AllMusic Review by

Concord Jazz's astute compilation of Antonio Carlos Jobim tunes rendered by its roster's artists includes a new reading of "The Girl from Ipanema" by Charlie Byrd, a nice modern reading of "Só Danço Samba," Ali Ryerson's gorgeous take on "Zingaro," and Susannah McCorkle's burning tempo on "A Felicidade (Happiness)." Not for the hardcore purists, but then nothing is but the real thing.
