Luiz Bonfá is celebrated for his "Black Orpheus" film score and its familiar theme, "Manhã de Carnaval" (aka "A Day in the Life of a Fool"). Along with Antônio Carlos Jobim, João Gilberto and Baden Powell, Bonfá is a principal architect of the languid, contemporary cool Brazilian sound eventually called bossa nova. His technical virtuosity, warmth, intimacy, and dynamism suffuse every track of this CD release of the 1959 LP, plus alternate takes, and previously unreleased cuts from the original studio session. 70 mins. 31 tracks, 32 page booklet with extensive notes by Anthony Weller.
