Barnes & Noble - Steve Futterman
The Brazilian songs of Antonio Carlos Jobim, Luis Bonfa, and other prominent bossa nova-era composers draw singers to them like a siren's call. And why not? Their gorgeous melodies, ingenious chord progressions and swaying, sensuous rhythms are unlike any other; in the right hands, these songs just take wings and soar. One of our greatest vocalists, Rosemary Clooney approaches this tropical repertoire with a zest and vigor that belies her age, but with interpretive powers that can only come with experience. She takes on some of the best of the best. Jobim has pride of place with eight classics including "Wave," "Girl From Ipanema," here called, "The Boy From ...

Barnes & Noble - Steve Futterman
The Brazilian songs of Antonio Carlos Jobim, Luis Bonfa, and other prominent bossa nova-era composers draw singers to them like a siren's call. And why not? Their gorgeous melodies, ingenious chord progressions and swaying, sensuous rhythms are unlike any other; in the right hands, these songs just take wings and soar. One of our greatest vocalists, Rosemary Clooney approaches this tropical repertoire with a zest and vigor that belies her age, but with interpretive powers that can only come with experience. She takes on some of the best of the best. Jobim has pride of place with eight classics including "Wave," "Girl From Ipanema," here called, "The Boy From Ipanema", "Once I Loved" and "Dindi." The remaining tracks glisten with such gems as, Bonfa's "A Day In the Life of a Fool," Baden Powell's "Let Go," Mendonca's "Desafinado" and Cole Porter's "I Concentrate on You" Clooney's tribute to Sinatra, who recorded the song on his first collaboration with Jobim. Clooney sounds as fresh and invigorated as usual, but she does have some help from some acclaimed admirers. John Pizzarelli plays fleet and sensitive guitar throughout and duets on a few tunes; Diana Krall joins Clooney for a playful "Boy From Ipanema." The Brazilian sunshine that these special songs bring adds light to this project's every note.
All Music Guide - Paula Edelstein
As one of the most loved jazz vocalists, modern jazz heroines, and prolific vocalists, Rosemary Clooney gives a very beautiful and feminine side to Brazilian jazz on Brazil, a sensitive musical feeling of 16 ripe standards. This wonderful collection is dedicated to Antonio Carlos Jobim, Frank Sinatra, and Nelson Riddle through her amazing ambience of sensitive phrasing, lovely nuance, and splendid rhythmic shadings. Rosemary Clooney is joined by the lovely Diana Krall on "Boy from Ipanema" in a stunning vocal duet accompanied by Oscar Castro-Neves on guitar. John Pizzarelli sings "Wave," with the light, airy brilliance of a light kept burning throughout the night, and duets with Clooney on "Desafinado," "One Note Samba," "Let Go," "Dindi," and the reprise of the title track, "Brazil." Together they bring a redefined sensitivity and captivation to these Brazilian standards through their excellent harmony and melodic concepts. The songs included on Brazil display the musical integrity, wisdom, and depth of Rosemary Clooney on songs that have withstood the test of popular culture and time.
