🎶 Pick a Dozen The Jobim CTi Trilogy (Wave, Tide, Stone Flower)

Highlighting the Pick a Dozen series
As with my previous Horace Silver feature, this latest Pick a Dozen list contains twelve of my favorite Jobim tracks from the CTi recordings. As many know, Wave was the first album recorded and released on A&M/CTi, and the following studio sessions produced both the Tide album for A&M/CTi and Stone Flower for the Columbia-distributed CTi.

Choosing favorites once again is difficult, as I had to leave favorites from both Wave and Stone Flower off of this playlist. "Tema Jazz" is about the only track from Tide that I can bear listening to, so naturally it was included in this playlist. (I've long felt that Tide was comprised of leftovers as a contract fulfillment for A&M, while CTi got the far superior Stone Flower, arguably the best of the three albums included here.)
