The second chapter of Morelenbaum2/Sakamoto, A Day In New York picks up where the trio’s moody and elegant 2002 debut, Casa, left off and broadens the vision. Rather than covering a broad spectrum of Antonio Carlos Jobim’s compositions while stressing lesser-known material, as it did on the debut, Morelenbaum2/Sakamoto does five more Jobim tunes and three songs from other composers as well as three new versions of songs that also appeared on Casa. The playing on this session (a studio date tacked to the end of a tour) is a little more upbeat than the moody debut. Nonetheless, the music is again absolutely stunning thanks to additional help from guitarist Luiz Brasil and percussionist Marcelo Costa. Highlights here include classics "Desafinado" and Joao Gilberto’s "Bim Bom" and "Insensitez," all of which couldn’t have been done better. Filled with yearning romance, sentimental playing, and the tasteful restraint of classic bossa nova, A Day In New York is a fine follow-up to an excellent debut. --Tad Hendrickson

The Morelenbaums, part of Tom Jobim's musical "family" have done an excellent job once again of proving that his music, some of it now almost 50 years old, is indeed timeless. Jobim's elegant and intricate melodies, combined with Vinícius de Moraes' poetic lyrics keep this music a strong statement of the seductive music Brasil has offered to the world. The brilliant addition of Ryuichi Sakamoto makes this group shine. Reading the liner notes, it would appear that this album was almost an afterthought to the tour-ending of the remarkable previous album by this group, "Casa". What a treat then that the recording was even made! "A Day In New York" is very similiar to "Casa" with a live feel to it and includes, in addition to the Jobim/de Moraes songs, one of João Gilberto's early, fun compositions *Bim Bom* and a haunting song *Coração Vagabundo* (Vagabond Heart) by the superb singer, songwriter etc., etc., Caetano Veloso, as well as a truly gorgeous new song composed, it seems, by the Morelenbaums, Sakamoto and T. Onuki called *Tango*. This song as well as all the others, is superbly sung by the beautiful voice of Paula Morelenbaum. No wonder Jobim wanted her to sing his melodies. She has the gift of being able to sing the "saudade" that is so prevelant in his music, perfectly, and has a crystal clear, sensual voice on these songs. The cello of Jaques Morelenbaum is, as always, achingly beautiful and the piano sound of Sakamoto is eerily like that of Jobim himself. The inclusion of the great guitarist, Luiz Brasil and Marcelo Costa at percussion puts this album over the top. My favorite song on the album? The heart-rending *Chora Coração* by Jobim and de Moraes.Read more ›

I have more than 20 titles of Bossa Nova music, from Jobim's play to Ono Lisa. This title "Day in New York" is one of my favourite. I suggest all Bossa Nova lovers should have this one. The most impressive paly is "Chega de Saudade", the best version I've ever heard. The whole feeling is just right! Very wild and sexy singer and players.

This is bossa nova as chamber music. The musicians, Paula and Jaques Morelenbaum, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Luiz Brasil, and Marcelo Costa, play with incredible refinement and delicacy. The songs are classics, most of them from the Antonio Carlos Jobim songbook. Ever since I first heard this record, every other bossa nova disc, even the classic "Elis & Tom," sounds sloppy and unfocused. If you need one CD to exemplify Brazilian music for your collection, go with this one. My favorite song is "Sabia," which has a gorgeous solo piano coda at the end to wrap things up.

I bought this CD about 2 days ago and I love it! I purchased this one a few months after thoroughly enjoy their first release "Casa." Unlike "Casa," this one is recorded live. Believe it or not, I'm enjoying their CD's more than the Antonio Jobim CD's I have in my collection!
