AllMusic Review by

Antonio Carlos Jobim took intelligent songwriting with beautiful and crafted lyrics and left room for harmonies and a gentle, swaying groove that was a bright blend of jazz and classical, and then layered the whole thing into a samba rhythm, and modern bossa nova was born as Jobim's “The Girl from Ipanema” swept across the globe. This 14-track set from Starbucks Entertainment serves as a soothing introduction to the genre. “The Girl from Ipanema” is here along with other classic and modern bossa nova pieces.
