This is possibly one of the best CDs that combine two of best the albums of Joao Gliberto at his peak( One of the fathers of Bossa Nova- The other is of course A. C. Jobim).

The orchestrations of Claus Ogerman in the first album ( Amorso) are magical and one of his best arrangements.

Simply Joao at his best in these two albums and a must listen to all Brazilian (Bossa Nova) Jazz music fans.

This bottom line about Joao Gilberto is that no one will ever stop anything from rushing a melody like his voice can.

If that wasn't enough, his guitar and his glorious compositions are stellar, his renditions of Brazilian classics and Claus Ogerman's strings, in Amoroso, are without a blemish.

This is two-albums-in-one kind of thing, and for a change, you get two momentous albums. The second half, Joao shares the studio with Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa and Maria Bethania, which guarantees that Brasil--the second album--is a treat, one of those occasions that thankfully gets recorded.

As big as Caetano and the rest of Tropicalia's first row are, the music is a pledge to Gilberto, nothing is more important than the Bossa he sings, right now, so many years ago.

This should be listened to whilst sipping on a white rum and lime juice, with a bit of sunshine and a little shade.

I heard a snippet of a song on the radio whilst sat in the car one very wet and windy Sunday lunchtime. Came home and Googled the very few words I'd managed to catch, and happily and unexpectedly discovered Joao Gilberto. Beautiful CD, perfect to relax to.

Gilberto music takes you away, you drift away to the smooth Samba sounds Joao Gilberto makes singing so relaxing it puts you in the place you imagine being on a beach in Brasil
