iTunes Review

You don't need to be a bossa nova expert to love Jorge Ben's seductive, suave, and oft-covered "Mas, Que Nada!," the opening track of his 1963 debut. The album also features early signature tunes like the giddy "Tim Dom Dom," with its vocal imitations of a guitar, and the gentle samba "Chove Chuva." The breezy, modernist big-band arrangements here offset the intimate tone of his singing and strumming. Jorge Ben got funkier and more eclectic in years to come, but he never sounded sweeter than this.

Great for Sergio Mendes lovers and Tropicalia lovers alike.

Great Album

Jorge Ben is one of the best latin singers in the world. This album is amazing.I loved it!!!!!!!
