A true classic. One of the greatest albums ever made. Essential for any record collection. And that’s just me toning it down. Seriously, this is a strikingly great album. The first time I heard it, I remember saying that it was a bit overwhelming. […]

Jobim’s classic jazz ballad “Inútil Paisagem” is very difficult to deliver well, because it requires incredible restraint and emotion.

It closes the album on a stunning high note, leaving nothing to be desired by the listener. […]
