Camila Benson: Wave: Songs from Antonio Carlos Jobim

The intros to these 12 Jobim tunes have a new age feel. On “Wave” there’s the pounding surf and the crying of birds. Guitarist/vocalist Benson also likes to use vocalese, as she does on “Little Boat” and “Agua de Beber.” “One Note Samba” is sung at a very fast clip. Benson’s choice of material couldn’t be better and she sings with clarity and feeling. The arrangements are by Ryo Kawasaki.
