This 1976 album by the late saxophonist Stan Getz is a reunion of sorts with Joao Gilberto, the great Brazilian guitarist and singer, and the music of Antonio Carolos Jobim (or Tom Jobim), along with the stylish and noninstrusive arrangements of Oscar Carolos Neves. The trio changed the world in the early 1960s with its Getz/Gilberto albums. With Neves, they almost did it again, but with all the crap falling down around them in the musical climate of the mid-'70s – fusion, disco, overblown rock, and the serious decline of jazz – this disc was critically overlooked at the time. Joining these four men in their realization of modern bossa and samba are drummers Billy Hart and Grady Tate, percussionists Airto, Ray Armando, and Ruben Bassini, bassist Steve Swallow, pianist Albert Daily, and Heliosoa Buarque de Hollanda singing the English vocals as a fill-in for Astrud Gilberto – who was not invited to join this session and would have declined if she were.
