The Voice I Love

Sylvia Telles was arguably the most talented Brazilian vocalist of the fifties and sixties and was indeed the first Bossa Nova singer in Brazil. The much-cherished Sylvia Telles dedicated her short career to one man: Antonio Carlos Jobim.
Jobim was the supreme composer of his generation and the admiration was reciprocal with many of these songs being handed directly to her. Invariably Sylvia would then create the definitive version; establishing the exact mood in which these historic compositions should be sung.
Like Margo Guryan and Claudine Longet, Telles is credible with UK indie and both the lighter Bossa Nova audiences and those of the tropicalia movement.
