It's great to see what Jobim was doin' at this particular phase of his career... Just to give some contextualization, at this time, 1970, Jobim was almost forgotten here in Brasil, believe it or not. Hes was booed at a Music Festival here, circa 1968, because his music, SabiĆ”, won the first prize, and the folks of those times were eager to give the first prize to a protest icon of the brazilian '60s music... it was turbulent times, in the politcs area, and Brasil was ruled by a Militar dictatorship, so people took this as an excuse to be stupid, and made a shame of themselves... so, Jobim decided to stay a little more in the Uncle Sam shores, doin' this kind of work. But even dealing with such a pedestrian story (sorry, I'm not an admirer of Harold Robbins works), his music is imbued with that indelible geniality and brazilian soul, as we can feel on trax such as the magnificent Gentle Lover, the extraordinary Children's Games and the beautiful Love Theme. All these tracks will reappear in Jobin's own records, with better and more proper arrangements by Tom himself, but it's interesting to see what Quincy done with Jobim's music. Tanx a lot for the share.
