This is a brilliant album, but the sound is unfortunately inferior to that of the Brazilian CD version, which bears the original cover and title ("Tom Jobim-Matita Perê"). This version, in comparison, is hiss-filled and not as rich-sounding. That's why it loses a star. Audiophiles are advised to seek out the Brazilian-issued CD instead.

I came across this album in a record store in Frankfurt, Germany back in 1973 or 1974, and bought it primarily because I loved "Mantiqueira Range" so much. After listening to the rest of it a few times I really loved the whole thing. I've been looking for this to come out on CD for years, and I'm glad they finally did it. The music is haunting, wistful, happy...all kinds of things. It's also incurably romantic; great music for having the lights down low...

This is definitely Jobim at his best. On this album from 1973 he introduced one of the loveliest songs ever recorded, Aguas de Marco (Jobim sings it here both in Portugese and English). There are many other favourites, such as lengthy, richly orchestrated piece Cronica de Casa Assassinada or Matita Pere. For those who only know the bossanova side of Jobim this record will be a huge surprise - but what a pleasant one! By all means a classic and a welcome re-release.

It was not long after this LP was released that Coca-Cola used "Aguas de Marco" (Waters of March) for one of its own tv commercials. We are treated to two language versions of that song in this album, along with many other Jobim compositions, all skillfully arranged by Claus Ogerman. I especially enjoyed the film music that is included here. Jobim was a man of many different composing talents, and this album--out of all he recorded--showcases and illustrates this in a perfect way. Definitely a must-have CD for any Jobim fan.

This contains the same numbers as the brazilian album 'Matita Pere', except that there is an english version of 'Aquas De Marco'on this one.
