the best Astrud you could find... 23 May 2001
By "katchyna" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album is my favorite of Astrud's, the songs she does in portuguese are magical. I don't mind the English ones on this album, easier on the ears than some others I've heard. I like Astrud's voice, if you've never heard her, definately listen to a track sample before buying her cds, she's got an unusual voice. I would recommend this over any other Astrud solo album, both for music quality and song selection. If you're looking for something comparable to a Getz/Gilberto, this is not it. But if you're looking for sultry vocals over a light bossa-nova background, check this out, its really rather charming.

An album that captures absolute 'felicidade' 3 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The first time I heard this album, I was absolutely hooked! The combination of Astrud Gilberto's soft, alluring voice and the masterful orchestrations of the late Gil Evans is altogether amazing. It seems impossible that such lush, soaring harmonies in the brass section could possibly enhance the intimacy of Astrud's voice, but here, the impossible is accomplished. I highly recommend this album!

Such a beautiful voice and well-done light jazz-bossa nova arrangements.Fans of Stereolab and Tortoise take note.

Not classic bossa but very good 13 July 2000
By Mattias - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I really dig this album. Especially Gil Evans arrangements. It's not classic bossanova, but that's what I like about it. The intro on the Brazilian classic "Felicidade" is absolutely great.

Not bad, but not her best. 3 1/2 stars 10 May 2010
By Eric J. Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This version of the album (the original Verve CD release) combines what was -- in the old days of vinyl LPs -- the Look To the Rainbow album (11 songs) and the first half of Astrud's album with organist Walter Wanderly, A Certain Smile, A Certain Sadness (6 tunes).

For me, the latter six are much better. What's wrong with the first 11 tracks? The best of these are available on other compilations. The arrangements on some tracks are a little agressive and I might even say strange, and do not mesh well with Astrud's soft gentle style of singing. Astrud herself sounds just slightly out of tune here and there on some songs, which may not bother others, but it bothers me.

There's an indefinable energy, a rightness and confidence of interpretation, on her first album, the Astrud Gilberto Album The Astrud Gilberto Album, that is missing on tracks 1-11 of this effort. Oh, the songs themselves on The AG Album, being largely Jobim compositions, are better than these as well.

I recommend A Certain Smile, A Certain Sadness A Certain Smile, A Certain Sadness, and in fact I own it. Having that CD will make the last six tracks of this album redundant. If you own Astrud's other early albums and still want more, then go for Look To The Rainbow. It's not her best, but there are still some joys to be found if you're a dedicated fan.
