Great music with the voice and guitar of Joao Gilberto but rather overpowered at times by the string arrangements which I believe were added later. Great arrangers in Claus Ogerman (Amoroso) and Johnny Mandel whose writing I love (Brasil) but Gilberto sounded best on stripped back albums when he started out. The second album on the disc Brasil is revered in Brazil as it features the music of Bahia rather than the more familiar songs out of Rio but as an introduction to the Bossa sound you are better off with the original pared back sound of the first albums - The Boss of the Bossa Nova.

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.

Thanks for advising me about Amoroso/Brazil I can't understand why I have never come across either of these recordings before. I look forward to many happy hours of listening to the wonderful sounds.
