5.0 out of 5 stars Smooth, melodic, intimate February 9, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Outstanding collection of romantic tracks from the giants of Verve's roster. No surprises really among the selections, but who wants a jarring surprise in the middle of a romantic interlude? This set goes down so nicely it won't matter that you may have most these tracks in so many other anthologies.

1. Vivo Sonhando - Stan Getz And Joao Gilberto
2. Wave - Antonio Carlos Jobim
3. Shadow Of Your Smile - Astrud Gilberto
4. Corcovado (Quiet Nights Of Quiet Stars) - Stan Getz And Laurindo Almeida
5. My Foolish Heart - Astrud Gilberto
6. Amor Em Paz - Antonio Carlos Jobim
7. Misty Roses - Astrud Gilberto
8. Desafinado - Antonio Carlos Jobim
9. So Nice (Summer Samba) - Astrud Gilberto And Walter Wanerley

The music on this album is smooth and inviting. The perfect music to play as a background for a cocktail party - or for intimate moments with the one you love. Even in the coldest temperatures, this album will warm you up!

5.0 out of 5 stars "UHP! I'M AN IDIOT." April 16, 2007
Format:Audio CD
The last time I went home to Los Angeles - (You remember, I told you THAT story in my review for the Huffy Good Vibrations Men's 24-Inch Cruiser Bike. Are you paying attention here, or not?) - I called the BITTER BROTHERS and arranged a "Bitter Breakfast." That's a meeting where a bunch of us macho fellas - er, I mean, "Men" - get together to blow off steam over quiche and champagne. Uhm, that is, over Huevos Rancheros and strong, black coffee. (Let's be honest, the "blowing off steam" part could just as easily be called "Male Gossip", but . . . well, you know, I've faked a pretty good masculine facade for myself at Ammyland up to this point, and I'd hate to see it all go to ruin now.)

So, me an' my Bitter Bros were expressing our bitterness at The Sidewalk Café on Venice Beach one morning (perhaps the definitive "L.A. Experience") and observing the Frisbee-catching dogs, the rays-catching one-eighth dressed roller-skating babes, and the usual Carnival of Human Freaks parading past the Café, when I noticed this young cat playing some pretty fancy guitar over yonder. My soul emptied of its bitterness, and my glass emptied of its champa - my cup emptied of its coffee - I went to talk to the young cat and learned that he was a Russian bloke named VADIM, and I bought one of his self-produced compact discs. ["Vadim #1"; vadimrecords at yahoo dot com, or (310) 801-4212]

Well, I eventually just went crazy for track three: "Bossa-Nova." And having heard the term about a zazillion times (that's a lot!), I decided I simply must find out just what BOSSA NOVA really is. So I did an internet search and what I learned is that I have been in love with Bossa Nova music for pretty much my entire life without ever knowing it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Listened to it at a friends house March 18, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I don't have any Bossa Nova music, except for the Astrud Gilberto's Finest Hour, so when I listened to this CD at my friends house I knew I had to get it. It gives you a good representation of the classic Bossa Nova. Good variety of songs by the traditional performers. It is also great soft music to listen to.

5.0 out of 5 stars A gentle collection May 27, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A gentle collection of popular Bossa Nova titles. Well-mixed, and the volume stays consistent across tracks. The only improvement I would make to this collection is to include a vocal version of 'The Girl from Ipanema' (the one on this album is instrumental (but still great)).

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Music! March 21, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Really like the music! The only complaint would be that this order had 2 other CDs on it and two of the three jewel cases were cracked in shipment. Too much of a hassle to return so I kept it. No more CDs for me from Amazon!

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitively romantic February 12, 2014
By Jawpar
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Go see "Woman on Top" - the music will make you fall in love with Penelope Cruz, and Penelope Cruz will make you fall in love with the music!! If you cannot establish and feel the mood with this music, you are truly wooden! Really a nice and representative collection of classic Brazilian Jazz. What's not to like?
