This disc offers instrumental interpretations of some of Jobim's most famous compositions from the salad days of the early '60s Bossa Nova craze. It's also one of the earliest examples of Jobim's long-standing and fruitful collaboration with arranger Claus Ogerman. Trademarks like Jobim's single-note piano style, the accompanying flute melodies and Ogerman's arranging techniques (unison string parts, the bass clarinet underpinnings in "How Insensitive") would decorate Jobim's music for the next two decades. Similarly representative are the authentic Bossa Nova guitar and drums, subtle variations of which occur on each tune. Throughout the recording, Jobim's songs are powerful enough for the melodies to stand up even sans lyrics.
