  • April 06, 2010 Disappointed with chords and arrangement

    I usually enjoy Evans arrangements but unfortunately, this Jobim edition has problems. Evans choice of chords and certain key notes is inaccurate and loses the iconic Jobim Brazilian sound. A minor point is that the lovely Jobim lyrics are absent. There is no shortage of Jobim arrangements available and I...

    purchased this book hoping Evans had a novel arrangement style...but the sound is not to my liking.

  • November 04, 2008 Not Lee's best.

    I love Lee Evan's work but in Jobim's case, I prefer the traditional (original?) arrangement.

  • October 02, 2007 More Great Stuff!

    yes.more great arrangements from Lee Evans although I agree that some of the chording is questionable. However,quality arrangements of this nature are in such lamentably short supply that any arrangement by Mr.Evans is well worth trying.

  • September 13, 2007 Another Marvelous Lee Evans volume!

    I couldn't say where the other reviewers "are coming from," but speaking for myself, I found (and find) this to be some of Lee Evans's best work as an arranger, and given the high level of his craft, that is saying something. I base my opinion on having...

    played the piano for over 35 years, and also on having most of Lee Evans' arrangements of various composers. It's nice easy to get the rhythm just right in playing Bossa Nova--it's something I always struggle with--so maybe that is the source of the other reviewers' frustration. But as piano arranging goes, this collection showcases Lee Evans's remarkable talents once again. My personal favorites from this volume are "Lamento," "Meditation," "The Red Blouse, "Samba Do Avaio," "Song Of The Sabia," and "Triste." Any one of these arrangements are more than worth "the price of admission." By all means give this very rewarding collection a try. And cheers to all piano lovers out there!

  • April 06, 2007 Wave by Jobim

    I ordered this book in search of a piano arrangement for Wave, the Jobim bossa nova piece. I found it to be an awkward, almost dissonant rendition. So much so that the melody is almost lost. I thought it would be relatively accessible for an early intermediate piano student but...

    it really isn't.
