Stunning example of late 60's Bossa-Pop served up U.S. style by the Verve label. Great on every level. Superb songwriting. Excellent guitar work & vocals by Luiz. The icing on this already amazing session is Sivuca on accordion & scat vocals, so please listen for his work here. Not one wrong move on this session & that's the electric bass replacing the upright for this very fresh update of what Brasilian Jazz should sound like in 1967. This has real magic, charm & innocence. A light breeze of a session. Sway in the palms with Luiz, Sivuca & gang. Enjoy!

P.S. Japanese Issue here & nicely re-mastered. This would sit nicely next to "Samba '68" by Marcos Valle for fans of that Verve session.
