"I doubt if Jobim had a lot to do with this album. Most of the numbers on this cd can be heard either on the Luis Bonfa album 'Composer of Black Orpheus Sings and Plays' or the Bonfa/Getz album 'Jazz Samba Encore'. And most of the compositions on this record are also usually credited to Bonfa, but with different titles. As far as I can tell the only two 'real' Jobim numbers on the cd are 'Janelas Abertas' and 'Estrada Branca, which are featured here in 'okay' versions. But all in all, if you are interested in hearing this music, you might be better off buying the two abovementioned albums, since they have a much better sound quality."
Ok disc, but not Jobim

"This CD features ten compositions written or co-written by Jobim, played by an uncredited group of musicians. It does not, however, contain the master himself. Consider this a warning! Having said that, the music is well- played and (of course) well written. There's a great-sounding jazz saxophonist who is featured on two selections whom I recognize to be Stan Getz. Audio quality is questionable, at best."

"The only reason this CD is not four stars is because it is only half of a double CD set. Other than that, it is incredibly romantic and nostalgic. It reminds you of a quiet sunset on a beach with the love of your life. The sound quality isn't perfect but that imperfection gives the CD charm for classic enthusiasts. It also greatly contrasts to the more popular Jobim titles. This'll definitely get your mouth wet but if you can, find the double CD."
