Editorial Reviews

Product Description

1967 album from the Brazilian musician and composer. Wave is a collection of 1967 dates featuring keyboardist Jobim backed by an extensive orchestra.

Amazon.com

It's hardly a stretch to say that Antonio Carlos Jobim--the wonderful Brazilian composer almost single-handedly responsible for all things bossa nova--influenced some of past half century's best and most insipid musics, from bossa nova jazz to elevator Muzak. Wave, a collection of 1967 dates featuring keyboardist Jobim backed by an extensive orchestra, straddles that line: it's full of amazing original compositions, but the arrangements have a certain faux suave, late-'60s lounge feel that reeks of stale cheese. The result is actually great, the veneer of kitsch insidiously masking Jobim's trademark immeasurable sadness, which creeps up on you and leaves you unexpectedly affected. --Keven McAlester

Customer Reviews

Antonio Carlos Jobim is one of the papas of the music form.
thisisgibbie
This is one of those cd collections that can be listened to from start to finish more than once.
E. Macomber
And at the very end you hear a brief piano passage played by Jobim himself.

I first bought WAVE on vinyl, shortly it was released, already being a fan of Jobim. I played the grooves off of it. Now, I have it in CD. It's doubtful anyone in the world has played and listened to this album more than I have over the years. The appeal is threefold: First, Jobim's music is relentlessly upbeat and mood elevating. There is a happiness and joy which never fails to make your outlook on life better. Second, the music is relaxing. It cuts through tension and removes the stress and aggravation of everyday living. Third, it's rhythmic. Brazilian beats are recognized as the most expressive and soul-moving in the world. If these rhythms don't get your body subtly moving, you'll need life supports! If you don't know Jobim or haven't listened to Brazilian Bossa Nova, start here! Jobim is the undisputed, heavyweight champion of the genre and THIS album is at the absolute top of his work. Do NOT miss it!

Years ago, A&M records re-issued some of the old CTI recordings under their Audio Masters Plus series. When I heard that A&M had re-issued the Jobim recordings "Tide" and "Wave", I ran down to my nearest record store and bought a copy of each. And when the CD version of "Wave" was released a few years later, I bought a copy of that too.
Call me obsessive-compulsive if you will but I just can't get enough of great music. And without a doubt, I must say Antonio Carlos Jobim's "Tide" and "Wave" albums are true masterpieces.
In listening to the vinyl and CD versions of "Wave", there is little, if any, discernable difference in audio quality. The CD version is every bit as good as the vinyl version; either way, listening to this album is a real treat.
Side one is my favorite as all the tunes are smooth and soothing to the soul. The title track, "The Red Blouse" and "Look to the Sky" are among my favorites. Then again, side two has some real gems like "Mojave" and "Lamento".
Anyone who loves jazz, easy listening, Bossa Nova or just good music, will enjoy this album. Get it while you can and while you're at it, pick up a copy of "Tide" too. You won't regret it!

The best recommendation for this CD can be told in the fact that, while on a long car trip, I packed a nice selection of CDs to listen to, but this was the one that played during the entire journey! Creed Taylor, who produced this disc, was a producer of jazz for Verve in the 60s, and his name is synonymous with excellence in jazz. In the late 60s, early 70s, CTI, his label, came to be, and he also gave A&M Records his name in releasing some exquisite jazz discs. This disc is gorgeous, and certainly bears the stamp of never getting boring. And, Creed Taylor issued about 10 discs for A&M that, like this one, have exotic, spectacular covers (photographs), which once were available for framing. But I can only say, with some authority, that if you are looking for a disc for dinner music, to set a romantic evening, or for a cool getway journey by car, you can't go wrong with "Wave". It has a sequel, "Tide", equally beautiful, but "Wave" is better.

Although bossa nova was already known to the world with albums like Jazz Samba and Getz/Gilberto, this album (recorded in 1967 at Rudy Van Gelder's studio) helped establish Antonio Carlos Jobim himself as a known name. While Jazz Samba and Getz/Gilberto approach bossa nova with a smaller group, Wave has more of an emphasis on orchestration of stringed instruments, which is arranged beautifully by Claus Ogerman. However, instruments such as piano, bass, drums, and other percussion are still present.

Wave features instrumental versions of 10 Jobim originals, and each one is saturated with Brazilian bossa nova rhythms. Most of the songs on here are not jazz standards like "Girl From Ipanema" is. In fact, the only songs I would say are jazz standards are "Triste," "Wave" and maybe "Look to the Sky." So, this stands as a great introduction to the music of Jobim. It ao serves quite well as an introduction to bossa nova, as this was the first bossa nova album I ever listened to. I have been hooked on the genre ever since.

I would recommend this album to anyone wanting to investigate bossa nova because you'll get to hear some very famous songs with a very authentic bossa nova sound. But, you also get to hear very obscure Jobim songs such as "Captain Bacardi," "Mojave," "Dialogo," and "Antigua." I believe the obscure songs are more of a standout than the standards because they really translate the instrumental bossa nova sound wonderfully. I think if you want to know the genre better, then this is one of the first albums you should get.

This is Jobim's finest album, although Stone Flower and Tide are certainly worth checking out. The songwriting on this album is sublime, the arrangements are brilliant and the execution is flawless. The melodies are minimal, yet strikingly elegant: they are small but very effective, impressionistic tone poems, each exquisite in its own right.

There doesn't seem to be a single misplaced or extraneous note on this entire album--it is as close to perfection as anything I've heard. Wave is really a beautifully crafted album in every detail. I can't praise this album enough. Listen to this.
