|Description from Musicroom UK|
Regarded by some as the George Gershwin of Latin America, Jobim's delicate melodies and lilting, shimmering songs quickly became an integral part of the jazz repertoire. Songs such as Corcovado and Garote De Ipanema have been re-interpreted thousands of times over, even to become synonymous with performers like Andy Williams, Stan Getz and Wes Montgomery themselves. Furthermore, for many the sound of Jobim's warm tones and gentle guitar style have come to signify the sound of 60s Brazil like no other artist. This collection of songs represents Jobim at his very best, and are presented in their original language.
