"For Jobim lovers like me this is a worthy album to keep in your collection. The album begins with The Girl From Ipanema followed by Meditation, both done as well as you'd ever want to hear them.
Also included is Luiz Bonfa's very beautiful Manha De Carnaval which on this disk is named Black Orpheus, otherwise known to American audiences as A Day In The Life Of A Fool. The Shadow Of Your Smile, written by Johnny Mandel, is done exceptionally well followed by Bart Howard's Fly Me To The Moon.
Sadao Watanabe's Bossa Nova '67 was released again in 1986 under the name Fly Me To The Moon with a newly designed cover. However, they are the same album. All in all, a great way to start a day that belongs to you and you alone--or you and that special someone.
