Joe Henderson Does Jobim

Inspired by the last couple of days worth of jazz links over at Totally Fuzzy here's a little more jazz. In 1995 Joe Henderson released Double Rainbow, a tribute to the music of noted Brazilian composer Antonio Carlos Jobim. It was recorded with 2 different groups of musicians, all hot up and comers of the time. The band on side one is made up of Eliane Elias on piano, Oscar Castro-Neves on guitar, Nico Assumpçao on bass and Paulo Braga on drums - all giving the music a very native feel. Triste is from side two of the album, with a different band - Herbie Hancock on piano, Christian McBride on bass and Jack DeJohnette on drums. It's a great rendition, with good input from everybody. These songs have long been associated with the sax so it's no surprise that Joe is smokin' - actually, everybody is. A great set.
