Jobim ao vivo, cheio de humor
Guardada por 23 anos, gravação de show do maestro com seus saborosos comentários chega ao CD

Diário do Nordeste:
Tempo de Jobim
“Tom sentia-se inseguro em relação a sua obra. Sentia vertigens só de falar de dinheiro, contratos e negócios. Ana se preocupava com isso. Em 1990, depois de muito batalhar, Ana conseguiu centralizar toda a obra dele, criando uma editora de música: a Jobim Music. Tom foi aos poucos tranqüilizando. Com sua mulher tomando conta da firma, percebeu que podia viver perfeitamente de seus direitos autorais, sem precisar se desgastar em tantos shows”
Fascínios caseiros
Entre os planos do Jobim Biscoito Fino, está a difusão via Internet das partituras e de outras fontes pertencentes ao acervo do Instituto Antonio Carlos Jobim
Palácio do Tom
Argumentar a tepidez vocal de Tom seria uma infelicidade. “Isto é bossa nova, isto é muito natural”, como ele mesmo e João cantam os versos de Newton Mendonça, o primeiro parceiro do tijucano de 1927 que se mudou para Ipanema com um ano. Então ninguém se espante com os sutis desvios orgânicos do, aos 54 anos, ainda tímido Maestro, ao longo deste recital.

Looking for Mr. Pinoy Bossa Nova
''WHY HIM?"
This was a friend demanding to know why I was working on a film about Bong Peñera.

Vinicius Cantuaria: Brazilian Soul
The music that Vinicius Cantuaria has created over the last decade represents a bridge between classic bossa nova and the hip 21st Century variations on the Tropicalia sound coming out of Rio De Janiero, New York City and Tokyo.

New York Times:
An Upbeat Bossa, With Nova Intentions
The core of Bebel Gilberto's concert on Wednesday night at Town Hall was two songs she sang alone with each of her guitarists, Pedro Baby Gomes and Masa Shimizu. They were bossa novas the way her father, the great Brazilian guitarist and singer João Gilberto, would have sung them: sparse and pensive, tinged with melancholy and yearning.

Sydney Morning Herald:
Rio, grandly
There's more to Brazil's Bebel Gilberto than a fabulous musical heritage

The Age
Heart music
Bebel Gilberto is part of Brazilian musical royalty, but she's long been a star in her own right

The Plain Dealer:
Bossa nova is South American singer's native language
The cold Elaine Elias is battling makes her seductive voice particularly husky. She has just gotten back from three weeks in Europe, touring behind her new album "Dreamer." She's tired but eager to get back on the road. Performing is a love of hers, even if traveling isn't.

The real star of Dave Pietro's Banda Brazil is not, as you might expect, Dave Pietro
That honor goes to his two drummers, Adriano Santos and Pedro Ito -- especially Ito.
