Digitally remastered and expanded edition of this 1959 album from the master of the Bossa Nova.
The Chega de Saudade album is supplemented by the impossibly rare EP of songs from the film Black Orpheus and recordings of some of the famous songs from Chega de Saudade by contemporaries such as Elizete Cardoso, Os Cariocas, Alaide Costa, Norma Bengell and Bola Sete. In the summer of 1958, a singer-guitarist from Bahia in the north of Brazil called João Gilberto created a musical revolution when he joined with Bossa Nova's seminal songwriting team, the gifted composer Antônio Carlos Jobim, and the poet and former diplomat, Vinicius de Moraes, to record the songs that would launch this cool, futuristic new music for a confident new era. Gilberto brought an unprecedented guitar style and a hushed, understated form of vocal expression that defined the movement and changed the course of music history. 24 tracks. 2010.
