Notes


This album, along with "Tide", are in my opinion, the best recordings Jobim ever made. This album is very similar to "Tide", which was recorded only a few months earlier. Again, Eumir Deodato proves he is an arranger of vast and rare talent, enhancing Jobim's always-beautiful compositions with instrumentation that is rich, dense, and always original. The whole album is excellent, with each successive track providing a slightly different musical journey and variations on instrumentation. A few of the pieces are rather dark, but really interesting.
The highlight of the album is Children's Games" provide lighter and really melodic lines..

Ary Barroso's "Brazil" (or "Aquarela do Brazil"). The steady, unrelenting beat of the percussion section is a listening delight in itself. Jobim's straight, no-frills playing and singing bring out the melodic simplicity and beauty of this Barroso classic

The lyrical and haunting "Amparo" showcases Jobim's gift for writing beautiful melodies. Reminiscent of a Schubert Impromptu, its delicate melody underlies a rather complicated left-hand part that gives the piece its mellifluous quality.
Also "Tereza, My Love"
The usual cast of top-notch jazz and session players are included, like Ron Carterm Hubert Laws, as well as Airto and a few more ace Brazilian and american instrumentalists. Overall a supremely substantial album full of fresh sounds and great compositions- all very well produced and well recorded
