Neptune’s Hep Tune  performed by  Antonio Carlos Jobim  (1966)
Composed by Menescal
Arranged by Deodato-Gaya
From: Brazil
Mood: Jazzy
Recommended by delicado [profile] before May 2001

An unusal Jobim track, which was recorded in Brazil and is much rougher around the edges than most of his better known work. This track explodes into action half way through with some killer jazz piano.

The big news that I just found out is that this isn't really a Jobim track at all! Apparently, this is really just the work of Deodato and Gaya, even though Jobim's name was put on the cover for the US audience.

from Love, Strings and Jobim (Warner Brothers WS1636), available on CD (Warner UK)

  24 Jun 04 ·brasilnut: This song is actually "morte de um deus de sal" by Marcos Valle
  24 Jun 04 ·eftimihn: And actually the whole album isn't an Jobim album at all, it was originally titled "Tom Jobim apresenta". The purpose was to benefit from Jobims name (and fame) to introduce new brazilian artists to american audiences. The confusion resulted, if i remember correctly, in the fact that the musicians names were not credited on the album and people thought this must be a Jobim album.
