If you like the unique melodies of Jobin's Bossa Nova you must have to this album. All the unforgettable tunes like "The girl from Ipanema" and "Out of tune" played with a special feeling like only jazz masters like Stan Getz and Dizzi Gillespie can play. Definitely a must !

An excellent collection of Tom Jobim covers. The track "Girl from Ipanema" is probably my least favourite. Only because I've heard it soooo many times, and Asturd Gilberto sings in that little lost voice of hers, and she CAN'T sing. But there are loads of other great tracks. Sarah Vau-vau-vau-Vaughan has trouble getting started on "Quite Nights" but all ends well, Billy Eckstine sings the definative version of "A Felicidade", and Oscar Petersons version of "Wave" is fabulous. Joao Gilberto, Dizzy Gillespie, Luiz Bonfa, Stan Getz and Charlie Byrd, well, just great.

Magico! Jobim is treated with rightful respect in this compilation of marvellous melody. The rhythms are as nature intended and every track paints a picture - well worth adding to the collection, makes the case for the annihilation of every modern-day-sickly-hispanic crooner, After all, if it ain't broke, why fix it?!
