"Retrospective compilation featuring João Gilberto's seminal and profoundly influential first three albums on one CD. João Gilberto remains something of a perplexing enigma. A reluctant star of a musical genre he helped pioneer, the bossa nova singer/guitarist has steadfastly rejected the limelight for fifty years. Gilberto's music however is unimpeachable and as a musician he nothing short of a genius. This compilation comprises João Gilberto's seminal and profoundly influential first three albums in full, and in doing so chronicles a key early phase in the evolution of bossa nova music. Appended to these tracks are two rare non-album bonus cuts, only previously released on an EP in 1959."
