More description and Photos

Urubu, show Jobim moving away from the cool, Bossa Nova style and his compositions became more orchestral.

The album begins with a berimbau playing a Capoeira groove performed by Ray Armando. Tom flirts with Northeastern music with a symphonic approach.

 

This album reflect his interest not only in native Brazilian music, but jazz as well. Compositions such as "Saudade do Brasil," "Valse," and "Arquitetura de Morar," show the influence of Debussy as well as Jobim's countryman Heitor Villa-Lobos. Jobim also increased in this album awareness of political issues, in particular environmental concerns.
