The first inspiration to register this work was Jobim’s 80th birthday on January 25, 2007. And also the fact that it would fit perfectly the projects of the new partnership between Adventure Music and Adnet Musica, whose main focus is precisely the rich Brazilian music that has always bubbled around here, but is not necessarily available in the market. Another strong reason is the fact that Jobim is one of the most recorded and studied composers in the U.S.

After dedicating myself to Maestro Moacir Santos’ work for six years, a great composer and arranger whose specialty was brass arrangements, it occurred to me that would be nice to record some of Jobim’s repertoire focusing on the brass arrangements, with many improvisations and absolutely Brazilian in its approach to rhythm and musical conception.

Some new and old friends were invited to perform this task, as you will see in the booklet pages. In the repertoire, a balanced selection between standards like Stone Flower, Jazz Theme, Só Danço Samba, Surfboard and a some songs that were never well known among the American public, like Meninos Eu Vi, Domingo Sincopado, Paulo Vôo Livre and Bate Boca. And curiosities like Polo Pony (one of the themes of the only film that Jobim was responsible for the soundtrack The Adventurers), and the Frevo de Orfeu, composed specially for the famous Black Orpheus movie.

To record an album like this, with Jobim’s instrumental music, recorded in Brazil with Brazilian musicians, brass arrangements and the Brazilian “sauce” will bring us back to a blending that started here in Brazil but had a short life in the beginning of the sixties. This blending was called the “samba-jazz”.

This modern Brazilian music that flourished in the late fifties and was marvelously represented by Jobim, changed Brazil and the international music scene, particularly when it became successful in the U. S.. Revitalizing this exchange between the two countries is now the best thing that could be done to mark a new era with its new forms of producing and distributing music all over the world.
