About the album
Antônio Carlos Brasileiro de Almeida (“Tom”) Jobim (Rio de Janeiro,1927-New York,1994) was a Bazilian composer / singer/guitarist/pianist who wrote many songs with lyrics by poet/diplomat Vinicius de Moraes. In 1963 the Getz/Gilberto hits “Desafinado” and “The Girl from Ipanema” brought him definite worldwide fame as the father of the Bossa Nova.
This is the first album of the group ‘Dirindi’ with lady singer Marzieh Reyhani, recorded in June, 2004. As the title suggests, it is an exclusive tribute to Jobim, commemorating the 10th anniversary of his death. This album contains songs that are at least as beautiful as his biggest hits. The band is named after a small forest located in one of the states of Rio, Poço Fundo, where Jobim used to come as a child. He liked the sound of the word Dirindi. Later he based the title of his song Dindi upon it.
Antonio Carlos “Tom” Jobim heeft talloze stukken gecomponeerd. Marzieh Reyhani heeft hiervan 16 stukken geselecteerd om met haar fluwelen stem te interpreteren. Hieruit zijn de mooiste Bossa Nova stukken voortgekomen. Je hoeft niet meer op vakantie, haal de zomer in huis. Met: Frederike Darius (fluit), Sjoerd Dijkhuizen (sax), Maarten van der Grinten (gitaar), Jurandir Gomes (basgitaar) en Enrique Firpi (drums).
