João Gilberto and Tom Jobim are parents of style 'Bossa nova', whose guitar and vocal technique deserves. João during his career has released over thirty recordings and special appearances with other artists. This CD is one of the latest study recordings published by the author, in this case directed and produced by Caetano Veloso. The album, which includes ten songs of famous authors such as Tom Jobim or the same Caetano Veloso, is a return of João to their early classics of bossa nova and a tribute to the music of his youth.
Having reunited for 1976's The Best of Two Worlds, saxophonist Stan Getz and Brazilian singer/guitarist João Gilberto celebrated the album's release with a week of shows at San Francisco's Keystone Corner. Marking over a decade since the pair had made history with 1964's landmark Getz/Gilberto album, the shows, which took place between May 11-16, 1976, would prove one of the rare times they appeared live together. Resonance Records' 2016 album, Getz/Gilberto '76 (and the separate release Moments in Time), documents these shows via live recordings made by Keystone Korner club owner Todd Barkan.
