Antonio Brasileiro is an American's Treasure Find of Brazil
Alpha Centauri | Washington, DC | 01/27/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Antonio Brasileiro is a wonderful, essential collection of diverse sounds. This album is certainly directed more towards an American audience than other releases with Jobim. It's a very sultry, light, blissful collection of tunes. "So Danco Samba" is very reminiscent of earlier Tom Jobim releases with a new twist that makes it fun and adorable. Background vocals are emphasized more on this ablum than other Jobim albums. In general the album is light, relaxing, happy, and optimistic. Ex-Policer, Sting, makes a guest appearance on "How Insensitive (Insensatez)." Sting does a nice job, but I think he's a bit out of place on the album. There are some tunes on the album which have more of a general jazz sound than what I think of as "Bossa Nova." For example, "Blue Train." The tune "Samba de Maria Luiza" is adorable and includes a guest appearance by a little girl, which I believe is Jobim's daughter. The album cover includes beautiful photographs of wildlife and landscape scenes of Brazil."
Wonderful stuff!

"This album is full of Jobim's best. My favorite song is "Querida", in which a deceptively sunny, gentle melody flows under heartbreaking lyrics. I'm just learning Portuguese, and I'm amazed at the contrast between so many of Jobim's smooth, lovely melodies and the depth of the feelings that the words reveal. "Blue Train" is drenched in sun. Jobim sings two songs with his daughter, and Sting shows up on "How insensitive", singing it very nicely in English.Every time I listen to this CD, I hear something new. He is the best."

"This is the most memorable and beautiful album recorded by Jobim and I am delighted that he left this lovely legacy which makes up for the horrible collaborative last recording that featured a cast if thousands (among them, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Gal Costa, Jon Hendricks, etc. plus Jobim's voice demonstrates his ill health) and left this listener cold and empty. Several of the homespun reviewers identified the little girl, Maria Luiza, as his daughter. She is, I believe, his grandchild and daughter to either Paulo or Daniel Jobim. This is something that needs to be properly addressed because there are no liner notes nor translations to the lyrics.I would give this album ten (10) stars if it were possible."
