Antonio Carlos Jobim's music has always revealed the beauty and contradictions of Brazilian culture. The richness and complexity of Jobim's creativity is on full display in this live set from Jovino Santos Neto and his Quinteto, with special guests Romero Lubambo of Trio da Paz and vocalist Maucha Adnet (who spent 10 years as a member of Jobim's Banda Nova). Jobim's beautiful harmonies often present a challenging vehicle for improvisation, but you would n ever know it from the freedom these musicians demonstrate here. Just listen to the deep samba groove and virtuosic solos on "One Note Samba" or Maucha's profoundly emotional delivery on "Por Causa de Você" - the musicians hold nothing back. Thankfully, we have this recording to shine a fresh light on Jobim's musical legacy.
