Biography

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
This album is simply amazing! In just 8 tracks Jobim (with help from his son) creates a whole new world of Bossa Nova. The opening track is by far the best. It builds and builds into a haunting anthem of a song. Every song here has its own merits though and each track is very different from the last. All songs transport you to somewhere far away - somewhere strange and interesting. This is a real achievement for Jobim as Bossa Nova was becoming far too formulaic, but with this album I think he breaks new ground.

If you like Jobim, BUY THIS! An incredible orchestral journey through Brazil, with nods to Villa Lobos. Stunning.

The wonderful Jobim is well recorded on this C D of some of his more unusual pieces and classical approach.

. 17 Jan. 2000
By Gregory G Nipper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
After reading the customer reviews of this disc, I feel compelled to chime in. This is a fine album, but it's not jazz, doesn't purport to be jazz, and thus shouldn't be criticized for not being jazzy enough. It was conceived by Carlos Jobim as a tribute to one of the greatest Brazilian composers of all time, Heitor Villa-Lobos. The project is executed with great feeling and beauty. Anyone who would call this "schmaltz" is unable or unwilling to approach Carlos Jobim as a serious composer and instead treats his work as if it were not something of real value but only of novelty value to be played as background music for a dinner party, a seduction, or a quiet evening at home. I can recommend this album very highly to those who are interested in actually listening to some wonderful pieces of music in the Brazilian tradition.

Jobim's underestimated masterpiece 13 Feb. 2009
By Alex B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In my opinion, this is Jobim's masterpiece and a largely underestimated album. It is much more sophisticated than his albums usually identified with bossa nova, recorded in the early 60's. It reveals a composer that goes well beyond catchy melodies such as The Girl from Ipanema. I particularly love the instrumental tracks (Saudade do Brasil stands out), but I also find Lígia and Correnteza great songs. Special attention must be paid to Claus Ogerman's arrangements. In short, I think this album is mandatory for those interested in Brazilian music in general and Jobim's legacy in particular.

sublime 25 Dec. 2002
By Jack - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
For those discovering Jobim and his bossa nova sound, Urubu will come as a surprise: it's neither bossa nor jazz, but a stunning confluence of both, resulting in a heavily-orchestrated type of 'easy listening' that is anything but. Jobim's recognised compositional idiosyncrasies and Claus Ogerman's lush arrangements keep pulling the music (and the listener) away from the deadness of muzak and into an extraordinary soundscape of traditional instruments and Brazilian-style orchestration. A note also has to be made here about the warm, analogue-sounding transfer to cd, which is crystal clear yet light as meringue. If you like the idea of music that slips down like soft ice cream on a hot day, yet doesn't leave any sickly aftertaste, then get this album!!!

MAGNIFICENT!!! 2 Feb. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Perhaps his most lyrical, beautiful and lasting work. Truly the work of a master artist/craftsman in his prime. The orchestrations and jobim's melancholy vocals make this a must have for ANY music lover.

Excellent later Jobim release...more Impressionism than Bossa Nova 26 Aug. 2009
By Matthew Sutton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Urubu is very, very good. On this Jobim, already well established as a song writer, moved into composition for orchestral arrangements. That said, its not coincidentally a tribute to compatriot Heitor Villa-Lobos, an early twentieth century composer influenced by vernacular musical traditions as well as a concept album embracing the legends and folklore of his native Brazil.

All the tasteful restraint, superb arrangements, and subtle sense of melodicism associated with Jobim are showcased wonderfully here. If anything this is an excellent example of his maturation as an artist...the refinement he brought to the samba of Dorival Caymmi when looked at through a jazz-trained lens is here distilled further into the purely symphonic. Lots of lush strings and indigenous Brazilian instrumentation, an aversion to brass, and a delicate, Impressionistic, sensibility. This isn't, and never was intended to be, a jazz album. If you're looking for something that sounds like Stan Getz, this isn't it. If anything it might best be listened to as a soundtrack to a nonexistent movie.

If you're a fan of Wave, Stone Flower, and enjoy his distinctive voice and phrasing (yeah, he sings a great deal here)--and also like Debussy or Ravel--chances are you'll really like this.
