AllMusic Review by

This double-disc collection rounds up some of the most representative moments in the history of recorded bossa nova music for a wonderful one-stop sampler of the style. Each of the featured performers is an accomplished artist, examples being Antonio Carlos Jobim, Caetano, Veloso, and Gilberto Gil. If you're a casual bossa nova listener and just want a convenient, one-stop collection of the best of the best, look no further. Or even if you're already a seasoned bossa nova listener with mounds of similar collections, you may still want to consider this particular collection since it's one of the better collections of its kind.
