Minor 7th Review by Alan Fark
"Some very challenging music which comes off as breezy as a Brazilian evening"
Ithamara Koorax & Juarez Moreira "Bim Bom," 2009
João Gilberto has been known as the "Bossa Nova Pope" ever since releasing his first album in 1959. To say that he has been an influential force in Brazilian music ever since is an incredible understatement. Brazilian singer Ithamara Koorax and guitarist Juarez Moreira have teamed together to laud Gilberto's contributions with the recording of "Bim Bom - The Complete João Gilberto Songbook," consolidating the entire Gilberto catalogue of compositions.
