Joe Beck Trio Brazilian Dreamin' Single-Layer Stereo Japanese Import SACD
This Single-Layer SACD can only be played on a Super Audio CD Player!
"Joe Beck has had a long career, though he remains an artist deserving of wider
recognition. These 2005 sessions are a relaxing affair that will delight fans of
Brazilian jazz. Joined by bassist Ira Coleman and drummer Thierry Arpino (who is
known for his work with violinist Jean-Luc Ponty), Beck's fluid electric guitar
(while sometimes overdubbing an acoustic rhythm line) makes the most of each
selection, playing a heavy dose of popular tunes by Antonio Carlos Jobim and his
own tasty originals. Highlights among the Jobim compositions include the
bittersweet "O Grande Amor" and the easygoing "Felicidade." Harmonica player
Gregoire Maret is added for the leader's gentle bossa nova "And Here's to You"
and Jobim's bittersweet "Falando De Amor." Beck also offers an inventive samba
arrangement of John Coltrane's "Giant Steps" that adds a few twists while played
at a slower-than-typical tempo, so it sneaks up on the listener. Highly
recommended! " - Allmusic
