Overview

Unlike other volumes in Verve's Pure Bossa Nova series, which focus the spotlight on artists with few good compilations outside Brazil, the disc on Antonio Carlos Jobim has dozens of rivals. And at 14 songs, it's a rather brief collection compared to the best. Still, it includes his best versions of his standards "Wave," "Corcovado," and "Vivo Sonhando" (all recorded in the '60s), along with representations of his later days in the '70s and '80s. Of the 14 tracks, only ten are from Jobim himself, the others being his songs recorded by Gal Costa, Sylvia Telles, and Caetano Veloso (who appears twice).
