  1. 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.
