The Best.

"Nothing can beat this. He is a full orchestra. Among Davis, Evans, Bach, Hendrix, Jobim, everytime I come back to this album, Joao in Montreaux, this is the best. Everything that is beautiful about music is here, and I wonder how miserable it would be if I had to live without Joao. Dear WEA/ELEKTRA people, I desperately hope to hear this all. I do insist that the original DOUBLE CD TO BE REISSUED. It is a sin to hide even a single song that Joao sang in the warehouse."
Unique, pity the original double cd is not available

"Out of a record collection of about 700 CDs and 500 vynils, this is maybe one of my best. Joao and his guitar. Nothing else. His voice and his weird tempi are magic. Listen out for 'Madame', 'O samba mandou-me chamar' or the best 'Felicidade' ever (apologies for my poor portuguese). A must. The original double CD should be re-issued."

"Like Thelonious Monk, like Erroll Garner, Joao Gilberto has done little to change his style over the course of his musical life. I saw him play a month ago in San Francisco, and at age 73, all that has really changed is his voice, now colored by age, but not even a great deal. He still plays with tremendous focus and ability. And, like Basie's American swing or Django's European swing, he has his own swing which is purely Brazilian and purely Gilberto. And he still prefers to be his own band, dropping even the spare drums he had in the 60s and 70s. The Montreux show is outstanding. The crowd is very receptive, and usually interrupt the first few seconds of a famous song with applause. It's a strange tradition. In typical Gilberto fashion, he mixes the oldies with some newer songs, most notably Caetano Veloso's "Menino do Rio." The other highlights (though there really aren't any lowlights) are "Morena Boca de Ouro," "Pra Que Discutir com Madame," "Sem Compromisso" and "Preconceito.""
