Introducing the bossa nova in 1959, the original LP plus extras. Appearing effortlessly cultured and crafted, as natural as breath.
From 1958-61, his first three albums. Genius.
Most of the A side is from the historic performance with Stan Getz at Carnegie Hall in 1964; the B originally came as En Mexico — just after JG moved there in 1974 — featuring his classic Farolito, and Besame Mucho.
All his essential early recordings as a leader, including the first three LPs in their entirety, plus rarities like his originals of Manha de Carnaval, O Nosso Amor and A Felicidade, from the sevens.
