Even if they can’t name him right away as the composer, just about everybody knows some of the bossa nova music of Antonio Carlos Brasileiro de Almeida Jobim. His dozens of beautiful melodies have become part of the standard song repertoire throughout the world.

Tom Jobim, as he was known familiarly, was born in l927 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and died in l994. As he liked to tell ... Read more in Amazon's Antonio Carlos Jobim Store

Format: Audio CD
In Brazil, Musica Popular Brasileira (MPB) is considered an art form in its own right, both an academic subject to be taught and studied, and a uniting voice (alongside football) of an otherwise divided people. Outside Brazil, unfortunately, Brazilian pop music just means "The girl from Ipanema" and lambada.
This 3 CD collection, produced for a US audience, aims to put that right. It showcases Tom Jobim - a giant of MPB and a co-writer of "Girl from Ipanema". The CDs are stylishly presented in a 60-page ringbound card booklet containing a handful of photos, interviews and the odd translated lyric. (In fact, given the available space here, it's disappointing that so few lyrics are presented.) It may seem an eccentric choice to opt for your covershot a photo of the star in nappies at the age of six months, but it's in keeping with a packaging that claims to be definitive - Jobim from start to finish.
Well, it's eclectic rather than comprehensive, but there's enough well-chosen gold here to make this an always enjoyable and occasionally astonishing anthology. CD one is a compilation of classic Jobim tracks. In a marketplace in which a few such compilations are knocking about, this one hits most of the expected high spots and would be something of a class leader in its own right. CD two is the b-side of the bunch, a collection of instrumentals rehashed from three LPs - the seminal "Tide" and "Wave" and the oddly brash early work "The composer of Desafinado plays".
But with CD three the collection somes closest to fulfilling the promise of its packaging. Just five songs are represented on its 17 tracks - in English, Portuguese, bilingual and instrumental versions.

An Experience Unto Itself... 27 Jun. 1999
By R. Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
one of those rare, stream-of-consciousness listening experiences that takes you to that quiet place inside yourself. The playful, provocative, effortless romance of Jobim makes this a must-have for your collection. My first experience with it was on a 3 and 1/2 hour road trip, driving in the rain alone. The time seemed to pass in minutes. Having arrived at my destination, I was tempted to turn around and go back, just to extend the moment. The booklet, the interviews, even the unique wrappers around each CD were obviously done by someone in love with the man and his music. This box set wasn't created to make money but to honor the life-work of a master. Please don't let the price slow you down. This collection is extraordinary in every way.

WORTH EVERY PENNY. 26 Sept. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Simply beautiful, brilliant music. If the idea of spending 40 or 50 dollars for this set puts you off, please don't let it. The more Jobim, the better, and the 3 CDs is nowhere near exhausting or overkill. Even the last CD, which has multiple versions of his most famous songs, is varied enough that you don't even notice. If you've never owned a Jobim record or even if you've only heard of him, this is really the very best way to start, even better than just a single Lp. After getting this, you'll only want more; as well as more music from Stan Getz, Joao Gilberto, Astrud Gilberto and Elis Regenta as well.

Antonio Carlos Brasileiro de Almeida Jobim - romantic Master 22 Aug. 2003
By "douglasnegley" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This compilation and the care with which it was put together by Oscar Castro-Neves, himself one of the finest Bossa Nova/Samba masters alive, is a joy. The interviews and photographs, provided by Creed Taylor, Gene Lees, and Ana Lentra Jobim are delightful, as is the spiral-bound booklet which is presented in Brazilian motif. In a 3 CD compilation of an entire career such as this, there are bound to be tracks that not everyone likes. I have read where some listeners are put off by the way in which Castro-Neves presents tracks of the same song over different periods and artists in a 'back-to-back(-to-back') segue - indeed, a few of the Astrud Gilberto tracks sound to me like chalk on a blackboard coming on the heels of such a master singer as Elis Regina - however, I find the contrast to be enlightening as well as entertaining. I am also willing to bet that even the greatest lovers of Jobim find a moment or two on this compilation which they have not yet heard, or have perhaps forgotten..and it will be worth the price of admission, which I grant may be a bit steep for some. The "Aguas de Marco" out-takes at the conclusion of Disc 3 are, along with the gorgeous booklet and sleeves, in my opinion, worth the price of the 3 CD package. You will be taken on a Jobim ride throughout: from the Getz/Gilberto session all the way up until Jobim, alone with Pat Matheny, live. Even if you only find two-thirds of the tracks to your liking, this is a loving tribute to a musical genious who certainly deserves every bit of it.

A great deal for such great music 24 July 2001
By Karen Robinson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Bossa nova is probably one of the most amazing musical genres out there. It is timeless and priceless (so don't care about the big price tag on this cd) because it will continue to give you more and more pleasure. This 3 disc "book" set serves up quite a nice portion of classic Jobim songs sung by himself along with his collaborators such as Joao Gilberto, Astrud Gilberto, and Elis Regina and Stan Getz on sax. Disc 1 is probably the most listenable in one sitting since there are 23 different beautiful songs. Disc 2 is good to put on when you're doing some cleaning. Disc 3 is great because you get to see how different singers add different elements to the same song. Whether you're a new or old fan of bossa nova, you need to add this to your collection.

A standout in every possible way 27 May 2000
By M. H. Bayliss - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Not only is this the best collection of Jobim's endlessly gratifying music, it's one of the most beautiful CD packages ever put together. In an age where most CD's are hastily thrown into poorly designed cases, this is truly a collector's item -- each CD paper sleeve is cut into fish and other shapes for their respective CD's. The liner notes are great, you'll find out everything about Jobim's recording and life -- they just don't make them like this anymore. And did I mention that the music is positively mind-altering? Order this immediately, wait for a rainy day, sit down on your coach and spin all three CD's. Time will fly by and you will emerge purified.
