CD Reviews

A brilliant compilation!
01/05/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the quintessential entry-level recording for those keen on exploration of not only some of Jobim's greatest tunes, but some of Getz' and Gilberto's finest performances. Nearly every track has you tapping your feet and longing for a martini. Much more should be said about this excellent collection, but I'll leave it to the ears. Buy it!"
Nice mix/variety of bossa nova standards

"I'm not usually fond of compilations per se, but I like this one a lot. From Baden Powell's "Tristeza" to Walter Wanderley's "Summer Samba", I think this CD has something for everyone. A nice balance of both instrumentals and vocals in one package!"
An Ultimate Night in Baia!

"I adore this little compilation by Verve Records. As a previous reviewer mentioned, "Buy it!", yes, get your hands on this copy NOW (while it is still available).

Instrumentals like "O'Barquinho" (by organist Walter Wanderley), "Summer Sadness" (by pianist Antonio Jobim) and "Tristeza" (by guitarist legendary Baden Powell) are tunes fixed in my head. I actually get the feel of Brazil in any area and in any moment I stand. By the way, there are more instrumentals I adore on this CD compilation (like, Stan Getz's "Mas que Nada", etc.)

For those who like Bossa Nova and Samba, trust me...don't fall short on getting this great compilation CD. You won't regret it."
