Critic Richard S. Ginell added the following review about the American edition of the same album (Gilberto’s second LP), which was titled Brazil’s Brilliant João Gilberto: “Here were some of the earliest examples of the fusion between samba and cool jazz, the rhythmic impulse coming from Gilberto’s guitar style and the melodies written for his articulate, intimate voice.
Several Jobim standards-in-waiting –‘One Note Samba’, ‘Corcovado’, ‘Meditation’, ‘Outra Vez’–were heard for the first time in North America on this LP. Not only that, Jobim provided the lightly-seasoned orchestral backings, coming up with counter-melodic ideas for strings, horn and flutes that were integralparts of his compositions (later to be elaborated upon by Claus Ogerman and other arrangers). Shortly after bossa nova took off, this album was reissued on Capitol’s regular pop series as Gilberto and Jobim.”
