5.0 out of 5 stars A classic, nicely done with a very informative booklet 22 Mar. 2010
By Violonista Canhoto - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is the soundtrack from the film that introduced Bossa Nova to the USA in 1959. Its famous songs are Manha de Carnaval ("Morning of Carnival" [Rio de Janeiro's annual carnaval], known in its English version as "Day in the Life of a Fool") and A Felicidade (Happiness). Both themes run through the film repeatedly sung and played on guitar. Both are haunting and memorable and ingenious melodies. And there is enough "batucada" (the compelling, in-your-face complex drum jams that fill the time of Carnaval) to satisfy anyone who loves this part of Brazilian music. The booklet is written with great intelligence and care and gives a lot of background. Recording quality is remarkable, especially considering that some is from the film's optical soundtrack. I bought both this soundtrack CD and the Criterion Collection DVD, which I recommend, b/c seeing the video gives the music its proper context. The composers and performers of this music are Brazilian legends. If you are seriously into Brazilian music, this is a great soundtrack CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reliving a joyous memory 20 Mar. 2013
By C. Dale W. Angney - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I heard this performed at Dizzie's Club Coca Cola in NYC right after the release of this CD. I was entranced by the music, the musicianship and the singing. This CD brings back the sheer joy of that evening. But you don't have to have gone to Dizzie's to enjoy this--over and over. Mattas reinterprets some of the most beautiful movie music ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great rendition of a true classic 16 Feb. 2014
By Design Fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
IMHO Black Orpheus is a real classic of Brazilian music. It takes us back to 'the beginning'. The music is extraordinary. The original film, French version, was also exceptional.
This disc retains the flavor of those early Brazilian moves from samba to bossa and jazz influence. Well worth it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very much recommend 22 Sept. 2014
By Amy Lamborn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Phenomal item. I like it even better than the original soundtrack of Black Orpheus, which is actually often jarring and irritating, whereas this is highly listenable, with very creative renditions of the musical themes. Very much recommend.
