Eddie Higgins: Speaking of Jobim

Eddie Higgins: Speaking of Jobim

Pianist Eddie Higgins has been in Florida for many years but a great deal of his career was spent in Chicago. He still returns, most every year, to play for those that he touched at London House and numerous other Chicago clubs. This album showcases the compositions of Antonio Carlos Jobim, sans “Ipanema” and the other well-known hits. The point is that although Jobim composed hundreds of tunes, the masses only remember one or two of the hits and most musicians only a few more.

So this CD gives us eleven marvelous Jobim tunes plus Carlos Lyra’s “Voce E Eu” to expands our love of the bossa nova. The performances recorded in NYC with bassist Jay Leonhart and drummer Terry Clarke, are world class. It was also good to read that Eddie Higgins acknowledged Chicago bassist Cal Drake for teaching him the nearly forgotten “Brigas Nunca Mais” one of the many highlights of the CD. I expect that this will become a popular recording, especially in Chicago!—MV
