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.
