In The Spirit Of Jobim

In The Spirit of Jobim is comprised of five classics made famous by Brazilian legend Antonio Carlos Jobim—“One Note Samba,” “Wave,” “Tristeifinado” (“Triste” and “Desafinado”), “Corcovado” and “The Girl From Ipanema”—and seven Bromberg compositions emulating Jobim’s style.

Brian Bromberg’s career began as a teenager backing saxophonist Stan Getz. In the nearly forty years since and over 20 projects in his catalog, Bromberg has established himself as a first-call master of the upright as well as electric basses, releasing more than 20 albums globally as a leader and providing low-end for the likes of Chris Botti, Lee Ritenour and Michael Bublé.

“Thicker Than Water is a record I’ve been wanting to make for a very long time,” says the dynamic bass virtuoso Brian Bromberg. “I love the upright bass. It’s where my heart and soul is. My connection with that instrument is unlike anything in my life. I also love the electric bass and really wanted to explore its endless possibilities on this project.” That love of the bass is evident across the wide-range of irresistible grooves found on Thicker Than Water, available July 13 on Artistry Music.
