I’ve long been a fan of Jobim. But, amazingly, I was unfamiliar with this album. I just bought it. I can’t think of Jobim without thinking of Luiz Bonfá and his magnificent song, “Manhã de Carnaval.” I think that is one of the most beautiful melodies ever written. That leads me to think of other beautiful melodies and I jump to Duke Pearson‘s “Cristo Redentor.” The first version of that that I ever heard was on Charlie Musselwhite‘s first album, and to me that will always be the definitive version. And that prompted me to jump to another beautiful melody I first heard around the same time in the middle 60s: “Swallow Song” by Richard and Mimi Fariña. If you guys were to post these, that would be quite something. Thanks for getting my day off to a wonderful start.
That is quite an amazing chain of associations!!!!!!! I will most definitely forward it to Oannes! Thank you for this …and yes, I agree with you. 🙏
We listened to Jobim last night while making and having dinner. See the effect of the two of you have on us?!
Awwww…… that is very sweet and I’m so happy to hear that! Music… if only people listened to more music* wouldn’t the world be a better place?! 😉
*good music! 😉

One of my favorite albums. But still, there’s Charlie Musselwhite. A completely different take. It’s possible to like them both equally because they’re so different.
Yes, it is possible! 😉
It’s one of Charlie‘s signature tunes.
Did you know that the Blues Brothers got the idea of bringing the harps out on stage in a briefcase from Charlie Musselwhite?
I didn’t know about BB and the briefcase origin! 😉
