Guitarist Charlie Byrd revisits a variety of bossa nova songs, including nine by Antonio Carlos Jobim on this pleasing and accessible set. What makes this release stand out from his many similar dates is that Ken Peplowski’s clarinet and tenor are well featured, adding variety to the music and a lead voice for Byrd to play off of. Otherwise the music is predictably excellent, with such classics as “One Note Samba”, “Corcovado”, “Dindi”, “O Pato”, and “The Girl from Ipanema” receiving very favorable treatment.
