Two years after her underrated album on CTI Records, Astrud Gilberto's follow-up is her first attempt to be taken seriously, not as a singer -- she had that covered -- but as a songwriter, at a time when simply singing standards was seen as lacking. Her four songs on this ten-song album show she has a way with a melody, though obviously influenced by countrymen Milton Nascimento and Jorge Ben, and her producer Eumir Deodato. "Gingele" and "Zigy Zigy Za" are exactly the kind of riff-based tropicalismo that Ben and company were making popular around this time. "Take It Easy My Brother Charlie" is probably her best song here (covered over 20 years later by Kahimi Karie), though ...

"Take It Easy My Brother Charlie" is probably her best song here (covered over 20 years later by Kahimi Karie), though it is Ben who often gets the writing credit (here it's listed as Gilberto and associate producer David Jordan). Very few concessions are made to America; only "Daybreak (Walking Out of Yesterday)" comes from the pop world, with instrumentation and sound coming from south of the equator.

    I have been searching for this song for 23 years

    I first learned and touched by this song when I was young, my moms dedicated song for my dad. I play classic jazz eversince 8 yrs old plucking Astrud's Certain Sadness. Eversince then I became a heavy Brazilian music lover, immitating the guitar how Joao Gilberto play and similar bossanova guitarist. "Where Have You Been" is a humble expression of sentiments. Merely just the melody itself brings me to my own world of enchantments, where extreme meaning of love and loss, happiness and sadness, is defined at its utmost expression of heart, soul and mind in perfect harmony. Learning to play guitar with this song will truly make you forget for a while the cares of the world, and in peace with yourself.
