"The original master tapes for this title had not been used since 1980 previous to this reissue. Also, for this Analogue Productions reissue the decision was made to master and present this album as it was originally mixed to master tape. With very few exceptions all versions of this title to date, including the original, have had the channels incorrectly reversed. With this version, you'll hear this title as it was intended to be heard, without the channels reveresed."
all versions of this title to date have had the channels incorrectly reversed. And again, those reissues you've heard up until now - definitely still breathy, warm and rich - were made from something less than the master. Prepare to hear the veil removed.
With the exception of Para Machucar Meu Coraçao and Doralice, all the songs were written by Antonio Carlos Jobim.
Astrud Gilberto's unpretentious singing of The Girl From Ipanema and Corcovado is a fine example of sincerity in musical expression.
She sings both songs in English. João Gilberto's authoritative singing of the other songs in Portuguese remains to this day, the essence of bossa nova. His phrasing on Desafinado is delicate. On So Danço Samba, his guitar-playing is simply marvelous.
Stan Getz's superb solos bring each song to musical heights. Listen to his closing notes on O Grande Amor. Don't they tear right into your soul? The unassuming Jobim plays a brief but beautiful piano solo on Corcovado. Tommy Williams (bass) and Milton Banana (drums) provide the steady rhythm without overpowering the music.
