Brazilian vocalist Rosa Passos teams with Ron Carter, whose longstanding affiliation with bossa nova makes for a memorable collaboration. Much of Passos's work celebrates the compositions of the great Brazilian bossa nova composers, as in this track. Paying homage to Joao Gilberto, with echoes of Shirley Horn, Passos delivers a lovely treatment of this lesser-known Jobim ballad. Galvao's inventive arrangement highlights Drewes's tastefully understated clarinet work. Carter's responsive support and Galvao's chordal accompaniment provide the perfect platform for the passionate vocal part, which is one of Vinicius de Moraes's best lyrics.
