El guitarrista, compositor y arreglista japonés Goro Ito (Aomori, 1964), conocido principalmente por sus discos en el duo Naomi & Goro, junto a la cantante Naomi Fuse, vuelve a demostrar su admiración hacia la Bossa nova, ya que son las principales figuras de esta y sus obras la fuente de inspiración para componer la suite "Amorozsofia" y el impulso para la producción de este ábum homenaje a João Gilberto, al álbum "Amoroso" (1977) y a los arreglos de Claus Ogerman. Un disco que sigue una línea similar a la de su anterior trabajo orquestal "Architect Jobim", un elogiado álbum en homenaje a Antonio Carlos Jobim que lanzó en 2017.
Estructurado en tres bloques, el disco se inicia y termina con la suite "Amorozsofia" interpretada con dos formaciones diferentes, con instrumentación y arreglos diferentes. El bloque central presenta otras dos composiciones orginales de Ito y versiones de los clásicos "Wave" y "Estate" (ambos incluidos en el repertorio del mencionado álbum "Amoroso") y "Águas de Março", éste último único tema cantado, con Paula Morelenbaum como solista.
En definitiva, un delicioso -sereno y elegante- cruce musical que combina elementos de música clásica, de jazz y de música popular brasileña, que, si bien no se puede calificar de innovador, sí que merece una atenta -y, sin duda, resultará placentera- escucha.

"Goro Ito (aka Moose Hill) is a composer, arranger, guitarist, and producer active as a solo artist and a member of the bossa-nova duo Naomi & Goro. Along with releasing his own albums and performing in Japan and abroad, he has written music for movies. While pursuing his own music with a profound taste of Bossa Nova, Ito has played in genre-straddling styles of music such as classic and rock, etc. Besides his own work, he has collaborated with various musicians, including Ryuichi Sakamoto, Haruomi Hosono, and Yukihiro Takahashi. For singer and actress Tomoyo Harada, he has produced many songs and albums. It is now releasing Amorozsofia -Abstract João, an eleven-track project featuring a chamber ensemble, originals, and arrangements on the Universal Music label.
Amorozsofia is a classically influenced composition in three movements. “I. Ghost Thistle” is the first movement of a three-part composition by Ito and features the chamber ensemble building the mood with swelling strings and broad musical gestures. “II. Virtual Glyph” has a romantic string melody over a soft piano figure and light drums. The woodwinds build the final colors as the piece flows into the third movement, “III. Distorting Visual Line.” “III. Distorting Visual Line” is more active and has a darker hue, making a fitting ending movement.
Antonio Carlos Jobim’s “Wave” is given an exciting arrangement with the chamber orchestra coloring the well-known melody with romantic string counterpoints and pastel woodwind colors. Ito’s writing is always focused on bringing the theme to the forefront and supporting it with rich textures. The ensemble continues to grow in sound as the arrangement unfolds, there is no improvised section, but instead, the melody is repeated with varying textures. Those textures and subtle variations in the theme and harmony give the arrangement a flow and simplicity to listen to and enjoy.
Amorozsofia -Abstract João is an enjoyable crossover project that combines classical, jazz, and Brazilian sounds to form an exciting sound painting. Ito’s writing of extended works has beautiful orchestrations, mystic refrains, and revving themes. The arrangements are adorned with an assortment of shadings and sound-shaping processes that shed new light on these classics. The musicians cast stirring imagery through Ito’s writing, and this is a project that should interest any broad music lover’s palette." Ferell Aubre (The Jazz Word,  14.06.2021)
