Bola Sete (guitar), Sebastiao Neto (bass), Paulinho Da Costa (drums).

Composed by Duke Ellington


Recorded: Monterey, California. September 1966


Rating: 80/100 (learn more)

Id have given this track a higher mark if not for the inferior quality of this recording. This marvelous bossa nova reading of the Ellington gem is a bonus track omitted from the original LP. I for one am usually grateful when bonus materials surface regardless of the quality (up to a point). Sete has long been one of my favorite guitarists and his dazzling technique is very much present here. Please note: the other re- released material on this disc is in much better shape than this.
