"Simply brilliant, a velvety late-night snapshot of Jobim at his peak." — AllMusic
One of the great popular music composers of the 20th Century, Antonio Carlos Jobim emerged from Brazil's burgeoning bossa nova movement of the early-1960s. The quietly powerful Stone Flower, recorded in 1970 at Rudy Van Gelder's studio in New Jersey and produced by Creed Taylor, contains nine graceful compositions including the jazz waltz "Children's Games," the sublime "Choro," the sophisticated "Andorinha," and the dramatic title track.
With flawless arrangements from fellow Brazilian Eumir Deodat, the silky smooth set features Jobim on piano, acoustic guitar, and, occasionally his trademark husky, half-whispered vocals with further accompaniment from Joe Farrell (soprano saxophone), Urbie Green (trombone), Ron Carter (double bass), João Palma (drums), Harry Loofosky (violin) and Airto Moreira/Everaldo Ferreira (percussion).
This double LP reissue from ORG Music was mastered from the original analog tapes by Bernie Grundman at 45 RPM, pressed on audiophile-grade 180-gram vinyl at Pallas in Germany, and comes in a Stoughton case-wrapped gatefold jacket. Each of the 1,500 copies is numbered with a gold foil stamp.
