Antonio Carlos Jobim: Tide CD Track Listing

A list by checkmate

Antonio Carlos Jobim Tide (1970)
Originally Released May 1970\nCD Edition Released April 4, 2000\n\nAMG EXPERT REVIEW: On Jobim's second A&M album, Eumir Deodato takes over the chart-making tasks, and the difference between him and Claus Ogerman is quite apparent in the remake of "The Girl From Ipanema": the charts are heavier, more dramatic, and structured. Sometimes the arrangements roll back so one can hear, say, the dancing multi-phonic flute of wildman Hermeto Pascoal on "Tema Jazz," and the rhythms often veer away from the familiar ticking of the bossa nova. Jobim is his usual understated self, adding very subtle electric piano to his arsenal of acoustic piano and guitar, but the material sometimes falls short of Jobim's tip-top level (dead giveaway: "Tide" is a clever rewrite on the chord changes of "Wave"). Still, it's beautifully made and very musical at all times. -- Richard S. Ginell\n\nAmazon.com Customer Review\nSuave, Sophisticated, and Romantic, June 20, 2000 \nReviewer: Kurt Harding "bon vivant" (Boerne TX) \nI originally bought this CD on a Japanese import about a year ago after despairing of ever finding it on a domestic label. Now we have it! Though its been more than 30 years since its original release, Tide is just as delightful today as it ever was. There are those who would despise this as elevator music-those with a tin ear who know not the difference between mellow and schlock.Jobim, one of the founding fathers of the bossa nova sound, is nothing if not the King of Mellow and the apex of his creativity is to be heard on a trio of CTI/A&M albums released in the late 60s. Tide is one of these. (Wave and Stoneflower are the others.) The album opens with a familiar and overplayed, yet enjoyable rendition of Girl from Ipanema. Then the album becomes a nice mix between the laid-back and the up-tempo but always MELLOW.My favorites on the album are Tema Jazz (featuring an Ian Anderson-like flute solo by Hermeto Pascoal) and Rockanalia which features an understated but powerful show of Jobim's famous "one-note" piano style. On the more relaxed side, my favorites are the title cut, again featuring an excellent restrained Jobim piano interlude, and the romantic Carinhoso. There is not a bad song on the album. Tide surely deserves a place in the collection of every jazz and bossa nova enthusiast. The title of this review describes Tide perfectly. \n\nAmazon.com Customer Review\nJobim and Deodato Prove They Are The Masters, October 4, 2002 \nReviewer: Rob Keil (San Francisco) \nThis album, along with the "Stone Flower" album are in my opinion the 2 finest albums Jobim ever did. The melodies are beautiful, as always. But the real rewards here are Eumir Deodato's arrangements. Every track has that perfect balance of the familiar and the surprising. The way Deodato mixes the horns with flutes, electric piano with acoustic guitar, Brazilian percussion with traditional trap drums- is amazing. You'll be engaged by some great arranging technique on one track, and then the next track is yet another brilliant arrangement, totally different from the previous one yet still perfectly in the spirit of Jobim's "sound". This goes on through about dozen tracks- all of which are great. The "updated" arrangement of The Girl From Ipanema is a great example of this in the way that it takes a very familiar composition and re-tools it to be more complex, interesting, and hypnotic than the earlier recordings- no small task for a classic song that one would think could hardly be improved upon. The alternate take of "Tide" is also a real treat, featuring great Fender-Rhodes electric piano work in a totally stripped-down non-orchestral arrangement. I cannot compare the CD mix to the LP releases as others have, but I can say the CD sound quality overall is excellent. Verve really should re-issue more A&M/CTI dates like this. Kudos to Jobim and Deodato for really delivering the goods here and proving they are both absolute masters of their craft. \n\nAmazon.com Customer Review\nNot one of the better Jobim albums, September 12, 2000 \nReviewer: sensor "sokaer" (Europe) \nTo me this doesn't sound too inspired, more like something Jobim was contracted to do. This is underlined by the fact that he's reusing his old, often played standard 'Girl Of Ipanema'. Likewise the title track 'Tide' is a recycling of the chords to 'Wave', with a melody, that most of all sounds like a pale echo of 'Wave'. This seems, apart from the brazilian classic 'Carinhoso' to be symptomatic for the rest of the songs on the album. Songs Like 'Tema Jazz', 'Remember'(which again alternately sounds like it was built on the chords to either 'One Note Samba' and Wave') and 'Takatanga' are nice enough and has a lot of little creative details in the melody and arrangements, still it isn't as 'mindblowing', as some of the other stuff Jobim has done. So I don't think this is one of the better Jobim albums, it sounds more like a workout for Jobim and his then new arranger Deodato, before they went on to create 'Stone Flower, the follow up to this one, and a great deal better. \n\nHalf.com Album Notes\nPersonnel includes: Antonio Carlos Jobim (acoustic & electric pianos, acoustic guitar); Eumir Deodato (arranger, conductor, piano, acoustic guitar); Joe Farrell (soprano saxophone, flute, bass flute); Jerry Dodgion (alto saxophone, flute); Marvin Stamm (trumpet); Urbie Green, Garnett Brown (trombone); Ray Alonge (French horn); Hermeto Pascoal (flute); Ron Carter (bass); Joao Palma (drums); Everaldo Ferreira (congas); Airto Moreira (percussion).\n\nProducer: Creed Taylor.\nReissue producer: Richard Seidel.\nRecorded at the Van Gelder Recording Studio, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey between March 16 and May 22, 1970. Originally released on A&M (3031).\nDigitally remastered by Jellied Loaf (Universal Mastering Studios-East).\n\nThis is part of the Verve By Request series.\n\nOne of Antonio Carlos Jobim's best-known albums, 1970's TIDE is a companion piece to 1967's WAVE, a similarly lush and smooth collection for producer Creed Taylor's CTI Records. In fact, this album's lengthy title track is a theme-and-variations exploration of the main melodic line from WAVE's title track. For most of the album, Eumir Deodato, soon to become famous for his own contributions to lite-jazz fusion, handles the arrangements. Comparing his contributions to those of longtime Taylor arranger of choice Claus Ogerman, TIDE is a sprightlier album with a somewhat looser, less orchestrated feel. Of the new tracks, "Tema Jazz" is the highlight, although the sparkling "Carinhoso" is nearly its equal. This reissue features remastered sound and four bonus tracks, including three alternate takes of "Tema Jazz."\n\nIndustry Reviews\n3.5 stars out of 5 - ...Indicates an artist straddling the fence between a maker of cocktail lounge kitsch and profound composer of American song....walking the fine line between the 'Girl From Ipanema' and various takes of the bossa nova workout 'Tema Jazz'...\nDown Beat (09/01/2000)
