4.0 out of 5 stars gvv 8 Jan 2008
By 77
Format:Audio CD
It's easy to be over-critical on albums. Yeah, the damn language barrier means I miss out on any lyrical brilliance &, yeah, this isn't varied enough & has a fairly throwaway instrumental track, yet there's something so subtly glorious about hearing João Gilberto every so often (both the person & the album). Just a man, his guitar & the most delicate of percussive backdrops. Sometimes bores me, other times makes me wonder why I bother listening to any other artists; always great background music if nothing else, and I mean that in the most sincere way possible.

As a side note, I've heard many people say that this is the absolute, ultimate, completely flawless classic in bossa nova, so perhaps you should go with them instead. I dunno, I just hope you enjoy the album; I sure did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Killer 25 Nov 2003
By Daniel Fineberg - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Sometimes referred to as The White Album (one of the few modern artists whose greatness can withstand comparison to that of the Beatles), this album was recorded sometime around 1970. Only Joao and a drummer are present, though then-girlfriend Miucha appears on one song. Somehow this album stands apart from all his others--maybe because it is so sparse, yet many of the numbers are up-tempo. He runs through "Eu Vim da Bahia" five times and makes it definitive. He brings a new and unexpected phrasing to "Aguas de Marco." He is at his most playful on "Eu Quero um Samba". And three tunes virtually do away with words altogether--"Undiu" finds him hypnotically chanting the title word, "Valsa" finds him humming a lullaby to his daughter, and an astonishing instrumental version of "Na Baixa do Sapateiro" finds him at his most dexterous on the guitar. It's a near-perfect album.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Bossa Nova Records of All Time 4 Oct 2002
By Rob Keil - Published on
Format:Audio CD
In my opinion, this is probably Gilberto's finest work. His playing is so spare and seemingly simple, but really so intense. His vocals are just above a whisper yet he manages to swing and exude so much emotion. The recording quality is also excellent. You simply must hear this music to understand how enriching the album is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Obrigadinho João ! 16 Feb 2000
By Peppino - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Simply put, the most "progressive" recording available from "O MESTRE DA BOSSA NOVA",this cd is a MUST for all bossa enthusiasts.-- SPECIFICALLY for musicians who wish to study & learn "O JEITINHO",the trick to playing guitar in the style revolutionized by Seu Gilberto! This recording is very spare (guitar, bass & percussions) The listener is captivated not by lush orchestrations nor distracted by overproduction--the interplay of João's guitar in counterpoint to the quirky vocal delivery is amazing to hear ! This is especially evident on this rendition of "AGUAS DO MARCO",the Jobim standard. Caetano's "Avarandando" is a whisper in the wind--"que maravilha! " dont miss this one, it can go back out of print at any time! 1

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic 15 Dec 2001
By Henry Zeno - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This was recorded in 1973. It's one of the few records that changed my life, twisted my head around. João doesn't sound, at first, as if he's doing anything. There seems to be no modulation, no color. Then you begin to hear the beauty behind the repetition, the soul, and the cunning of a true artist. There aren't too many people who could be so completely traditional and so completely weird at the same time. Gilberto is a fantastic guitar player, and he swings. A lot of people regard this as the greatest Brazilian music recording ever made; at the very least, it's one of the two or three definitive bossa nova records.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Master 23 Sep 2000
By Jeffrey V. Badgett - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This record certainly represents a high water mark in the career of one of the world's great musicians. Gilberto's singing and guitar playing in the spare, zen-like setting communicate pure swing--the kind of bouyant feeling found in only the best work by greats such as Jimmy Blanton or Charlie Christian. The peak of achivement might be "Eu Quero Um Samba" or "Eu Vim Da Bahia" or the famous "Aguas De Março." You will discover your own favorites. My wish would be for a company to bring this thing out on 180 gm vinyl with careful re-mastering and pressing. I also wouldn't mind some discographical details. Yum. But in the meantime, this CD sounds very good since it is AAD. Buy it and enjoy!
