"Jobim loves people, and gets excited about all kinds of things, I'm sure there's certain pieces by Debussy and Ravel that made Jobim red in the face because they are so beautiful.
How does an Artist manage to be influenced and still make a work of art their own?
Love and desire.
Symphonic Jobim strikes me as being very Nationalistic, a sort of spiritual road map to the heart of the World, and what better way to celebrate one's roots by drawing on the panorama of Rio and Brazil, or, Brasil.
Frank Loyd Wright once said, Architecture is frozen Music.
Jobim went on record, Music is frozen Architecture!
I was raised on Debussy and Ravel, but they're a little before my time, Symphonic Jobim puts life's panorama in perspective for me.
I don't have to be near a pretty picture window to drink in the scenery when I listen to Symphonic Jobim, the beautiful motifs conjure all kinds of pictures and feelings.
Every recording becomes a by product of the time period it was made, but Symphonic Jobim has a certain timelessness attached to it... it is a perfect piece of music beginning to end.
Symphonic Jobim, a Project by Paulo Jobim and Mario Adnet, does much credit to its' Composer. Good Job!
