Born in Bahia, Brazil, singer/song writer Joao Gilberto (1931-2019) was a true legend of bossa nova. While Antonio Carlos Jobim set the standard for the creation of bossa nova in the mid-’50s, with songs like “The Girl From Ipanema” and “Desafinado”, it was Gilberto who brilliantly reimagined and, arguably, defined the genre.
This edition includes the complete contents of the album Brazil’s Brilliant Joao Gilberto, which received a five-star rating from AllMusic, plus several of his greatest hits from his early years.
“This vitally important record introduced Joao Gilberto, Antonio Carlos Jobim and thus, bossa nova to the United States in 1961, a year before Stan Getz scored a hit with ‘Desafinado’.”- AllMusic (Richard S. Ginell), 5 STARS.
