EDITORS’ NOTES

By the time 1967’s Wave came out, Antônio Carlos Jobim was the leading composer in the bossa nova movement, yet this is the high-water mark of the maestro as a musician and arranger. The epic musical panorama here is underscored, because there is only one vocal cut—“Lamento,” which Jobim sings with wavering authenticity. It leaves more space for the mellow horns and bright strings on revelatory new versions of “Triste” and the title track, while also spotlighting intricate masterpieces like the laidback “Captain Bacardi.”
