5-0 out of 5 stars Timeless chic !!!
This 1963 album is one of the best examples of flawless bossa nova music to date. Stan Getz playing the saxophone, Joao Gilberto on guitar and Antonio Carlos Jobim on piano blend simultaneously into a uniquely talented trio of musicians as their hearts and minds create one exquisite song after another.
5-0 out of 5 stars Does Getz Get Any Better?
This is truly a classic Stan Getz album. His rich, distinctive tenor sax sound melts into the bossa nova beat as if he hadinvented it. Getz's smooth collaboration with Joao Gilberto, Astrud Gilberto, and Antonio Carlos Jobim produce silky, sensuous melodics on every track. This is a must-have for the longtime Getz fan or anyone who has just discovered the legendary 60's bossa nova genre.

I loved Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou.I saw the movie three times while it was in theaters and still could not get enough.Seu Jorge's character brought so much to the movie and I was a little disappointed that the soundtrack did not have all of his versions of our beloved David Bowie.The Bowie songs are great.The Jorge songs are great.I could listen to either one for hours on end and still not get sick of hearing them.Knowing the Bowie versions well also is a thrill when you hear this album because it surprises your ears with unexpected turns in tone and acoustic sounds.A definite necessity for any beach BBQ, I highly recommend this album.

I love acoustic guitar and my husband is 100% portuguese so what could be better. I doesn't hurt that I love David Bowie too. Seu Jorge's voice is hauntly beautiful and the songs are great. Since I don't speak portuguese I don't know how close the translation is but the songs are still great. We played the CD at work for weeks. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Magical, multi-faceted global journey.
True to its intriguing and provocative title, Lee Ritenour's latest CD "Smoke 'N' Mirrors" takes listeners on a magical, multi-faceted global journey unlike any other in the legendary guitarist's three decade, nearly 40 album career.
5-0 out of 5 stars Lee in 2006
I've been listening to Lee Ritenour since the early 80's and love most everything he has done. This CD brings back some memories of older days which frankly I prefer and the sound quality is amazing. Several of the songs are dashboard banging upbeat tunes that are very unique, uplifting and infectous. Highly recomend. My only question to Lee is when are you going to tour again??

4-0 out of 5 stars Smoke`n`mirrors
Well, pretty good album, but for a long time Rit fan there are a better ones! The last song on the album reminds me of an old GRP sound, but for me there is always a question of (modern) production... For instance, I am very pleased to hear Fender Rhodes keyboard on a few songs, but this modern drum production sounds so shallow and therefore the whole song sound (the songs are great) is shallow too! Anyway, a solid 4! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars danceable upbeat fun
my sisters listened to sergio mendez and brazil 66 when i was growing up, and i loved their music.now in 2006, this album proves his style, talent and genius are indeed "timeless".highly recommned this cd.every song is uniquely great.

2-0 out of 5 stars "The fusion will never fail"(???)
Brazilian music is my favorite genre. From the wild creativity of Chico Cesar to the electric stylings of the late Suba,from the soulful bossa nova of Bebel Gilberto to the bossa nova-meets-Indian classical of Ana Rita Simonka,I've found Brazilian popular music joyous&diverse.After all,I grew up listening to Sergio Mendes&Brasil '66!I was subtly enchanted by his songs.So,I was curious about "Timeless",since it's prominent at many a Starbucks.
5-0 out of 5 stars ALBUM OF THE YEAR; BRILLIANT COLLABORATION; STUNNING RESULTS!
To be clear, I am a big Sergio Mendes fan.I have always appreciated his musical sensibilities: smooth, sophisticated, eclectic.Perhaps the original "world music purveyor." I have derived enjoyment from every one of his musical incarnations/combinations, through the sixties, seventies, and beyond.

