AllMusic Review by Stephen Cook

Bookended with two vintage interpretations by Jobim’s early musical partner, João Gilberto, this Blue Note tribute shows off the bossa giant’s genius through both classic hard bop-era sides by the likes of Stanley Turrentine (“Wave”) and Grant Green (“Corcovado [Quiet Nights]”) and more modern and expansive interpretations from pianist and compatriot Eliane Elias (jazz-centric takes on “Waters of March [Aquas de Marco]” and “Girl From Ipanema”) and ’80s young Turk Javon Jackson (“Useless Landscape”). The vocal/instrumental mix is further essayed on fine work by Carmen McCrae, guitarist Bireli Lagrene, and pianist Jack Wilson. A respectable and enjoyable salute to one of the top figures of international music.
