It was Tom Jobim’s own family that suggested Carminho delve into the Jobim songbook, full of classics such as “The Girl from Ipanema”, “Wave”, “Meditation” or “Sabiá” - and underlined it by signing up the Banda Nova to back the singer during the recordings. The Banda Nova was the last of Jobim’s stage and studio backing bands, formed by his son and grandson, Paulo and Daniel Jobim, as well as celebrated cellist Jaques Morelenbaum (who had already collaborated on Carminho’s previous record) and drummer Paulo Braga.
Like the great American filmmaker William Castle, the Melvins have learned that a gimmick is a big help in getting folks to pay attention to what you're doing. The grunge pioneers have a long, rich tradition of creatively rearranging their membership, and for a band obsessed with a thick and heavy low end, they've taken the logical step and made an album with a rotating lineup of bass players. Basses Loaded feature six different bassists scattered among its 12 tracks, including Steven McDonald (of Redd Kross and OFF!), Jeff Pinkus (from the Butthole Surfers and Honky), Trevor Dunn (Mr. Bungle and Fantômas), Jared Warren (from Big Business), and Krist Novoselic (formerly of Sweet 75, Eyes Adrift, and some band from Aberdeen).