Editorial Review

A bridge between bossa nova and 1960s pop, Sergio Mendes' music was easy listening, vaguely psychedelic pop, light jazz, and bossa nova all rolled into one. Mendes and Brasil '66 (which featured Mendes on keyboards and a revolving cast of two female vocalists, bass, guitar, drums and percussion) had a number of hits from the mid-'60s to the early-1970s that are included here. Getting his professional start playing and arranging for Antonio Carlos Jobim and Joao Gilberto, Mendes typically filled out his proper albums with updated versions of popular songs written by the Brazilian masters as well as some of his own tunes ­ his tunes "Look Around" and "So Many Stars" are included. But this collection really surveys his interpretations of pop tunes of the day, some of which were never hits for Mendes. The small combo's light touch and rich vocal harmonies make for pleasant if kitschy covers of hits like the Beatles' "Fool On The Hill" and "Day Tripper," Burt Bacharach's "The Look Of Love," and others. ­ Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A welcome blast from the past.
Some of the cuts on "Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66--Greatest Hits" sound as fresh as they did 40 years ago. Others sound dated, though charmingly so. The Brazilian originals fare best--"Mais Que Nada" is guaranteed to get your hips and your day swinging, and "Like a Lover" is incredibly sexy, soothing, and mellow. The pop standards are more a matter of taste, though "The Look of Love" is still one of the best recordings ever of any Bacharach-David song. Occasionally an otherwise impeccable cut will betray its vintage; the lovely bossa nova tune "So Many Stars" is marred by a brief harpsichord solo, reminding us all why the harpsichord craze of the '60s did not survive the decade. One thing that mars this CD is the lack of any songwriter credits--I guess A&M assumes everyone knows who wrote these songs, but it would still be nice to have the credits! I'm glad Mendes is having renewed success with his recent collaboration with rap artists, but I'm of a generation that will be happy sticking with this CD.

4-0 out of 5 stars Lively beats and beautiful melodies
Glad I found this blast from the past.While I've tired of hearing Beatles songs I don't get tired of their versions.And "Like a Lover" is one of my favorite lovesongs.Wish there

5-0 out of 5 stars A remarkable collaboration
Ten songs, ten perfect reasons to love this work. Each gentleman obviously had a fecund career of his own; yet, this effort represents a singular achievement in its own right. Too often when two legends come together they remain too much within their own realms of comfort (or ego) to make the effort genuinely worthwhile. Not so here. Both were willing to make concessions, forfeit a little of his own persona and adopt some of the other's in order to create a unique and extraordinary album. In fact, there are a couple instances it is difficult which one is singing, so seamless is their melding. Sinatra is at his sweetest and most plaintive. Jobim eases into American popular music effortlessly. The gorgeous orchestration by Claus Olgerman pulls together the production superbly. The result is a masterwork that sounds like neither a typical Sinatra album nor a typical Jobim album. The fifth track, "Meditation," summarizes these songs rather well: put on the CD, relax and lose yourself in this one.

5-0 out of 5 stars Sinatra at his best
This is great music sung by a great voice in his prime. It is soft,yet very sensual music. Sinatra and Jobim are quite a pairing!

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply marvelous
With all the booze and the broads ,mr tough guy comes out and throws everybody for a loop(well, maybe not everybody) with a quiet, sensitive masterpiece."Once I Loved" is absolutely spellbinding and along with a fabulous Jobim,here we have one of ole blue eyes best.To all you tough guys out there,you`re not so tough. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars pleasant samba carioca
This CD is not similar to any of MM's previous albums because it consists solely of samba carioca.There are no emotionally charged or heart-wrenching MPB songs.But this is samba carioca and one shouldn't expect such an atmosphere.As is, it is a very well recorded samba album and, most importantly, is well-suited for dancing samba.Also, please note that MM has sung plenty of samba carioca throughout her career to good effect.For example, see Para Ver As Meninas from her album Memorias, Cronicas, e Declaracoes de Amor, a lovely samba that would fit in very well on this album.Recommended for those who enjoy samba carioca.

2-0 out of 5 stars A disapointment
If "Dreamer" was a masterpiece, "Around the city" is a disapointment. Ms. Elias should walk in the right side: just jazz. She shouldn't try a "mainstream" album, trying to be "funny" instead the usual talented piano artist as she is. Perhaps was a trick from the marketing people, "Eliane, goes to some accesible to the masses". But for Eliane's old friends this doesn't work. Go back to old ways, dear Eliane.

3-0 out of 5 stars She's so much better than this
I've followed Eliane from her early days with Steps Ahead, and I think she's fabulous.She carved out a whole class for herself by merging the passion, melody and irresistible harmonic forms of her native Brazilian music with the high energy and edge of New York City jazz.Her total mastery and deft compositional intuition in the resulting form are nothing short of astonishing.As a pianist, composer and arranger working this vein, she has no peers.
5-0 out of 5 stars Supurb!!
This has to be some of the best music I've heard in a long while. It wasn't my first impression, this cd is quite a departure from her previous music (originally jazz piano), and the first couple of tracks seem to jump from one style to another (each individually supurb), but, after a couple of listens, you lose all your preconceived notions of who Eliane Elias is supposed to be and just go with it - and what a great place she takes you to - great bossa, great rhythms .... supurb !! ...

