Limited Edition 180g Vinyl! Pressed at Pallas in Germany!

This Teo Macero production from 1965 finds the extraordinary acoustic guitarist Charlie Byrd beautifully interpreting the timeless Brazilian jazz music of bossa nova giant Antonio Carlos Jobim with string, brass, and woodwind accompaniment tastefully arranged by Tommy Newsom. In addition to Jobim's well known material like "The Girl from Ipanema" and "Corcovado," the melodic and evocative 12-song set includes Byrd's sophisticated takes on the ethereal pieces "Dindi," "O Amor Em Paz" and "Someone to Light Up My Life (Se Todos Fossem Iguais A Voce)."

The arrangements by Tommy Newsom for strings, brass, and woodwinds may be a bit sweet and the 12 performances may be overly concise (often under three minutes), but the resulting music is strangely pleasing. Acoustic guitarist Charlie Byrd always had a strong affinity for Brazilian jazz, and he sticks exclusively to Antonio Carlos Jobim songs during this tasteful and melodic effort. Truly beautiful music.
