Antonio Carlos Jobim, one of the main architects of Brazilian music, finds himself in great company on this highly underrated album. Accompanied by fellow Brazilian Eumir Deodato, who did all of the arrangements, Jobim wrote this song for his wife, Tereza. It's a very open and free-flowing song that sounds like you should be enjoying the amenities of the beach in Rio De Janeiro. Urbie Green provides a great opening trombone line, and Herbert Laws follows with a flute line that creates an urgent sense of utopia. Ron Carter is also perfectly comfortable playing this light bossa nova.