Her father may be the legendary Brazilian guitarist Joao Gilberto, but in 2000 daughter Bebel proved that she understands the bossa nova, too. There's a subtlety throughout this recording that makes Bebel's voice entrancing, as she re-creates the sensual essence of bossa nova before running with it into electronic territory toward the album's end.

I know little about Brazilian music, Bossa Nova or Latin music in general, but I really like this. This is the most beautiful non English speaking music I have ever heard. The perfect intro to contemporary Brazillian tunes. Bebel is relaxed jazz stuff with upbeat sounds, different from the everyday music you normally hear. I just finished reading a few of the negative reviews and I just don't understand them. This CD is one of the few that I own where all the songs are really great. This album brings together so many different musical styles, but it doesn't feel contrived or over produced. The elements and songs flow so smoothly, effortlessly. "August Day Song" is a sexy, song with deep Afro-Cuban beats and sounds like a hot summers day. My favorite CD at the moment.

Stan Getz is in this sax player's opinion the best jazz saxophone player that has ever been recorded. His sense of melody is superb. He hides his amazing technical prowess, makes it sound effortless, and never gets in the way of the melody. Nobody else even came close to his melodic improvisations.

According to information readily available in the CD booklet, Jazz Samba was "Recorded in Pierce Hall, All Souls Unitarian Church, Washington, D.C., February 13, 1962." Not in a studio! That accounts for the warmth of the recording. It remains the standard against which all else is measured. ... Read more

This is Jobim's finest album, although Stone Flower and Tide are certainly worth checking out.The songwriting on this album is sublime, the arrangements are brilliant and the execution is flawless.The melodies are minimal, yet strikingly elegant: they are small but very effective, impressionistic tone poems, each exquisite in its own right.

Editorial Review

Move over bossa nova! There's a new beat coming out of Brazil in the form of Cansei de Ser Sexy (Portuguese for "Tired of Being So Sexy"), and it's raucous. CSS consists of six 20-something São Paulistas who are injecting some international exuberance into the Seattle-based Sub Pop label. The only inkling that the group hails from the Southern Hemisphere is the smattering of Brazilian-tinged Portuguese that peppers the album, along with a barely detectable accent in lead singer Lovefoxxx's delivery. The CSS sound is far from traditional folksy world music; rather, it's a mishmash of '80s new wave, electronica, danceable beats, and cheeky lyrics (which are just a bit naughty). Think Berlin and Blondie, with a dash of Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Muffin Spencer of Brassy. This largely female group (all women except the drummer) will have you running to the dance floor in your slouchy boots and skinny jeans faster than you can say "Let's Make Love and Listen to Death from Above"--the first single from the album.

Female vocals w/attitude (like a bouncy version of Shirley Manson), retro synths, catchy guitar riffs and melodies, very danceable, extremely listenable, addiction to this album is inevitable. I can understand why they opened up for ladytron, though my guess is that they probably stole the show. As I get older it seems harder and harder to find music I like that's not derivative or makes me say "they sound exactly like _fill_in_80s_90s_band_ wannabes". This is not one of those bands. You'll find yourself singing to their songs (even though some of them are in Portugese). Fav tracks: Bezzi, Superafim, Let's Make Love And Listen Death From Above.

5-0 out of 5 stars Suprise album of the year
This album is great.I was suprised when on picked it up how much I would really learn to love this album.It's great.

