"This reissue... proves why Bonfá is heralded as one of bossa nova's most important and prolific interpreters. Accompanied by an unidentified horn and rhythm section and recorded in Paris in 1962 and '63, the album features original compositions, many of them coauthored by Maria Helena Toledo, and features Bonfá's rhythmically charged guitar style and his extraordinary, expressive vocal. The fourth track, 'Dor Que Faz Doer,' includes his percussive beating on the body of the guitar, and his probing vocal on the lilting 'Teu Olhar Triste' makes for one of the more tender pieces in the collection... Le Roi de la Bossa Nova is a celebration of the brilliance of one of Brazil's most beloved artists and should be a must for all avid collectors." --Rebeca Mauleón, JazzTimes
