Charlie Byrd - Brazilian Byrd

Music of Antonio Carlos Jobim As Interpreted by Acoustic Guitarist Charlie Byrd    This Teo Macero production from 1965 finds the extraordinary acoustic guitarist Charlie Byrd beautifully interpreting the timeless Brazilian jazz music of bossa nova giant Antonio Carlos Jobim with string, brass, and woodwind accompaniment tastefully arranged by Tommy Newsom. In addition to Jobim's well known material like "The Girl from Ipanema" and "Corcovado," the melodic and evocative 12-song set includes Byrd's sophisticated takes on the ethereal pieces "Dindi," "O Amor Em Paz" and "Someone to Light Up My Life (Se Todos Fossem Iguais A Voce)."
