This performance was recorded live on mono 7 ½ Ampex reel-to-reel tape, using a battery powered portable Grundig TK-1. The tape, despite having remained unplayed for almost 60 years, had conservation deficiencies inherent to its age. For its release, the original sound has been restored employing the most advanced techniques and carefully 24-bit digitally mastered, in order to obtain the highest possible quality and fidelity, to provide the greatest pleasure to the listener.

Press reviews

"If your only association with Brazilian music is Stan Getz’s classic albums, this collection of previously unreleased music by charter member Joao Gilberto will come as a revelation. The recording (with adequate  to good sound quality) has Gilberto in an intimate club settingat the Club 676 back in October 10, 1962. The fascinating aspect of this album is that is shows the various ways that samba and bossa nova were presented at the time; it wasn’t just one dimensional at all.

Especially with the vocals. There is a collection nof songs that we are all familiar with, suc as “So Danco Samba” and “Samba De Uma Nota So” that are presented with Gilberto backed up by the bel canto vocal team of Filho, Badeco, Quaretera and  Luiz Roberto delivering fervent readings. The vocal team then drops out for intimate moments with Gilberto and guitar on “Dolaice”, “Meditacao”, “Corcovado” and rarer pieces such as “Quero Ser Assim” before delving into “Ipanema”. There’s something hauntingly innocent about the whole event, with nary a hint of North American polish or influence. A trip back in time to another world."
