The legendary Ol' Blue Eyes sings the Bossa Nova icon's compositions and does more than justice to his songs. His interpretations are awesomely beautiful and incredibly enchanting. He covers these songs with utmost confidence considering that these songs are not his normal repertoire. In my opinion, this is one of Sinatra's finest albums ever recorded. With A.C. Jobim and one of my favorite conductors/arrangers, Claus Ogerman in the picture, what more can you ask for?

Sylvia Telles is one of the great treasures of the original Brasilian bossa nova movement. She loved Jobim and over half of her recorded songs are penned by him. However, on this effort she sings many American standards in English (in which she was fluent) and many Marcos Valle/ Paulo Valle songs (only one Jobim)in her native Portuguese. Her upbeat clear lyrical voice stays in front of the accompanying simple understated musical arrangements. The entire album is superb.

Antonio Carlos Jobim, Brazilian composer of such popular songs at "Desafinado" and "The Girl From Ipanema," derived his unmistakable songwriting style from a very personal sense of melody and harmony, the magnificent songwriting traditions of Brazil, the rhythm of the samba, and American jazz. The Composer of "Desafinado", Plays was the LP Jobim created when the bossa nova wave hit the US. It showcases his own piano with string accompaniment (with results far different from the bossa nova efforts of Stan Getz, Joao Gilberto, et al). Remastered from the original three-track tape, Jobim's greatest songs are now in their best sound.
