Format: Audio CD
For me, this album has some of the most beautiful music I have ever heard.
Anyone who has ever truly loved will understand how Jobim conveys this with the control of a maestro mixed with the innocent optimism of a child.
A rare talent who gives a voice to the beauty of things we may overlook, it's good to know that he was recognised by his work with the likes of Sinatra.
I would recommend anything by him....but this album is quite simply perfect.

with Nelson Riddle Orchestra 11 Nov. 2006
By Bill O. Thomas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Half sung in Portugese, half English, awesome album, backed by phenomenal Nelson Riddle Orchestra along with Jobim's guitar.

My only problem with this album is that it is way too short 26 Jan. 2013
By Lou B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
for such exquisitely beautiful music coming from this one time teaming of Antonio Carlos Jobim and the legendary Nelson Riddle who was, for my money, the gretest arranger we ever had. Virtually every track here is flawless but I especially love the instrumental passages, especially Riddle's treatment of the tune "Surfboard".
Its a great loss these two guys didn't do another album together and the talents of both these artists are greatly missed. While I freely admit I purchased this album on Riddle's name, Jobim was also a big factor in purchasing this because I really dig his songs and the fact that he was one of the creators of the bossa nova sound,
a form of music I've always enjoyed. A fine album but too maddeningly short! Enjoy it!

One of the bosses of the bossa nova 28 Nov. 2013
By Analog - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Classic Jobim - Jobim and the Gilbertos (Joao and Astrud) are three of the bosses of the bossa nova. I want every recording they ever did. This is classical music that many people don't hear very often.

Incredible 11 April 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A man and his guitar. What an incredible duo. It is at once soft, sensual, in a word, incredible! You cannot listen to it only once!
A Wonderful World Indeed 26 July 2014
By K. Coleman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Recently purchased The Wonderful World Of Antonio Carlos Jobim. This remastered release is part of Warner Bros. Master series. Recorded in 1965 with arrangements by Nelson Riddle. Twelve Jobim compositions in all. In my opinion..A Wonderful rediscovered Classic
