Recorded In Rio De Janerio
Label: Rhino Atlantic
One of the best of the first wave bossa nova records, this collects an early session that Jobim did with Joao Gilberto and another one that he did with bossa convert Herbie Mann. Add in guitarist Baden Powell on a couple of the Mann cuts and you've practically got a complete portrait of the new musical style being created in Rio. Forget the beach, this is rainy day music.
