O’s Notes: This is the Vol. 2 of Albare Plays Jobim and it is about as good as the first act (85) with Albare extending his reach into the Brazilian songbooks. The beauty of a string orchestra resonates on the opener “Dindi” and throughout the session. Guest artist Nestor Torres (fl) shines on “Summer Samba” and “How Insensitive”. Randy Brecker (t) and Antonio Sanchez (d) also appear on two selections each. The combinations of Albare’s warm guitar with the band and Jobim’s classic samba is everlasting bliss.
