetano Veloso's Livro and Cassia Eller's MTV Acustico.
And of course the other musical presence here is Tom Jobim himself, through his compositions, inspiration, and the ghost in his casa.

A wonderful birthday present. 23 Sept. 2002
By M. Lapka - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
My sister sent me Morelenbaum & Sakamoto's "Casa" CD, and I was entranced. As an incurable romantic, and a long, long fan of Brazilian music in general, and Jobim in particular, I was transported back to the joy of 1st having heard Stan Getz and Antonio Carlos Jobim. From that moment on I was hooked. The trio of Jaques and Paula Morelenbaum, and Ryuichi Sakamoto, are as complimentary, and dreamy and romantic as Getz, Gilberto and Jobim were 30 years ago. I'd call "Casa" perfect, if it weren't for the final track. It just doesn't fit with the others. But, the rest is...magic.
