Re-mastering has produced a good clear sound on this MP3 download. Should imagine the CD or higher quality (FLAC) would be excellent. The track listing gives a nice smooth and relaxing listening experience.
Congratulations, Verve finally made a good remaster of the old Carlos Jobin classics. I have bought numerous CD releases and this copy is one of the best. All the original releases like the famous "The Girl From Ipanema", "Wave", "Triste", Desafinado" and many other are very well restored giving full frequency and dynamic range to the music. Die-hards like myself will not be disappointed with the CD since the original vinyl released in 1963, worth the wait!
