Sowing Records present a reissue of Joao Gilberto's self-titled third album, originally released in 1961. The fruit of the collaboration between Gilberto and the great composer and arranger Antonio Carlos Jobim and Walter Wanderley and his ensemble. This is one of the greatest pieces of work in the field of Brazilian music. Gilberto's delicate singing moves on top of extremely subtle, elegant orchestral arrangements of various songs from a classic repertoire, "Samba da Minha Terra" and "Saudade da Bahia" (Dorival Caymmi), "O Barquinho" (Roberto Menescal/Ronaldo Bôscoli) without forgetting essential numbers by Carlos LyraVinicius de Moraes, and Tom Jobim. A timeless masterpiece. Clear vinyl.
