Elis & Tom

I just got a great CD from a friend at work.  She’s from Brazil and so I’ve confessed to her my deep love for Brazilian music of the 60’s and 70’s.  She knows I consider Jobim to be a god of songwriting.  Well, she just came back from Brazil with a great album called Elis & Tom that is known by many to be one of the greatest bossa nova albums of all time.  This was not known by me or I would have surely already owned it.  Anyway, it’s really really good.  Elis Regina is the singer, one of the most popular brazilian singers ever and her voice is perfectly suited to the music of Tom Jobim.  Check out this youtube video of the most popular track from the album, Aguas de Marco.
