As the old joke has it, the definition of "songbook" in your dictionary should be accompanied by a photo of Ella Fitzgerald. No one did more than Fitzgerald to codify and disseminate the music of the 20th century's greatest tunesmiths through the Song Book volumes she created with producer Norman Granz, and the pair is in classic form on this collection of gems by Antonio Carlos Jobim. Percussionist and co-producer Paulinho da Costa ensures that the spirit of Brazil is present; Zoot Sims, Clark Terry, and Toots Thielemans add instrumental inspiration; and the First Lady of Song delivers the trademark magic (in English and Portuguese) that lovers of great music in any style can embrace. A track from the original double LP that was omitted from previous CD issues has been restored.

with Clark Terry, Zoot Sims, Oscar Castro-Neves, Joe Pass, Toots Thielemans, Abraham Laboriel, Alex Acuna, Paulinho da Costa, and others
