Charlie Byrd and the Emphemeral

This might be the most sublime of all of Jobim's melodies and therefore one of the most sublime melodies of all-time.

When I was just starting to learn guitar, my dad and I went to a little clinic and concert that Charlie gave at the Munro Music store in Huntington, NY in about 1980. He signed our (Dad's) copy of this record. I still have it. Let's hear you say something like that about an mp3.

The Byrd/Stan Getz stuff is pretty spectacular and in the same vein.
