The haunting songs of Brazil's greatest composer are the focus of this impressive gathering of performers. Featured here are Jobim classics such as Desafinado, Dindi, The Girl from Ipanema, Insensatez, So Danca Samba, Dreamer and many others. All the melodies adapt well to the contemporary jazzy idiom of today. The lilting qualities of the music facilitate interpretations of the music which are each different in their own way, with the whole creating a homogenous palate of colors and tonal shadings. The interpretations range from the sensitive vocals of Stacey Kent and Monica Vasconcelos to guitarist Nate Najar, the mellow sax of Jim Tomlinson and pianists Shirley Scott, Hector Martignon and the Brazilian Gilson.
