Recommended ****


Jobim’s first U.S. album, every cut a Jobim original, every one on its way to becoming a standard, quite the feat for the man from Rio, here backed with breezy Ogerman arrangements, produced by Creed with his signature swatches of flute and such, Jobim on piano and guitar, some improvisation but mostly just simple presentations of some beautiful tunes from Brazil.
