A great batch of bossa tracks, recorded in Rio with a very authentic sound! Paul Winter
plays alto with all star combos that include Sergio Mendes or Luis Eca on piano, Milton Banana on drums, Luiz Bonfa or Roberto Menescal on guitar, and Carlos Lyra on guitar and vocals. The session's a nice one for Lyra, who gets to act as a "Joao Gilberto-ish" partner to Winter
's "Stan Getz" in this collaboration that's similar to the classic bossa albums on Verve. Titles include "O Morro", "Avion", "Reza", "Vagamente", "Ela E Carioca", "Zomba", "Alem Da Imaginacao", "Voce E Eu", "Maria Ninguem", "De Quem Ama", "Lobo Bobo", and "Tem Do De Mim".