5-0 out of 5 stars Hot!!!
This cd is truly amazing!I am totally addicted to it.I do warn you that the songs are almost too catchy to the point of not being able to get them out of your head.This band reminds me a lot of bratmobile.If you are looking for a really fun new band, this is it! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars You Take This In the Car, To Remind You Why You Cuddle To Her At Home
Astrud Gilberto may be the most romantic singer Brazil has ever yielded up. She's certainly the most pleasing to hear, whether the setting is a small group or an orchestra, whether it's pure bossa or jazz-inclining pop with the subtle embellishments of her native country. Put her in front of a Stan Getz quartet, a Gil Evans orchestra, a Walter Wanderley organ trio, or even a James Last ensemble, and she evokes a faraway beach that is at once as accessible as the sun and as elusive as the perfect wave. Which is just about what she has been herself in her musical personality---at the moment you think she has reached forth to touch you, she fades back and away at the moment you reach forth to touch her back, as if the yearning she so often exposes requires so much more profound touch to satisfy that you envy without shame the one who wins her love.
5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing!!!!I want more!!!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Bossa Nova rocks
This cd was the first of many brazilian bossa novas I've bought.I heard the Girl from Ipanema on a complilation jazz cd and was hooked then.I don't aggree w/ the above reviewers who don't like the orchestral arrangements?Are you nuts?This album is fantastic!Its actually two albums, and I love every song. I grew up listening to mostly r/b and this style is second only to that for me.
4-0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece PLUS a great album
As many reviewers have said, tracks 9-14 are worth the price of the album.These tracks are simply astonishing.I first heard three or four of them over the internet and on various mix CDs that my friends had.I was drawn to "Aquarela do Brasil" and "Disse Alguem" especially, and you could tell that it was the same session.I told myself I had to find such an album.(You see Mr. Record Company, many file sharers do go out and buy CDs!)5-0 out of 5 stars Yes, Joao Gilberto Singing
I've heard that Mr. Gilberto, being very shy and a little strange, would not go into the studio for Amoroso, so they went to his house to record and he sang and played in his pajamas.Then Claus came along and added the quite wonderful arrangements afterwards.Perhaps that explains the slight out of synch feel.Read more

Editorial Review

With its amazing mix of Portuguese, African, and Indian musical genres, dances, and instruments, Brazil's pop scene is unique because so much of it is acoustic.This disc is a pleasing potpourri of mostly non-electronic tunes sung by some famous and not-so-famous artists.Of course, the Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Brazilian Brilliance
Putumayo has never gone wrong with its Brazilian compilations.Like "Brasileiro",its first Brazilian compilation,this album is focused on the country's acoustic music.This album is reflective,relaxing,and at times bittersweet,like dark chocolate.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great music
I got this CD to dance my 8 month old baby to sleep -- it worked great for that. I've heard it so many times, but I love it everytime, and it keeps getting better. Track 4 is my favorite at the moment!

5-0 out of 5 stars Sure, it's got sambas, though not the more upbeat ones.....
.....but still very fun and relaxful to listen to and enjoy. This is a nice set of low-key sambas, bossa nova, and acoustic guitar melodies which makes you feel more at ease with yourself (and sung in Portuguese, one of the world's most musical languages, even if you don't understand a word of it).

5-0 out of 5 stars Awsome musicianship, NOT too sweet or unvaried
I almost didn't buy this because of the comments about Tina's voice being too sweet and the songs sounding the same.A sweet soprano could sound irritating if not well trained and sensitive to the music.This is NOT the case with Ms. Malia. She breathes new life into old stand-bys like Rockaby Baby, which I didn't expect to want to hear twice.She uses her voice as an instrument and works to create subtle and enchanting effects with the accompaniment - particularly striking are the pennywhistle and the sax. And as for the songs, the arrangements are wonderfully varied.It's SO much better than the Disney lullaby cd I also bought, on which so many of the songs are so synth-saturated that even with different singers they do sound the same.
2-0 out of 5 stars Sticky Sweet
Not my favorite.Tina Malia's voice is a little too sticky sweet for my taste, and every song sounds alike.

5-0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended - A Great CD
We bought 3 Lullaby CDs for our infant son. This is the best

5-0 out of 5 stars Great listening
This is truly a profound listening experence. Part Bosa Nova and a little electronica. Interesting arrangements. I am a music lover and this will not disapoint.

5-0 out of 5 stars Famous First Daughter Sings Again
"Bebel Gilberto" is a worthy follow-up to "Tanto Tempo." "Tanto Tempo" had a more electric feel because of the production by the late genius Suba.
5-0 out of 5 stars Incredibly smooth, melodic, and soothing!
I was walking through Best Buy when I heard one of the songs from this CD playing on the store stereo system. I liked the sound so much that I stopped shopping just to listen, and then I made someone in the store track down the title of that artist and the album that the song was on! Because the song was not in English, it took a while, but it was worth it. I bought the CD immediately. I love her sound so much! If only I enjoyed all the CDs in my collection this much. I would recommend this CD to those who like the sounds of Norah Jones, Joss Stone, maybe even Buena Vista Social Club or other latin jazz artists. It's rhythmic, peaceful, and soulful all at once. Just beautiful. ... Read more
